Knotty Western Red Cedar Bevel Siding

Budget friendly and naturally beautiful, bevel siding is the most widely-used Western Red Cedar siding profiles. It is produced by re-sawing lumber at an angle to produce two pieces thicker on one edge than the other.

Knotty Western Red Cedar bevel siding has a rustic and warm appeal that is the less expensive than clear grades.  When properly finished and maintained, your knotty Cedar bevel siding will perform admirably for many years.

At Cedar Country, we only supply knotty beveled siding that is has sound and tight knots, such as the siding used on the newly remodeled Railroad Pub and Pizza.  Prior to installation, we had the knotty bevel siding for the Railroad Pub and Pizza factory flood coated with a high-quality penetrating oil.   This not only saves money and time on the job site, it also helps to protect your siding before and during installation.

Half Moon Bay Project using our custom milled Clear, VG Cedar

This jaw dropping project in Half Moon Bay, CA is about one month away from completion. It took 12 years to get the building permit.

Custom milled clear, vertical grain Western Red Cedar specialty building materials we supplied for a project in Half Moon Bay, Ca include exterior cladding and fencing

Custom homes built in Half Moon Bay using our specialty milled Western Red Cedar products

It was our pleasure to travel down to visit this project and meet with our client, Dave O’keefe of O’keefe Construction based out of San Francisco, after working on this project with him for almost a year.  Each building is unique in its design, but similar enough to create a cohesive look on the property.  One unit will be used as a vacation home for Dave and his family, while the other houses a small retail space on the ground floor, with residential living space above that will likely be rented out on Air B&B.

Custom milled Cedar siding on a unique build in the Bay area of California

Due to the unique nature of our business and the relationships we have developed with mills throughout the Pacific Northwest, we were able to match the architect’s spec for the custom milled clear, vertical grain, 1×6” Western Red Cedar “nickel gap” tongue and groove he was looking for to complete the exterior cladding.

The fence around the property was constructed using 5 foot 1×6” clear, vertical grain Western Red Cedar boards.  Not only did sourcing 5’ material save Dave money on the material and shipping, it also helped keep the boards super straight between the powder coated aluminum posts.  A real win, win!

Half Moon Bay Custom Home

Hot in the building market right now, Clear Western Red Cedar T&G for both interiors and exteriors!  Check out this stunning unique, contemporary home being built in the bay area of California.  We worked closely with the builder to ensure the specs of the siding were an exact match to the architect’s design.

After we milled the 1×6 clear, vertical grain Western Red Cedar Fine Line Tongue and Groove to the specified pattern, we had a factory flood coat of Penofin Red Label “Cedar” penetrating oil applied to the T&G siding.  Coated on all four sides and dried in a temperature controlled environment, the quality of finish that is achieved by this process just can’t be duplicated on the job site.  No waiting for perfect weather!

Custom Milled Clear, Vertical Grain Alaska Yellow Cedar

Prized for both interior and exterior use due to its pale yellow color, work ability and longevity, Alaska Yellow Cedar was the chosen wood for this unique, modern home on Fidalgo Island in Washington state.  

custom milled 1x6 Clear Vertical Grain Yellow Cedar Cladding

Designed by local architect, Brooks Middleton, whom we have had the pleasure to work with on several local projects, called for clear, vertical grain Yellow Cedar (also known as Alaska Cypress and Pacific Coast Cypress) for accent walls inside the home, as well as for some of the exterior cladding.  Since what he was looking for was not an “off the shelf” product, we worked with our mill to manufacture the custom spec’d 6″ clear vertical grain (also referred to as VG) Yellow Cedar for the exterior siding, as well as the 8″ clear VG Yellow Cedar for the interior of the home.

Clear, vertical grain is highest grade of Cedar, and as you might guess, the most expensive.   The wood is sawn specifically so that all the growth rings are parallel to each other on the face of the board.  All pieces milled will have a smooth face of decay-resistant heartwood and will be free from most growth characteristics that affect appearance. Please note, that even in all the clear grades, including VG, some knots may be present, as well as other less-than-perfect characteristics.  Every tree, as well as every piece of lumber, will have natural individual characteristics, including variance in color.

Clear Alaska Yellow Cedar custom milled for Interior Use

When installing any natural wood product, regardless of grade, the trick is to install the best pieces in the areas with the highest visibility and always allow for some waste, especially in lower grades of clear and knotty Cedar products.

Trending Now – Natural Exterior Wood Cladding

Whether it is new construction or updating the look of a commercial or residential building, using natural wood siding to add a more modern look and feel is gaining popularity.  With so many options in Western Red Cedar, Alaskan Yellow Cedar and other domestic hard and softwoods, the possibilities are endless to create a more natural, welcoming appearance for any building with wood cladding.

A true example of crafted modernism, this rustic home located in eastern Washington is cladded with a mix of our knotty Western Red Cedar and metal, along with concrete and steel elements to create an appealing façade that blends in with the natural surroundings, as well as help to protect the home against wild fires.  See more of photos of this project by visiting the builder’s website, Impel Construction.

When paired with a medium or dark color, natural wood siding instantly modernizes an existing building.  In these photos, our friends at La Conner Dental replaced portions of the existing siding on their commercial building with our 1×4” clear Western Red Cedar tongue and groove paneling to create an upscale, yet charming exterior.

Used to accentuate this the front porch and entry, our clear, vertical grain engineered veneer Western Red Cedar T&G extends a warm welcome to the homeowners and guests alike.
