Shiplap was originally used as an exterior siding. Due to the popularity of home improvement shows like Fixer Upper on HGTV shiplap is now a sought after look for interior walls, ceilings, and doors. Our reclaimed shiplap is created by milling reclaimed boards. Our milling process edges the boards so they are straight with rabbeted edges. The top edge of each board laps over the bottom edges of adjacent boards creating a flush joint. If you prefer a slight gap between boards you can use a coins or washers as spacers during the installation process. Shiplap is most often used in either horizontal or vertical applications. Our reclaimed shiplap boards are available in a variety of finishes. These boards are 3/8" thick with a 4.5" face and come in 4' or 6' lengths. These reclaimed wood boards contribute towards satisfying credits MR3, MR4, and MR5 under LEED®.
Our 6 foot long boards will cover approximately 2.25 square feet and our 4 foot long boards will cover approximately 1.5 square feet.
Centennial Woods is participating in the USDA Forest Service’s Plant-a-tree Program to help reforest public areas that have suffered from drought, flood, fire, or infestations. The Forest Service accepts donations which are earmarked for planting seedlings in our National Forests wherever they are needed across the USA.
For every bundle of reclaimed wood that we sell online we will donate one seedling to the Forest Service’s program. So far we have donated over 500 seedling trees, enough to cover nearly 2 acres (approximately 300 seedlings cover one acre). We hope to help keep our forest’s healthy by helping to reforest areas that have been hit the hardest.
