Natural Wood Siding Tips, Tricks and Information

Though tongue and groove is our most common pattern, we also can provide bevels, lap sidings (channel, shiplap) board and batten or any specialty pattern you require.  We have a reasonably large stock of sidings at our facility and can special mill items that we do not have on hand. 

One handy aspect of working with Bear Creek Lumber is that if you do not have room at your job site we can arrange to have your material pre-primed, painted or stained prior to shipping out. This process does require additional lead time, so it is best to order your materials with plenty of advanced lead time so that the construction crew is not held up waiting on materials. 

If you plan on staining or painting your products on the job site it is important to know if the products you are receiving are going to arrive to your jobsite are unseasoned/green or seasoned/dry.  Many of the siding products we sell are going to be kiln dried during the manufacturing process, but some of them are not.  If you purchase a green product and plan to stain on the job site, you will want to get the material to your site early enough to sticker and dry the material before applying any stains or paints to the siding.

Please be aware that our wood siding products are generally sold on a random length basis.  Bevels and tongue and groove patterns can often come in 3′-16′ length tallies, while lap sidings and board and batten are likely to come in 6′-16′ lengths.  Specified lengths can be provided in some instances, but it may create a premium pricing structure if the lengths you need are 12′ or longer.
