    Difference between loglap and shiplap cladding

    Carpenters

    Could you explain to me what loglap and shiplap cladding are? What are the pros and cons of each? Which is better overall and when should one or the other be used?

    "The difference is log lap has a curved moulding on the face as shiplap has a concaved moulding and then finishes flat on the face, both are rebated into each other. So both do the same job it would only be down to cost and the decorative finish."

    "Shiplap cladding is a type of tongue and groove but there is a slight profile to each board to aid water run-off. 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."
