A versatile siding, it can be installed vertically, horizontally or diagonally. In channel siding the profile of each board partially overlaps that of the board next to it creating a channel that gives shadow line effects, provides excellent weather protection and allows for dimensional movement. Channel siding is normally supplied in unseasoned knotty grades. The face side is saw textured. Commonly available sizes are 1 x 6 in.,1 x 8 in. and 1 x 10 in. Clear grades are manufactured to order.

Western Red Cedar bevel siding is the most widely used cedar 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. Bevel siding is installed horizontally and gives an attractive shadow line which varies with the thickness of siding selected.
Bevel siding is available in clear and knotty grades. Clear siding gives premium quality appearance and is ideal for prestigious, upmarket applications. Knotty siding has warmth and casual charm and is ideal for homes, cottages, club-houses and applications where a rustic appearance is desired.
WRCLA members also produce finger-joined bevel siding in clear and knotty grades. The precision-fitted joints are virtually invisible and stronger than the surrounding fiber. Finger-joined bevel siding is available in lengths up to 16 feet and provides the handsome appearance and all-weather performance of premium cedar siding. Builders appreciate both the convenient long length tally and the speed and ease of installation with fewer field joints.

Clear Vertical Grain Heart
This is the highest bevel siding grade. All Clear V.G. Heart grade is sawn vertical grain (edge grain) and is kiln-dried. Pieces have a smooth face of decay-resistant heartwood and are free from growth characteristics that affect appearance or performance. Pieces have excellent dimensional stability and hold finishes exceptionally well.
This is a fine appearance grade that allows only slightly more growth characteristics than Clear Heart. Pieces are of mixed grain. These mixed grain (vertical and flat) pieces are graded from the surfaced face. Typically sold with a percentage of B grade.
Rustic grade bevel siding is recommended
for use as sidewall covering where the distinctive charm of a rustic saw textured appearance is desired. This grade allows limited characteristics that do not detract from serviceability.
This product is intended to be fully usable with the resawn face exposed to after trimming to fit the stud wall spacing. Contains no open characteristics or through defects. The product allows the use of adhesives on the reverse face to secure knots. Architect Knotty is particularly well suited for factory priming or finishing. Supplied kiln-dried.
Tongue & Groove
Western Red Cedar tongue and groove is widely used for its good looks and versatility. It can be installed horizontally, vertically or diagonally, each method giving a distinctly different look.Tongue and groove siding is available with rough or smooth faces. Both seasoned (kiln-dried) and unseasoned (green) sidings are available.
The joints between adjoining pieces are usually v-shaped or flush jointed, reveal and radius joints are also available.The different joints and surface textures in tongue and groove siding combine to provide a range of shadow line effects that enhance the product’s versatility.

Board & Batten Siding
Board-and-batten is a vertical design created using wide clear or knotty cedar boards spaced apart with narrower boards (battens) covering the joins. There are no set board or batten widths – various combinations are used to create different looks suitable for large or small scale applications. A frequent combination is 1 x 3 in. battens and 1 x 10 in. boards. This can also be reversed with boards installed over battens to create a deep channel effect. Rough sawn, unseasoned boards or boards surfaced on one side and two edges (S1S2E) are commonly used for board-and-batten siding. Sizes are from 1 x 2 in. to 1 x 12 in.
