What are the differences? 

Knotty Pine Shiplap the best choice for a bright tone if left natural, or if you plan to paint any color (except white).  

  

Rustic Fir Shiplap is tight knot Douglas Fir. This is the most diverse shiplap. It can be painted, stained or left natural for a  rich color tone.  Visit the page to also see how Fir can be aged with a mixture of vinegar and steel wool.  Knots and wood grain will show through paint and provide the most authentic look possible.  

Paint Grade Shiplap can be painted white, (or other colors). The gesso coating (a mixture of primer and plaster) covers knots and wood grain for a clean smooth surface.  This material also available in 1/2" thin-lap.  

Clear VG Douglas Fir Shiplap is the most elegant shiplap we offer.  It is often finished with just a clear coat.  Customers have used this over fireplaces, for ceiling or soffit boards, in office buildings and dramatic home entries.    

  

What is shiplap?

 

The definition of “shiplap” has changed over the years, and there are many folks that need to proclaim their intelligence of historical correctness. In fact, original shiplap was rabbeted on top and bottom, and was used as a covering for sheds, barns, cabins and homes.  On interior walls, shiplap was used as sheathing but was never meant to be exposed. After installation it would be covered with fabric to hide the joints, and covered with plaster or wallpaper.  

 

Today, the use of shiplap shows up as a visually appealing accent wall covering.  The appearance can be of a remodeled farmhouse, a new home with fine details, or restored classic.  With a clean painted look, a wood covered wall makes any room feel warmer. Sometimes called “nickel-gap” the original rabbeted lap joint is often replaced with a tongue and groove joint that adds strength and stability, while providing a draft free wall covering.  T&G has the added value of one board firmly securing itself to the next, which resists edges from lifting off the wall as natural wood acclimates to interior conditions.
