After your purchase of high-end cedar siding from Lumber Out West it is important to properly install your investment. Improperly installed siding will not be warrantied for any possible claims in the future. The most commonly made mistake by homeowners is over-nailing their siding during installation.
Spacing for the siding should be laid out beforehand. The number of board spaces between the soffit and bottom of the lowest piece of siding at the foundation should be such that the overlap is as per the table.
Start with the bottom course using a furring strip to support the lower edge. Each succeeding course overlaps the upper edge of the previous one by a minimum of 1 inch. Rabbeted patterns are self-spacing, but leave 1/8 inch expansion clearance. Where possible, the bottom of the board that is placed across the top of the windows should coincide with the window cap.

Remember, when buying cedar siding, or redwood siding for that matter, be careful about discounted wood products. What this means is that the siding has been sitting around the lumber yard for some time and the lumber company is simply trying to dump old inventory. Siding is meant to be used in a timely fashion from the time it gets milled to installation. The longer the siding sits before installation the more cupping, bowing and checking will occur. Another trick lumber companies use to sell inferior products is they go through the siding and separate out all the high-end material and sell it as a separate, more expensive siding. They then sell the leftover siding at a “discount” but this really means the siding is being sold at market value. Lumber Out West only sells the highest quality western red cedar.

Pre-staining your log siding is a great way to also save time and money on your home improvement project. Pre-stained log siding can be done by choosing a quality stain such as Superdeck Stain. This will help insure a lasting finish for years to come before a reapplication is needed. Be sure to ask whether pre-staining is an option in your area before ordering.
