Shiplap has been a popular siding option for decades, and for good reason. Shiplap is a classic siding that is easy to install, durable, and beautiful in its simplicity. With clean, crisp lines and a no-nonsense look, this siding option is timeless. However, don’t let the simplicity of this siding fool you. Shiplap can be used in a variety of applications to create inspiring looks that match your individual style. Check out these four unique ways to use Shiplap siding on your custom home.
While Shiplap is often used for exterior siding because of its durability and weather resistance properties, using Shiplap siding to enhance your home’s interior is also a great option. In recent years, Shiplap siding has become a popular interior paneling option. Its clean look helps create the perfect balance of simplicity and intrigue, making it the go-to choice for accent walls and ceilings.
At Marks Lumber in Clancy, MT, our circle sawn Douglas fir Shiplap is an excellent choice for interior applications where you're looking to bring that wow factor.
Soffit and Gables
With its classic look, Shiplap makes the perfect material to compliment your siding. Using circle sawn Shiplap in your gables or soffit is a great way to add character and make every little part of your home look custom and cohesive. Plus, Shiplap siding is easy to install, making it an excellent option for tedious applications like your soffit.
One of the best things about Shiplap siding is that it can be installed both vertically and horizontally. This allows you to mix and match orientations to create something fun and unique without becoming overwhelming or tacky. We love the look of horizontal siding with vertical gables to mix things up and add height to the peaks of your home.
Another way to use the simplicity of Shiplap to create something truly your own is to mix and match different widths. Shiplap siding is often sold in various sizes, allowing you to alternate widths to add intrigue and create depth. If you’re looking to really mix things up, you can also use different colors of stain to create a classic barnwood or Mountain Modern look.
At Marks Lumber, we offer 6-inch and 8-inch width Shiplap siding, allowing you to get creative and create something beautiful and custom-looking.
