We just had white pine shiplap installed on the wall containing a gas fireplace. We are not sure if we should stain it or paint it.
Before it was installed, we had the shiplap in the house for about 6 days.
If we stain it, what do you recommend for products and process?
If we paint it, what do you recommend for products and process?
Thank you!!!!!!


Do not paint it. Use a good quality latex interior stain like Life Line Interior. Call 800-564-2987 for help and to purchase.
