Siding boards, typically with a rabbeted overlapping edge, that are nailed horizontally to vertical studs with or without intervening sheathing to form the exposed surface of outside walls of frame buildings.
Type of lining boards, which have rectangular section grooves between. Sidelights - Fixed glass panels flanking a door or window opening. In Victorian and Edwardian buildings, often coloured or leadlight.
wooden sheathing in which the boards are rabbeted so that the edge of each board laps over the edges of adjacent boards to make a flush joint (a rabbet is a channel, groove, or recess cut out of the edge or face of a surface, usually to enable one edge to receive another, as in paneling).
( planche à feuillure) siding or cladding of horizontally laid boards with notched edges that make an overlapping joint, applied to the outside of a wood-framed building, or a stone wall, to make it weatherproof; the face of each board is parallel to the plane of the wall (also called drop siding).
1. Lumber that has been worked to make a lapped, or rabbeted joint on each edge so that pieces may be fitted together snugly for increased strength and stability. 2. A similar pattern cut into plywood or other wood panels used as siding, to assure a tight joint.
Shiplap is a term used to describe a type of wooden board used commonly in the construction of barns, sheds, outbuildings and inexpensive or seasonal homes. It is either rough-sawn 1" or milled 3/4" pine or similarly inexpensive wood between 3" and 10" wide with a 3/8" - 1/2" rabbet on opposite sides of each end. The rabbet allows the boards to overlap in this area.
