Rabbeted bevel siding is a variation of bevel siding (also known as clapboard siding) in which a rectangular groove (rabbet) is cut at the thick butt edge of each board. This rabbet allows the top board to overlap the board below (only used on horizontal applications) to create a seal against moisture and other environmental factors.
STK grade (also known as select tight knot) is the most readily grade available. The material will have sound tight knots visible and is graded on the rough side. The band sawn face gives this product a warm and rustic appearance.
As with any type of natural wood siding, the best way to protect the wood and your investment is to have it stained, primed or painted on all six sides to protect the wood from moisture and harmful UV rays. Our 42,000 square facility is designed to apply almost any color stain, or solid color paint you can imagine to the material before it arrives at your job site.
