Product Description
Fitting Guidance

European Oak Shiplap Cladding

We supply Oak Shiplap Cladding in the following profiles:

  • IWC6 - 19mm x 145mm overall, with a 135mm face - For horizontal fitting
  • IWC7 - 19mm x 145mm overall, with a 128mm face - For horizontal fitting

These profiles are designed to be fitted horizontally and give you a choice between a 135mm or 128mm face.

You have a choice between our Prime Grade and Light Character grades of Oak when selecting your Shiplap cladding. The main difference between the two is the knot content. Prime Grade is almost knot free and any knots found will only be small knots, so it gives your cladding a modern clean look. Whereas, Light character grade is a knottier grade with a more traditional look without any large dead knots.

All of our European Oak shiplap cladding is kiln dried so it is essential that you seal your cladding by treating it. This will reduce movement in the timber so that it doesn’t expand and contract as much with the seasons.

Shiplap cladding is supplied in random lengths of 2m and longer. We can supply exact lengths if required however please call us on 01889 279 018 or talk to us on the online chat first to make sure we can supply the required lengths. Once you have checked with us you can then add those lengths into the “Special Instructions” box on the shopping basket page.


It's important to seal kiln dried oak all round to prevent moisture getting in. We recommend talking to if you would like to treat your timber. If you do decide to treat your timber, it needs to be treated all the way round including the ends to prevent moisture getting in at all.

To get a price, you can type in how many square metres of cladding you need. It's very easy to work out.

We're going to work out the total area of one side of a building, then subtract the windows and doors, then add 10% extra for wastage.

1) For each wall that you’re cladding, measure the full width and the height in metres to work out the total area.

In this (expertly designed) example, the frontage is 9 metres wide and 4.7 metres high. 9 x 4.7 gives a total 42.3 square metres.

How to measure For Cladding Step 1

Total area of frontage = 9 * 4.7 = 42.3 square metres

2) Work out the area of the doors and windows

In this house front there are four windows and a door. Measure the width and height of each window and door, then add the areas together:

How to measure For Cladding Step 2

  • Window 1: 1.9 x 1.2m = 2.28 square metres
  • Window 2: 1.2 x 1.2m = 1.44 square metres
  • Window 3: 1.2 x 1.2m = 1.44 square metres
  • Window 4: 1.9 x 1.2m = 2.28 square metres
  • Door: 1.0m x 2.0m = 2.00 square metres

Total area of windows and doors = 9.44 square metres

3) Subtract the area of the doors and windows from the total area of the wall.

We now have our total area (42.3 square metres) and the total area of the doors and the windows (9.44 square metres). Because we don't want cladding to cover the windows and door, we take the door and window area away from the total area.

Total area to clad = 42.3 – 9.44 = 32.86 square metres to clad

4) Add at least 10% spare for wastage

We recommend ordering at LEAST 10% more cladding than you've measured for to account for the required cutting and shaping.

32.86 square metres + 10% = 36.146 square metres. In this case, we'd round it up to 37 square metres.

Total to order = 37 square metres

Do the same for any other sides of the building, add them together and you'll have your grand total.
