What type of Pine is this?
This is a premium Ponderosa Pine. Ponderosa Pine is a Western White Wood that is commonly used for boards and pattern stock. These are abundant tree species that are cut from a highly sustainable timber basket.
What is the grade of wood?
It's a premium #2 grade that will have knots and a tight uniform grain. All product is smooth and planned for an impeccable finish that will take paint and stain exceptionally well. The material is cut from bigger and slower growing trees for superior dimensional stability.
Can I still paint this, or is this a stain grade only product?
Yes, you can absolutely still paint it and make it look as pristine as you wish. For a premium finish, it's recommended to uses a shellac based primer as this will cover the knots and prevent them from bleeding through.
Can this be used for ceilings?
This can definitely be used for ceilings. Pine is relatively light and is easy to work with, especially for a ceiling application.
Can I install this directly to the studs and skip the drywall step?
Yes, and it's fast and easy! Installed shiplap will cost you roughly the same as installed drywall. However certain municipalities still require sheetrock per local building code.
Can I install this directly over my drywall?
Absolutely, but you'll still want to fasten to the studs where possible, and you'll need to be careful of your interior window and door trim. Make sure you plan ahead and evaluate your current door and window trim. Our shiplap is 3/4" thick, so you could lose your shadow line if you have a thin reveal on your current trim.
Lengths are 8' and 16'. Does my order include a mixture of these lengths or can I specify which length I need?
If needed, you can specify exactly what lengths you need to help minimize waste. It's a common practice to send a mix of lengths on very large jobs.
Are both sides of this product nickel gap?
The primary face is a 1/8" nickel gap. The reverse face is what's known as a V-groove, meaning the two pieces will form a V when they come together at the tongue and groove. The reverse face is 100% usable, and we designed it this way to give you the flexibility to choose from both options.
I want to paint my shiplap. Which product is better … the pre-primed or the raw pine and why?
A lot depends on the exact finish you want. If you want a pristine uniform finish, the premium primed shiplap is the better option as it does not require any prep work. The raw pine can be made to look pristine, but it requires some priming and wood filler in spots. If you want to use a stain or a wash, the raw pine is a better choice.

Why Ponderosa Pine?
Ponderosa Pine is one of America's abundant tree species and is completely sustainable. There are three main benefits to Ponderosa Pine over other wood species:
1) Color & Grain
Ponderosa Pine has a minimal amount of reddish-brown heartwood and an exceptionally wide sapwood which is honey-toned or straw-like in color. It has a straight, uniform grain which machines to a clear, smooth surface. This means that it will take paint or stain exceptionally well, leaving a smooth even coat.
2) Dimensional Stability
All woods shrink and swell to some degree as their moisture content fluctuates with atmospheric conditions. However, Ponderosa Pine is relatively unaffected by changes in humidity after drying, making it valuable for work that requires close-fitting joints. It has a uniform cell structure and shrinks only a moderate amount, in comparison to other softwood species. It seasons beautifully with minimal splitting, cupping, or warping.
Due to its unique properties, Ponderosa Pine is very user-friendly, and will not splinter or split when cutting and nailing. This makes it ideal for unique craft projects like shelving, cabinet, and paneling where precision is required.
