Skiplap Wall CladdingPosted: February 11, 2019
Better than Shiplap, our exclusive line of Skiplap has a nickel gap and is T&G on all 4 sides which makes it a zero waste wood wall cladding. Available in 8 colors, our interlocking wood cladding is easily the highest quality crafted wood wall & ceiling boards on the market. It is packaged in easy-to-handle 17.7 square foot boxes with factory-direct sales that ship anywhere in the U.S.
Difference between Skiplap and Shiplap:
Shiplap, by definition, is “boards that have been milled so the top and bottom of each piece has a rabbet joint, so they can be stacked as siding“. In a nutshell, shiplap wood wall boards rest on top of each other and overlap, versus tongue-and-groove boards which join together and interlock. One of the best advantages of tongue and groove boards is you can blind nail directly through the tongue. Shiplap boards must be face nailed which can be unsightly if left alone or create more work if you choose to putty the holes.
100% of our Skiplap boards are produced from salvaged and SFI Certified Douglas Fir and Beetle Killed Pine and are proudly made in Montana. Each board is custom kiln dried to 6-8% moisture content and tongue and groove on all 4 sides. Due to the tongue and groove on the ends (also called end matching), you can float each board between the studs or joists. End matched boards result in zero-waste wall paneling, installation is much like flooring. We strictly grade each Skiplap board to what we call our 99% usable specifications. Each board comes pre-finished with hand-rubbed penetrating oils and topped off with multiple coats of our clear satin varnish. Conveniently packaged in boxes that contain 8 boards and cover 17.7 square feet. Our Skiplap wall and ceiling boards are widely considered to be the highest quality wall boards on the market.
