Cedar Tongue and Groove Siding

Cedar Tongue & Groove is very popular as it provides a unique, clean look that you can have installed horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. Tongue & groove siding is available with a rough or a smooth face and is best when kiln-dried for better paint adhesion and overall performance. The joints between each board are typically v-shaped, but custom profiles can be created in which the joint is flush or cut with a nickel gap which will give a unique shadow line where the two boards meet.

Grades Available:

Our standard grade is select knotty (or STK grade), where knots are sound and tight.

Finishes Available:

Cedar tongue and groove siding can be pre-finished in various colors and products. A wood toner will allow the natural wood grain to show but will have a natural tint to the wood (depending on product color). If you're looking for a bit more UV protection, a semi-transparent stain is a good choice, and you will still see some of the wood's natural grain. A semi-solid or solid color stain is a good option if you're looking for a more consistent solid color with less wood grain showing through the finish. All wood siding profiles are available with a primer-only coating option so you can have the topcoat applied in the field after installation. We can do almost any color you can imagine. If you don't find a color you love out of our 40+ stain color options, please give us a call - custom colors are available.

Benefits to pre-finishing natural wood siding:

  • Instant Curb Appeal - As the siding is installed, the house comes to life as the final color has already been applied.
  • No Weather Delays - No weather delays due to poor weather conditions prohibiting a painter from applying the final color coat.
  • Pre-Finishing is available year-round - Our facility is climate controlled, and machines run all 12 months.
  • Instant UV and Moisture Protection
  • No Lap Marks
  • No Streaking
  • No Shrink Lines
  • No Overspray, No Drips, and No Runs
  • Cost Savings vs. Field Painting
  • Six-Sided Protection - our process allows us to apply a finish to all six sides of the wood, which is the best way to protect natural wood from UV and moisture issues.
  • Factory Controlled Quality - Each board will have a consistent finish from one end to the other and from the first piece to the last.
  • Material is dry before installation.
