Metro Building Products stocks true shiplap. Older houses often had plain wooden boards nailed to the frame, just below the siding, which could be used as sub-flooring as well. These boards have sometimes been mistakenly called shiplap, but true shiplap is so much more. True shiplap has special notch cuts, also called rabbets, on the edges of the boards so they fit together perfectly yet can’t be seen once installed.
- Rabbets allow boards to self-space and prevents water from getting in behind them, making them perfect for siding
- Once installed, rabbets are hidden, making shiplap great for interior walls
- Use for kitchens, baths, bedrooms, or any room
- Can be painted for a clean, classic design
- Can be left natural and weathered for a more rustic look
- Whatever way you use them, wood shiplap walls add warmth to a room
