Yellow Cedar Interior Paneling
Interior designers love using Yellow Cedar paneling for both walls and ceilings. It has a nice, light toned, natural look and is easy to work with. The colors in this lumber coordinate well with many design styles and can provide accents, or blend in with the rest of the room.
Yellow Cedar interior paneling (AYC) is produced from medium size Alaskan Yellow Cedar trees, which has a thin bark. It is slow growing with high disease and decay resistance, as well as oils that make it very aromatic. This cedar species grows from Alaska south to Oregon with the largest areas of growth in British Columbia and SE Alaska.
After you choose Yellow Cedar for your interior paneling, you will then need to determine which pattern you would like to use to accentuate your choice. The most common pattern that we see for interior use is going to be a V-Joint pattern. Other common patterns we often see are going to be center match or nickel gap.
Most commonly with interior paneling the products supplied are going to be supplied with a smooth texture, but a resawn texture can be provided if a customer is looking for more of a rustic appeal. We can offer interior paneling in 1/2″, 5/8″, 11/16″ and 3/4″ net sizes and 3″, 4″, 6″ & 8″ nominal widths. Other sizes can be developed through our specialty milling process if required.
Most of our softwood paneling options are going to be available in both clear and knotty grades, while our hardwood options are generally only available in clear grades. Clear products give a finer appearance and work well in modern and upscale projects. Knotty materials will give the walls more character and a bit of a rustic appeal. Knotty materials are going to be more economical than clear, generally being about half the overall cost.
