Choosing a Solid Oak Profile

To ensure a quality finish and overall effect, our professional team can advise on the correct profile for your cladding.

All of the following profile choices are suitable for all external cladding. Our passion for quality service, as well as quality products, means that during our initial discussions we will be able to guide you to the correct profile for your project.

Tongue and Groove Profiled Cladding

As one of the most popular types of profile, tongue and groove profiled cladding is a method for joining the cladding panels together to create a smooth, flat surface.

This type of profile creates a strong joint between each panel and provides a very neat overall finish. This type of interlocking joint is a fantastic option for weatherproofing your structure and acts as a good insulator.

HalfLap Profiled Cladding

Our recommendation for Halflap profiled cladding is for use on contemporary new builds and modern extensions. This is because this profile creates a smooth finish and can be applied both vertically and horizontally. Similarly to other profile types, Halflap creates a waterproof facade for your structure.

ShipLap Profiled Cladding

Very similar to the tongue and groove profile. Shiplap cladding provides a comparable look and finish once installed.

Shiplap cladding profiles, however, have a longer lip. The benefit of this longer lip means that Shiplap oak cladding provides additional weather protection and optimum rainwater resistance.

We would recommend this profile for structures and buildings that require greater defence from heavy rainfall.
