Hi,
Couple of planks of wooden cladding (house front at the midpoint) needs to be replaced. I would appreciate advice how to change only mid section?
Is it possible to replace damaged planks without need to remove rest of it?
Not sure if its shiplap or tongue & groove.
Thank you

If it is tongue and groove boarding then you cut the back edge of the groove off on the new board so that you can hook it under and then press in if that makes sense. Cutting out the existing could be much easier with a multitool.

to simplify your search you need to work out the coverage
the coverage is the distance between the same point on 2 planks
you then need to know iff the timber you are buying is imperial or metric
the timber will be the same size give or take about 3mm but will be described differently
if its imperial as in ex 6"x 3/4" that is the stock size before machining it will loose about 3-5mm in thickness it will also loose about 8mm from machining and a further 9 or 10mm for the tongue on the plank width
so your ex 6x3/4" will be around 133mmx16mm coverage and would be describe as perhaps 16x145mm if a metric description
thats interesting champions quote the imperial as metric but as i say will be around the 16x133mm mark
