Top Shiplap Cladding related questions

You can, but it takes skill to plan and finish the project. Not everyone is as handy. Installing shiplap cladding also requires tools, equipment, and supplies. Purchasing all of these may cost you more in the long run. Opt to work with a Tasker instead and get it done without any hassle!

You might be required to get council approval and secure permits, depending on the size of the surface that needs cladding. These requirements vary per location, so check your local council’s website. You can also ask your Tasker for help! Since they’re the experts on installing shiplap cladding in your area, they might be able to assist you in determining whether you need approval or not.

Shiplap cladding has been around for decades! It gives off a classy, clean look along with numerous benefits that are not visible to most. If you’re looking for additional insulation, weatherproofing, and an aesthetic upgrade all in one solution, shiplap cladding might be the right choice for you. It’s also more affordable compared to tongue and groove cladding.

Installing timber or uPVC shiplap cladding can take about a day or two for small sheds and two to five days for bungalows. Bigger properties will need more time or more people. If time is a concern, it’s best to include it in your post so that Taskers can assess if they have the manpower to complete your project by then.

Most areas require contractors to have specific licences, and Taskers are highly encouraged to put these licences on their profiles. You can again confirm with your local council office or website if there are needed documents. If the Tasker that sent you an offer doesn’t have the licence number on his profile, feel free to ask them about it through the messaging feature on our platform.

You don’t have to! Taskers have all of the tools and equipment that you need. What you can provide, however, is the material itself. You might want to choose your own raw material or have already bought them. Just let your Tasker know so that there’s no miscommunication with the expenses. He can even help you with picking a suitable material!

With the numerous benefits of having shiplap cladding on your property, it’s not a surprise that there are many applications and kinds of services that you can book on Airtasker, including:

Timber shiplap cladding

The most common shiplap cladding uses timber after it has been treated. This makes the wood more resistant to elements that can cause damage, such as rain, heat, pests and even impact caused by hitting the surface. 

Shiplap got its name from its first use and how it’s installed. This type of cladding was used for ships before, and each board overlapped with the other. Over time, the wood became less rustic and started looking more polished for residential properties. It then became a popular cladding style for cabins and summerhouses because of its natural appearance and cosy vibe. Numerous resorts and wellness facilities use this style to give their property a beautiful and inviting facade.

Whether you’re working on a residential project or a commercial one, Airtasker is an ideal place to find contractors for treated shiplap cladding near you! Numerous Taskers can work with all types of wood and design projects, such as installing a pergola or staining a wooden deck.

uPVC shiplap cladding

When someone says shiplap, timber cladding is the first to come to mind. However, uPVC is also available in shiplap panels. Some are coloured, while others are designed to look like other natural elements. This makes uPVC an even more affordable option while retaining aesthetics. It also lasts for years before showing signs of damage. Property owners may opt to have wood panels indoors for windows, doors, and ceilings while changing the external cladding to uPVC. 

When your outdoor window frame needs to be repaired, let us connect you to Taskers offering uPVC shiplap cladding near you in just a few taps! You can enjoy the authentic wooden look indoors without having to spend too much on exterior improvements.

Shiplap cladding for sheds

It’s easy to find shiplap cladding for sheds near you on Airtasker. This keeps out moisture, prevents weeds from growing inside the shed and adds durability to the overall structure. While sheds are already built for outdoors, cladding can ensure that deterioration doesn’t kick in sooner. Property owners can put up a task for new shed installation or just cladding if you already have one!

There are endless options for tasks that you can have done here on Airtasker. You can even find Taskers who offer maintenance and repair services for your wooden fixtures, cleaning your pool or landscaping for your garden.
