What is shiplap tongue and groove cladding?

Return to all questions

Tongue and groove cladding is where each board has a ‘tongue’ which locks into the ‘groove’ of the board above. Due to the boards connecting, tongue and groove sheds last much longer and are far stronger than an overlap shed where each board overlaps the board beneath. Power sheds are comprised of shiplap tongue and groove cladding which is a form of tongue and groove.

Shiplap cladding on a shed is a type of tongue and groove cladding. Shiplap cladding has the additional feature of a small profile at the top of each board. This little channel, allows water to run off the shed quicker than normal tongue and groove. This also helps the shed dry quickly after exposure to rain, helping to protect it from any water damage. Shiplap tongue and groove cladding also gives sheds an attractive appearance and has a robust and sturdy structure.
