New York state and Cedar Siding

Homeowners and contractors looking for quality cedar siding in New York are at a disadvantage over their peers on the west coast.  This is because they either have to purchase northern white cedar which is native to the area and of far less quality than western red cedar or pay to have the better western red cedar shipped to their location.  But, if one is looking to have a product that will look great and last for years to come the one option is to bite the bullet and pay the extra freight cost for the western red cedar.

Cedar Siding and Wood Siding

Cedar is the much preferred choice of homebuilders over other types of construction materials.  Cedar siding is resistant to insects and fares better over time in inclement weather.  Once properly pre-stained, cedar will maintain its look for years and only needs a fresh coat of stain every 3-5 years, depending on the stain.  When quality is your main concern, Lumber Out West will only sell the best cedar siding available on the market.  No shortcuts are taken to make an extra buck.

Cedar Siding Profiles

Western Red Cedar siding can be milled into a variety of profiles to suit just about anyone’s taste.   The common patterns are beveled, both plain and rabbeted, tongue & groove, shiplap and covelap.  Typically, the thickness of any milled siding product is approximately 11/16″ unless it is a beveled pattern.  Bevels range from 1/2″ thick to 1″.  One thing to remember, the wider the board the more problems will occur because of the width.  The best way to avoid problems is to stick with either a 6″ or 8″ wide board.  Anything wider and there will be an occurance of occasional cupping and warping.
