Shiplap was originally used as an exterior siding due to its water resistant characteristics but is now a sought after look for interior wall paneling. Our shiplap boards are created by milling recycled boards from Wyoming snow fences. This milling process edges the boards so they are precision-straight with rabbeted edges. The top, cut-out edge of each board laps over the bottom notch of the adjacent boards creating a flush joint. Shiplap is most often used in either horizontal or vertical applications.
These reclaimed wood shiplapboards contribute towards satisfying credits MR3, MR4, and MR5 under LEED®.
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 15 square foot bundle of reclaimed shiplap sold we will donate one seedling to the Forest Service’s pdrogram. 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.
