What do shiplap siding services include?

Siding comes in different styles and materials, and one of them is shiplap siding. This is a type of wood siding made from board planks. Typical horizontal shiplap siding is designed so that each plank overlaps slightly with the next one. The design seals the siding while giving your wall a smooth finish. Contractors may recommend shiplap siding because it is less susceptible to buckle and crack over time. Here’s what’s typically involved when you hire a Tasker for this type of siding job:

Installing shiplap siding

Shiplap siding can last for more than two decades when installed and maintained correctly. It’s also best to leave the installation to professionals since they have their own tools and have relevant experience. Whether it’s cedar, pine, or vinyl, Taskers can readily handle all sorts of material for your siding project.


Your Tasker starts with the bottom of the wall and cuts the first board horizontally. They then proceed to nail or screw the boards into the studs. The tongues and grooves of the planks need to be tightly connected to leave no space for air. This will be done until the entire wall has been covered with wooden planks. 

Dealing with exterior shiplap siding

Exterior shiplap siding has the same functions as exterior siding. Its primary role is to protect your home from the elements while keeping it insulated. The trouble with this type of siding is that it is made of wood which can be more susceptible to termites and molds.


Wood has a cozy aesthetic making it perfect for when you’re considering getting a shed built, want to add timber decking or have a wooden fence installed around your property. If you’re keen on using wood, it’s best to go with cedar shiplap siding. This type of lumber is more moisture resistant and naturally staves off termites and other pesky pests. 


If these problems come around, you can hire another Tasker to repair your home’s wooden features or even replace your shed’s wooden roof. Another option homeowners can use is shiplap vinyl siding. It’s a tough plastic material that serves both aesthetic and weatherproofing functions. It gives the same finish as wooden shiplap siding but is a more durable option.

Shiplap siding for interior design

Shiplap siding may also be used for the interiors of homes. It helps give an illusion of a wider or taller space if the shiplap is installed horizontally or vertically. It is also known to be durable. However, you need to take extra care if you’ll be installing this in a room that uses water. For living room and dens, you can choose to use pine shiplap siding. However, it’s best to go with cedar shiplap siding for rooms like the kitchen or bathroom, which are more exposed to moisture and water.
