Western Red Cedar Tongue and Groove Siding In Application

Western Red Cedar Siding

Western Red Cedar’s dimensional stability and natural decay resistance make it the top choice for siding applications.
This species’ freedom from pitch and resin provide a good base for a range of finishes, from paints, solid color stains to water-repellent preservatives and semi-transparent stains.

Choosing your siding pattern is mostly a matter of personal preference, influenced by the architectural style of your home and its setting. 

We invite you to browse our product galleries below, and to learn about installation tips and finishing suggestions.

*Please note that coverage estimators are generally based on using green/unseasoned materials.  Dry materials may have a narrower net size, so the conversion factors may need to be adjusted based on the product being used.  However, If you use a standard 5%-15% trim and waste factor, you should be covered for some occasional shrinkage*

Western Red Cedar Bevel Siding

Western Red Cedar bevel siding is the most common cedar siding type that is used.  Bevel siding is created by sawing lumber at an angle to produce two pieces of wood that are thicker on one side and thinner on the other. 

Through the manufacturing process, bevel is produced to generally have one side that has a smooth surface and one side that has a resawn surface.  We provide bevel siding in both knotty and clear grades. Clear siding is going to be used more in modern/contemporary homes, while knotty bevel is going to be used in more rustic settings. 

One of the more economical options for Western Red Cedar bevel is to purchase what is called Finger-Joined bevel.  This process includes gluing and joining shorter pieces of lumber to create longer pieces.  The joins are stronger than the surrounding fiber.  Typically this product is going to be pre-primed or painted prior to installation.

All siding options are available in a variety of grades ranging from vertical grain clear to utility. BCL can offer any size of siding you may need.
