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.

Heartwood redwood typically has been sold in lumber yards and has given redwood an outstanding reputation amongst builders for both interior and exterior applications.
Unfortunately, almost all of the big box stores and a number of our competitors carry a number of sapwood redwood products at their locations. Easily distinguishable by it’s white color, sapwood (especially in wet weather) can begin to rot out or be attacked by pests in as quickly as five or six months.
