Installing Shiplap Siding

When you have to install Shiplap siding you need to know what it is. Ship Lap Siding is a type of Drop Lap siding. It has tight joints that are similar to tongue and groove it laps over 1/2″ depth of rabbe. Normally Shiplap siding is kiln dried. What is special in Shiplap siding is that you can install it horizontally or vertically and with the edge of one board having a recessed area along its rear. The shaped top-rear edge of the board that is next to or below it, helps to exclude any  water that can collect and fall during heavy rain. When it comes to the vertical applications, then the bevel cut the ends and installs the shiplap siding so that the water is directed to the outside of the structure. Ship lap siding is very much similar to the clapboard siding but in the long term is more attractive as well secure and also watertight. Shiplap is better known for its strength. Shiplap siding can form a very tight seal when it is lapped. Shiplap is more that often used as siding for some buildings that generally do not require any type of daily or extensive maintenance or where the structure has to withstand the cold and aggressive climates. For the posts and the beams on a construction, the rough sawn shiplap siding is attached in a  vertical position with 6d-8d common nails. Milled ship lap siding has a smooth surface that shows well once installed and is more smoother. It is suited to two-by frame construction as it provides a tighter seal. This is generally placed horizontally. Ship lap siding can be installed without much effort so the cost is minimal and there is hardly any material wastage.
