Cypress wood siding is not only versatile but very durable as a siding material. The tongue and groove (also known as T&G) siding profile provides a unique look for a true custom home. This siding style can be installed horizontally or vertically and can be milled with a V design, square edge or a custom nickel gap profile. With the tongue and groove design, each board has a tongue milled on one edge of each board and a groove milled on the other edge. The boards fit together to seal out rain, snow and other natural elements from getting inside the structure. Cypress wood contains a natural preservative oil called cypressene which makes the wood rot and termite resistant. Cypress is dimensionally stable (after acclimation) and naturally resistant to splitting and warping making it perfect for use on external home applications such as siding and trim. This profile can be used for porch ceilings as well and is available in smooth or rough sawn texture.
Cypress Wood Grades Available
Many of our products are available in Select (highest grade possible) or #2 Common Grade - sound and possible unsound knots are acceptable.
The most popular size material for tongue and groove is 1" x 6" (Nominal size) but a 1" x 8" (Nominal size) may be available as well. Please contact our sales department for availability.
Cypress tongue and groove siding color options can be seen below in over 45+ stain colors including a whitewashed version (White Stain) all the way up to Ebony (an almost black stain). If you prefer primed we have that as well so a solid color topcoat can be applied in the field. As a third option we can prime and apply one factory finished top-coated in a solid color so the final coat can be applied in the field after installation. Our pre-finishing process will seal each board against moisture and protect the wood from harmful UV rays. When factory finished, 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.
