If you're looking for authentic-looking barn wood, UFP-Edge® Charcoal Rustic Shiplap was made for you. It's not true weathered barn wood because mold and bugs—ew. It's new, high-grade lumber surface distressed, primed, and painted a dark charcoal color to look like wood salvaged from a forsaken old North Carolina barn.
Rabbeted edges make installation easier. Boards overlap without gaps. Ends butt together. Exposed face is 4-5/8 inches. Kiln dried to minimize shrinking, swelling, and warping.
Charcoal color is like a sheer black. Color is worn in spots, heavier on others. Boards are painted and textured on both sides.
Be forewarned, friends. "Rough-sawn texture" means exactly that. This shiplap has a ridgy, rough feel.
DON'T USE THESE OUTSIDE: If you take your chances anyway, you must use a wood protector sealant. Really.
COLOR: Color may be lighter or darker in areas, because of distressing and wood's natural characteristics. Wood grain and knots might show. If consistent color is important for your project, we recommend buying at least 10% more boards than you think you need. Embrace imperfectness.
Installation notes: For accent walls, boards can be installed horizontally or vertically on walls and ceilings. Not recommended for flooring or shelving. In bathrooms: Seal boards with waterproof sealer. Square footage (in product specs) are based off exposed board face width.
