At Marks Lumber, we believe in highlighting the natural beauty of wood products. Call it our Montana roots, but why mess with simple, natural perfection? Our circle sawn shiplap siding is the perfect example of this philosophy. So what makes Marks Lumber’s shiplap siding Montana’s choice siding option?
Natural, No Fuss Siding
Shiplap siding is a classic siding option, that has been around for centuries. This timeless siding can be installed vertically or horizontally, helping you achieve a variety of design goals. A simple dado edge allows the boards to overlap and butt together tightly, making installation quick and painless.
There’s nothing overly fancy about shiplap siding. Clean simple lines create an elegant look that helps complement almost any style of home. Marks Lumber’s shiplap siding is made using our unique circle saw head rig, adding an intricate texture that creates a stunning visual appeal. Made from inland Douglas fir, this siding effortlessly creates a warm and inviting look.
Montana Weather Tough
When choosing what type of siding to use for your home, appearance is just one small thing to consider. The siding is the shell of your home, protecting it from rain, wind, snow, and sun damage. At Marks Lumber, our Douglas fir shiplap siding is made to withstand all the wild weather we are subject to here in Montana. Douglas fir is an excellent choice for exterior applications as it is extremely durable and has natural rot-resistant properties.
To ensure a long-lasting siding product, it is important to make sure you apply a finish to all sides, edges, and cut ends. Marks Lumber will pre-finish your siding with Lifetime Weathering Treatment upon request. This one-and-done weathering agent helps protect your siding and ensures long-lasting wood products. With a beautiful weathered-brown finish color, this treatment only adds to the natural beauty of our circle sawn shiplap siding.
Locally Grown, Locally Manufactured, Designed for Locals
At Marks Lumber, we are dedicated to keeping things local. All of our products are made from Montana-grown Douglas fir and are sustainably sourced from quality foresters that follow Montana Forestry’s Best Management Practices. By exclusively using locally harvested logs, we can help lower our overall environmental footprint and keep our local forests healthy. By supporting active forest management in Montana, we can help improve air quality, water quality, and quality of life for all Montanans.
The Sustainable Advantage
Natural wood siding is one of the most environmentally friendly siding options available.
