Kuiken Brothers is pleased to announce the addition of two new Shiplap profiles, KB914 and KB915 to our extensive in-stock collection of moulding & pattern stock profiles.
We are now stocking ShipLap boards 1×6 (KB914PFJP) and 1×8 (KB915PFJP) options to allow our customers to quickly achieve a wainscoting and wall cladding look. WindsorONE Shiplap Boards are perfect for when you really want to stop and take notice in wainscoting and ceiling applications.
Are you looking for a way to make your project unique? Choose your reveal; install with up to a 1/2” gap between boards. 3/16″ gap is common, and many install with an actual nickel as the spacer, which is rightfully referred to as a Nickel Gap Shiplap. The KB914 and KB915 Shiplap profiles can be installed vertically or horizontally on walls. It’s also reversible, smooth on one side and rough sawn on the other offering a wide variety of options to highlight your work.
When installing ShipLap material, make sure to acclimate the boards to the environment before install. Exterior in-use moisture content should be approximately 14% and interior in-use moisture content should be approximately 8%.

As many of you know, Kuiken Brothers has been a big fan of the complete line of WindsorOne trim boards (in fact, this is the only primed pine trim board that we stock at our locations, so if you order “primed pine” you know that we are always going to deliver a quality product. We have found that not everyone is aware that these boards are actually protected to prevent all of the inherent issues with an exposes piece of wood. This protection process is known as WindsorONE+ TRU-CORE Protection. Below are some of the facts about the process, and when installed properly, we are certain that you will see that these boards withstand the test of time.
WindsorONE+ TRU-CORE® Protected trim does not require preservative end re-treatment in the field, while LOSP treated wood requires end preservative re-treatment in the field.
Actives Delivered Deep into the Core
- The Tru-Core penetration technology takes five EPA registered decay and insect control preservatives and transports them to the core of the board, binding them to the wood fibers.
Tru-Core Penetrates Heartwood
- Tru-Core fully penetrates the heartwood of the board (unlike other outdated technologies). Heartwood typically makes up 30% of a board.
WindsorONE+Protected Trim & Pattern Boards feature a Gold IAQ rating which makes it suitable for interior use. Other generic trim boards may feature an outdated treatment done overseas to try to reduce expenses, resulting in off gassing of solvents, raising concerns for interior use safety and environmental protection.
