Western Red Cedar Siding Profiles

Bevel

The most widely-used siding type. It is produced by resawing lumber at an angle to produce two pieces thicker on one edge than the other.

Board & Batten

A popular vertical design created using wide clear or knotty cedar boards spaced apart with narrower boards (battens) covering the joins.

Tongue & Groove

Widely used for its good looks and versatility, T&G can be installed horizontally, vertically or diagonally, each method giving a distinctly different look.

Lap or Channel

Channel siding is a popular type of lap siding that can be installed vertically, horizontally or diagonally, providing excellent weather protection and allows for dimensional movement.

Trim Boards

Western Red Cedar trim boards provide the finishing touches for any siding project. Available in a variety of grades and textures to complement that style you have envisioned.

Shingle Panels

Real Cedar shingles/cladding are available in a variety of styles, shapes and grades to distinguish your home from others in your neighborhood.
