Available Profiles

Square edge (butt-joint) shiplap features identical rabbeted edges on each side of the board. The rabbeted edges allow the boards to overlap and butt up together with no gaps. It also allows for spacing between boards at various widths with less overlap. 

Trim can be used to frame an accent wall or create additional projects that use a square board.

What is Charred Wood?

Charred wood, which is often referred to as “shou-sugi-ban” or “burnt wood,” is an ancient Japanese technique that preserves wood by carefully exposing it to a heat treatment. Although its first use is unknown, burned wood could be found in the construction of homes as exterior siding, flooring and fences as early as the 1700s.

The complete process of charring wood requires many steps of burning, cooling and cleaning the wood. Once the wood had reached the desired level of char, it could then be brushed, left untouched or sealed with a clear coat of stain. Varying the levels of char on the wood not only allowed for a more unique look, it also helped preserve the wood, protecting it from UV rays and weathering when used as an outdoor siding product.
