NOT SHIPLAP: NICKEL GAP TONGUE & GROOVE

Nickelgap

Traditional shiplap, long associated with woodland cabins and coastal cottages, is a classic wallboard that is enjoying a renewed popularity in a residential or commercial building.

When talking with our diehard shiplap fans, we discovered they plan to paint the wood white and want to achieve a consistent nickel gap spacing between each board.

Traditional shiplap, however, doesn't give our customer what they want:

  • It doesn't offer a nickel gap between each board 

  • It requires unsightly face nails every 16"

  • It is made from low grade, knotty lumber (these knots typically bleed through the paint, creating the look of a water stain on the wall.)

To achieve the modern farmhouse look without these drawbacks, we created our NOT SHIPLAP: Nickel Gap Wallboard. 

  • NO knots to bleed thru the paint (made from Select Southern Pine)

  • NO face nails (Elongated tongue hides the nails)

  • A perfect nickel gap between every board (has stop built in to the T&G profile)

  • Installation flows much faster

If you are looking to paint your Nickel Gap, check out Southern Yellow Pine. For the customer who wants to stain their Nickel Gap and doesn't mind knots we also offer Nickel Gap in Eastern White Pine. Custom runs of our NOT SHIPLAP: Nickel Gap T&G are also available in White Oak, Black Walnut, Cherry, CypressPoplar, and Ambrosia Maple.
