Western Red Cedar bevel siding is the most widely-used 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.
The term pattern sidings describes a variety of siding products in which the board
has been machined on the edge(s) and face(s) to produce siding with interlocking or
overlapping joints and with smooth surfaced or rough sawn faces. These sidings fall
into two broad groups: tongue & groove or lap.
Lap sidings are supplied in a variety of patterns in clear or knotty grades and with a
smooth or saw textured face.
Board and 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.
