FAQs

What makes the Great American Spaces Smooth Collection better than our competitors?

  • Smooth Pine ShipLap is Ponderosa Pine # 3 grade, which allows some of the “imperfections” or the rustic characteristics on the board that is desired by end-users today to show through. It is primed and can be painted or left with just the prime coat.
  • Smooth MDF is made from high quality medium density fiberboard and is precision milled so that it can be a reversible product. It is double sanded and has two coats of primer. Smooth MDF can be installed with either the classic nickel gap or v-groove facing outward.
  • All finishes are eco-friendly using a safe, water-based finish and require low-to-no maintenance.
  • It is proudly made in the USA in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
