Shiplap Cladding Features & Benefits

Shiplap UPVC cladding is a great choice for exterior cladding, for a variety of reasons. Not only is it maintenance-free and easy to install, it’s also energy-efficient and sustainable. Shiplap cladding is also super long-lasting, and is available in a wide range of colours to suit any property.

  • Versatile Shiplap cladding can be fixed horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, over brickwork, block, and timber frames.
  • Low maintenance Shiplap UPVC cladding has a weather-resistant skin that prevents moisture from penetrating into the core of the board.
  • Variety of colours Our shiplap cladding comes in several different colours to suit aesthetic or practical preferences.
  • Long-lasting Plastic shiplap cladding has a 10-year guarantee, which covers both product performance & significant discolouration.

Shiplap Cladding Technical Specification

Each exterior shiplap cladding board measures 5m x 150mm and covers an area of 0.75 square metres. Our shiplap cladding boards are made by FloPlast and carry a ten-year colour and performance guarantee and a reaction to fire classification of D-s3, d2/(AHM). As market leading products, our ranges of plastic wall cladding have gained BBA Certification as well as being British Standards Registered.


Shiplap Cladding Further Information

VARIETY OF COLOURS

Our shiplap cladding is supplied in a range of colours, including:

  • White continues to be the most popular colour in our range of shiplap UPVC cladding
  • Anthracite grey fits with the trending grey home furnishings that have been popular in recent years
  • A striking yet classic option for any property is black ash
  • The vibrant, warm tones of our golden oak exterior shiplap cladding are the perfect accompaniment to the classic property
  • Rosewood provides a natural, woodgrain finish, similar to traditional timber cladding

Maintenance Free

Thanks to its weatherproof skin, shiplap UPVC cladding will not deteriorate due to rot, a problem that traditional timber can be susceptible to. It also won’t need protective coatings to maintain the appearance and climate resistance of the boards.

We do recommend that, if the installation covers walls that are either in exposed locations or not weather-tight, you should use a suitable backing membrane to ensure that your installation is totally watertight.

Is shiplap cladding sustainable?

Our ship lap cladding system has been assessed and given an A+ rating. This means that the specifier or builder can claim the code for sustainable homes maximum of three points when using our UPVC shiplap cladding on an external wall system.

Is shiplap cladding safe?

The spread of flame across the surface of shiplap cladding is limited, but it can char or fall away if exposed to fire. Due consideration should be given to any combustible materials behind the cladding, which may become exposed in the event of fire.

Is shiplap cladding energy efficient?

Plastic shiplap cladding also has the benefit of providing an additional external barrier, reducing thermal loss from the inside of the building. This has been recognised by the A+ rating under the Code for Sustainable Homes.

Does shiplap cladding reduce noise?

Exterior shiplap cladding has acoustic properties that lead to a reduction in background noise from outside.

Shiplap Cladding Installation & Maintenance

Shiplap cladding is supplied in lengths of 5 metres and is easy to install. Much like timber cladding, shiplap UPVC cladding can easily be cut and nailed using tools, and is relatively lightweight, allowing for easy transportation and installation.

Certain direct suppliers are able to ship outside of these areas depending on product quantity and availability. Please get in touch with us regarding any such queries.

 

SPLIT DELIVERIES

If you have ordered a mixture of goods that come both from us and direct from our manufacturing partners, you will be advised of this in your dispatch email. As the order is coming from two locations, you will receive two different deliveries. Delivery on direct items can have extended lead times and will need someone present to check and sign for the goods.

Occasionally, we don't have all items in stock at our main warehouse. If this is the case, we will endeavour to send the stock the same day from one of our other branches, in order to not delay delivery of the complete order. This may lead to a split delivery, dependant on the courier being used. We will contact you if there is going to be a delay due to this.

 

LABOUR AND MACHINERY

Please do not book machinery or labour until your goods have been received. Whilst every effort is made by our couriers to deliver your parcel within the stated timeframe, PVC Cladding cannot be held responsible for any additional costs incurred by delays outside of our control.

 

CHECKING AND SIGNING FOR ORDERS

SIGNED FOR POLICY – T&CS

All orders should be signed for. If you are unable to sign for your delivery, you can arrange with us for a neighbour to take delivery of your order. You can also advise us of a safe place where your order can be left, although we cannot take responsibility for any shortages or obvious damages.

Please ensure that you always check the number of packages that you are signing for. If there is an incorrect number of packages or any package appears damaged, you should note this on the signature panel and advise us so that we can rectify the issue as quickly as possible. Once goods have been signed for as being received ‘complete and in good condition’, any claims are not covered by the carrier’s insurance company.

Signing for goods as ‘unchecked’ makes any claims inadmissible, so please check the number of packages and look for any signs of any damage, noting any issues on the signature panel. Although the delivery drivers are busy, they are contractually obliged to wait whilst you check your delivery.

WHAT IF I CAN’T WAIT IN ALL DAY?

There is a ‘Notes’ section of the Basket review page where you can request for your goods to be left in a safe location – just tell us where to leave the order. Please not that we cannot take responsibility for any shortages or obvious damages if goods have not been signed for.

Please note that deliveries made by DHL (these are generally small orders with no pipe or bulky products) cannot be left in a safe location. You will be advised which carrier will be delivering your order by email at the point of dispatch.
