When using reclaimed wood as exterior siding best-use installation techniques based on region and environment are very important. Reclaimed wood will continue to age, change color and texture when applied to the outside of a building. In order to preserve reclaimed wood siding's integrity we highly advise applying Centennial-Seal™.
This milling process edges the boards so they are rabbeted making the top edge of each board lap over the bottom edges of adjacent boards creating a flush joint. The bottom edge of one board will be recessed which receives the shaped or molded edge of the board next to it. Originally shiplap was used as siding for buildings in cold and extreme environments. Shiplap can be used for both horizontal and vertical applications and come with our aged "Laramie" finish with a planed, raw finish available. These reclaimed wood boards contribute towards satisfying credits MR3, MR4, and MR5 under LEED®.
