Western Red Cedar Bevel Siding

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.

Bevels - In Application

Bevel siding is a type of siding that is tapered or beveled so that its upper edge is thinner than its lower and lapped in laying to cover the horizontal joint between adjoining pieces.

This type of siding allows the panels to protect the joints from water intrusion and extra wear. One of the reasons it’s so popular is that it’s easy to install, is long lasting, and looks beautiful.

When it has a square butt end, it is traditionally known as Clapboard Siding. Bevel Siding with a notched butt end is known as “Dolly Varden” or Rabbeted Bevel.
