TYPES OF WOOD SIDING
Tongue & Groove (T&G)
Western Red Cedar T&G is widely used for its versatility and appearance. It can be installed horizontally, vertically, or diagonally – each method giving a distinctly different look. T&G siding is available with rough or smooth faces. Both seasoned (kiln-dried) and unseasoned (green) sidings are available.
The joints between adjoining pieces are usually v-shaped but flush jointed, reveal and radius joints are also available. The different joints and surface textures in T&G siding combine to provide a range of shadow line effects that enhance the product’s versatility.
Lap sidings are normally supplied in a variety of patterns either green (unseasoned) or dry in clear or knotty grades and with a smooth or saw textured face.
Channel siding is a popular type of lap siding and is used whenever a rustic appearance is desired. A versatile siding, it can be installed vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. In channel siding, the profile of each board partially overlaps that of the board next to it creating a channel that gives shadow line effects, provides excellent weather protection, and allows for dimensional movement.
Bevel siding is available in clear and knotty grades. Clear siding gives premium quality appearance while knotty siding has warmth and casual charm.
Finger-Joined Bevel Siding
These precision-fitted joins are virtually invisible and stronger than the surrounding fiber. Finger-joined bevel siding is available in lengths up to 16 feet and provides the handsome appearance and all-weather performance of premium cedar siding. Builders appreciate both the convenient long length tally and the speed and ease of installation with fewer field joins.
Board & Batten
Board & batten is a vertical design created using wide clear or knotty cedar boards spaced apart with narrower boards (battens) covering the joins. There are no set board or batten widths – various combinations are used to create different looks suitable for large or small scale applications. A frequent combination is 1″x 3″ battens and 1″x 10″ boards. This can also be reversed with boards installed over battens to create a deep channel effect.
