Nickel Gap Shiplap
What exactly is nickel gap shiplap?
Nickel gap shiplap is a type of siding often used in rustic or country-style homes. Its name comes from the idea that you can place a nickel between panels. This type of shiplap has become one of the hottest trends and a staple of modern farmhouse style.
How do I decide if nickel gap is right for me?
First, you might want to get a sample to see what the colors look like in your home. This is because cell phones and computer screens vary in how they show colors.
Pro tip: when they arrive, look at your samples in different rooms and times of the day. The amount of light in a room can change how colors appear, and you'll want something that looks good at all times!
Then, head over to our calculator, where you can figure out how much material you'll need for your project. And don't hesitate to contact us with any questions! You can order here on our site or by calling us, whatever's easier for you.
What do I need to install it?
We have a full guide for this, but all you need to know is that our panels are "peel and stick." This means that each piece comes pre-applied with adhesive. Remove the paper backing off each board and place it on your wall as needed.
Then, use a "j-roller" to ensure a firm connection, and you're set!
Why do people like peel and stick panels?
Not only are peel and stick panels easy to install. They also offer a few advantages over using a hammer and nails:
- Your wall won't be full of nail holes, which you can fill, but the color might not match the panels.
- You won't risk damage to the drywall or plaster in your walls. This can distract from the colors on your panels.
- Your home will get a clean look that you can complete in a few hours.
You'll have no problem installing your shiplap wall, even if you're a first-time DIYer. Plus, you'll elevate the look of your home without breaking the bank. Get your nickel gap shiplap sample today!
