What is the difference between Overlap, Shiplap, and Loglap?

Overlap cladding is a rough-cut board with a finished cut thickness of 9mm. The cladding boards in the walls of an Overlap Shed will overlap each other and generally, the Overlap Sheds will include a roof and floor constructed using 9mm butt-jointed timber boards.

Shiplap cladding is a type of tongue and groove but there is a slight profile to each board to aid water run-off. Our Shiplap cladding is a smooth-planed board with a finished cut thickness of 12mm.  Apart from the Tiger Wooden Garage (which has no floor at all), the Shiplap Sheds include a 12mm tongue and groove roof and floor. Our range of Pressure Treated Sheds are also made of Shiplap cladding but the boards have a thicker cut finish at 16mm and a 16mm tongue and groove roof and floor.

Available as an upgrade on most of our Shiplap Shed range, Loglap cladding is still tongue and groove but rather than a flat finish to each cladding board, each board has a curved finish. The loglap boards are planed to 15mm at the thickest point. As with the Shiplap Sheds, our Loglap buildings will generally include a 12mm tongue and groove roof and floor.
