Cedar nickel gap siding is a very popular siding style where the space between the top and bottom board has a thin gap basically the thickness of a nickel (which is where the profile gets its name). Once installed the thin gap creates a unique shadow line that gives the home a smooth modern look. Nickel gap siding can be achieved using a tongue and groove product that has been profiled properly at the mill or with a traditional exterior shiplap profile. The tongue and groove nickel gap material has a smooth face for a clean flat panel look when installed. As an option, a no-gap tongue and groove version is available upon request.
Cedar Wood Grades Available
Grades for Western Red Cedar come directly from the WRCLA Western Red Cedar Siding Grades. All of our products will be Select Knotty or STK (also known as a select tight knot) grade and is the most readily grade available. The material will have sound tight knots visible and all materials are graded on the rough side. Higher grades may be available, please call us for options.
Products are available with a natural translucent stain, semi-transparent or semi-solid stain, primed only, or primed plus top-coat using a solid color finish. Our pre-finishing process will seal each board against moisture and protect the wood from harmful UV rays. When prefinished, there are no runs, drips or shrink lines, and the finish is applied to all six sides of the material (face, back, edges, and ends). Custom colors are available - call us for details.
