The problem with Traditional shiplap…

I have a new build home [finished in early 2016] with real painted shiplap. My builder primed and spray painted with Latex paint. Within 6 mos. I had knot holes and resin [yellow streaks] bleed. I hired another contractor to prime and paint using oil-based paint. Now 3 – 4 mos. after it was painted with a brush by 2nd contractor knot hole and resin bleed showing up again… This was [supposed] to be my dream home…farmhouse with real shiplap painted white.

the difference

Traditional Shiplap

  • Doesn’t offer a consistent “nickel gap” spacing between boards.

  • It requires face nails.

  • Made from a low grade knotty pine which can cause knot bleed (read testimony below!)

(not) Shiplap

  • Made from CLEAR (no knots) Southern Yellow Pine to ensure no bleed thru on the paint

  • Fabricated into our custom Tongue and Groove profile that leaves a perfect and consistent Nickel Gap between each board and eliminates face nails.

  • Installation flows faster and the final product provides a clean, modern look.

 

The success with (not) shiplap…

Andrew and his team were wonderful. They are excellent craftsmen, as well as good, honest, hardworking people...I love our (NOT) SHIPLAP: Nickel Gap Wallboard - it gave our home the perfect look of a cozy farmhouse, but with a clean, more formal finish given the smooth texture of the wood... Communication was always prompt, and wood and commissioned items were always delivered quickly. The pricing was very reasonable as well. I loved the way all aspects of our Water’s Edge Woods projects turned out, and I cannot recommend them highly enough!
