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.
Western Red Cedar bevel siding is 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. The manufacturing process results in pieces with one face saw textured. The other face is smooth or saw textured depending on the grade and customer preference. Bevel siding is installed horizontally and gives an attractive shadow line which varies with the thickness of siding selected.
