Tongue and groove, commonly referred to as T&G, is created by boards that have been manufactured to have one protruding rib (tongue) on one edge and a groove on the other edge, so that the tongue from one board fits into the groove in the next board. When properly installed, the T&G joint is very strong and can withstand the expansion and contraction of the wood as temperatures change.

Care and Maintenance for Shiplap Interior Paneling

Big “Thank You” to our customer Dave for sharing these photos of his new sunroom addition that we supplied the building materials for.  The combination of the painted Shiplap and natural Western Red Cedar T&G on the ceiling give this new space lots of character.  We are also rather fond of the Douglas Fir trim and beautiful privacy fence he built using our 1×4” clear Red Balau Mahogany that can be seen out his new beautiful sunroom windows!

The exterior of the new sun room is clad with our knotty Western Red Cedar beveled siding.  We provided him with pre-primed siding, which saves a big step during construction when it is destined to be painted.

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.

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.

Alaska Yellow Cedar Shingles for Roofing

Grown only in the Pacific Northwest coast areas of Alaska, British Columbia and Washington State, Alaska Yellow Cedar is not a true “cedar” and belongs in the cypress family. This species goes by many common names including: Nootka cypress, yellow cypress, Alaska cypress, Nootka cedar, yellow cedar, Alaska cedar, and Alaska yellow cedar.

Due to the short growing season along the Pacific coast, the growth rings of Yellow Cedar trees are tight, making it heavier, denser and stronger than either Western Red Cedar or White Cedar.  Naturally resistant to rot and decay, Alaska Yellow Cedar shrinks very little over time making it an ideal choice for roofing.

100% Edge Grain Alaska Yellow Cedar Shingles lay flat

We are pleased to offer top grade 18” Alaska Yellow Cedar shingles that are 100% clear heartwood and 100% edge grain.  These are perfect for either sidewall or roofing applications.  100% edge grain shingles and shakes out perform grades that allow flat grain.  This is because of the way the cedar cants are split (or sawn) to achieve a more dimensionally stable product.  Edge grain shingles and shakes will have vertical lines on the exposed face.  When looking at the butt end of an edge grain shingle, you will see the tight annual growth rings perpendicular to the surface.  Edge grain shingles will lay flatter and are less likely to curl or cup.

Whether our Alaska Yellow Cedar shingles are installed as siding or roofing, they are best left to weather naturally and will turn into a uniform silver-gray. The integrity and unique properties of the wood are intact and will perform admirably for years with little maintenance.  These many unique characteristics of Alaska Yellow Cedar makes it a very valuable and sought-after specialty building material by contractors, architects and designers, for both residential and commercial use.

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!
