Western Red cedar has been used as siding for hundreds of years. Its natural resistance to the elements and reliable performance make it the material of choice for all your siding needs. Cedar is highly prized for its warmth, beauty, and performance – you’ll be hard pressed to find another species that’s as sought after. Board and batten siding is unique in that it creates a vertical or horizontal effect using boards spaced apart with narrower boards (battens) covering the joints, creating a wonderful accent for any home. A combination of 1”x3” battens and 1”x12” boards is very common and can be reversed with boards installed over battens to create a deep channel effect.
• Common applications include: exterior or interior siding for the home, cabin and barn – a wonderful accent for any home. • Rough Sawn surface appearance• Material is available in both seasoned (kiln dried) and unseasoned (green). Unseasoned product is recommended for most applications as it is less likely to split and not as brittle or frail as kiln dried material. • Available Board sizes: 1x6, 1x8, 1x10, 1x12 / Available Batten sizes: 1x2, 1x3, 1x4
