In terms of plank width, you have the option of nominal size 1”x7” Shiplap Plank (XXX-SID18-178TG-PP) or 1x6 Shiplap Plank (XXX-SID18-137TG-PP) shiplap planks. Our siding planks are 6 feet long with a shiplap profile on the long side and T&G End-match on the end for an endless joint installation. When installed with the designed fastener, either sheathing or batten, the fastener will allow the planks to overlap on top of the other planks for a clean elegant look.
Installation time and product wastage is reduced by 50% compared to traditional wood plank installation.
The most popular wider 7” plank gives a luxurious appearance with less seams or joints. It also reduces the usage of installation accessories and workload thus cutting down installation cost.
Installation is simplified with the designed fasteners and the planks can be installed horizontally or vertically. Use Drip Cap at the base and select appropriate aluminum trim pieces for corners, tops or joins. Our lumber can be routed to your trim pieces as well depending on your choice of looks. It is a RainClad® Siding that buffers heat from traveling into your home from direct contact.
