Wood Choices

Western Red Cedar
Natural cedar is an excellent choice for Northwest homes. Cedar offers a timeless compliment to any architectural style from traditional to contemporary. We sell three grades of Western Red Cedar:


Western Red Cedar Clear Vertical Grain
Clear Board that is usually free of knots. Some lower grades of clear lumber will have minimal knots.

Western Red Cedar Shingles
“A” Grade A grading classification which refers to boards that are of a mixed grain, i.e. includes both flat and vertical grain.

Western Red Cedar Tight Knot
Tight Knot Knots are a portion of a branch or limb that has been incorporated into a board. A Tight Knot is a knot so fixed by growth, shape or position that it retains its place in the board.

Bevel Siding side view
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.

Tongue and Groove

Tongue and Groove is a type of siding in which a projecting rib on the edge of one board fits into a groove in the edge of an adjacent board. Tongue and Groove is commonly used for siding and ceilings.

Installing Tongue & Groove Siding

Tongue and groove siding can be installed vertically and horizontally. Installing horizontally, NW Siding & Windows siding installers will start at the bottom of the home, with the groove edges facing downwards, and work our way up. In vertical installation, NW Siding & Windows siding installers will start the installation at one corner of the wall, with the groove edges toward the adjacent wall. In both, vertical and horizontal installation, siding boards up to 6″ wide will be blind nailed.
