If you can dream it up or need to match up a wood pattern that is no longer made, we work with a team of skilled mills that can help you achieve the custom pattern you desire or need in Western Red Cedar, Alaskan Yellow Cedar, Douglas Fir and just about any other hard or softwood. From exterior siding and cladding patterns to interior or exterior paneling, to airfoils and louvers, truly dimensional lumber…and everything else in between!
Historical Wood Patterns
As the decades have passed, trends, as well as manufacturing practices, have come and gone in building materials. When the time comes for restoring or repairing wood in vintage or historical buildings, it can often be difficult to find truly dimensional lumber and/or match old wood patterns.
Whether it be exterior siding patterns, interior wall or decking patterns that need to be matched up, we can help! The best place to start is to get us a sample of the pattern that needs to be matched, such as this double tongue and groove that measures 3-1/2” x 5-1/2” that was manufactured from clear Western Red Cedar well over 100 years ago. By carefully inspecting and measuring this sample, we were able to have this double tongue and groove timber created to the exact specifications of the piece that was provided for the historical restoration after a recent fire.
New Wood Patterns
With the current trend in custom building and remodeling including so much exterior and interior paneling for accent walls and ceilings, as well as lining closets and bathrooms; if there is a specific wood pattern your architect has dreamed up that hasn’t been done before, we can help! Since it hasn’t been produced before, a line drawing is created before production with the exact measurements noted and a recommendation of what grade and species of wood would work best for the application will be discussed.
Note in this pattern that a special bevel is added to the profile to drain water away since this T&G will be used outdoors as cladding. For optimum performance, we recommended that this pattern be manufactured out of clear Western Red Cedar.
Another new trend we are seeing quite a lot of in commercial building, as well as residential, is the use of wood louvers. Naturally beautiful with the look that only real wood can provide. Whether it be boards cut to specific dimensions or shaped into airfoils, such as this one, we work with mills that specialize in creating the perfectly sized and shaped louvers for your project in Western Red Cedar, Alaskan Yellow Cedar, Douglas Fir or most any other soft or hardwood desired.
To save money and time on the job, we can arrange to have your specialty wood pattern pre-primed or stained in most any color imaginable!
