Weatherboarding

Traditional weatherboarding is of the tapered featheredge variety, which was developed in the 17th century. Shiplap should always be avoided in historic locations as it is a modern form of weatherboard. A number of other forms of historic weatherboard detail are also found and such detailing should always be retained or followed.
