The exterior finish of a home is the face it presents to the world; it defines the mood and character of the structure and reflects the image desired by its designers, builders and owners. One comprehensive line is Weyerhaeuser's CedarOne® siding and trim products made from western red cedar. The elegant texture and fine grain of CedarOne® siding and trim can enhance the value of a home's exterior, improve curb appeal and offer substantial protection from the elements.
CedarOne® siding comes in a wide variety of grades, designs, sizes and textures - something for every home's architectural style.
CedarOne® siding has a cedar grade to suit every application including:
- Premium Clear - Many designers' choice as the finest appearance siding product. Free of knots to meet the highest standards for prestigious homes and building projects.
- Performance Clear - Specifically manufactured to give a clear appearance while permitting limited knots which do not detract from the overall appearance of the product.
- Premium Knotty - Manufactured to provide the best characteristics of a rustic knotty appearance. This siding is produced with a saw-textured face and surfaced edges.
In addition to the various grades, CedarOne® siding comes in a variety of siding styles as well. The most widely used cedar siding type is bevel siding. It is produced by resawing lumber at an angle to produce two pieces, each with one edge thicker than the other. The resawing results in one face saw textured, while the other face is smooth. Bevel siding is installed horizontally and gives an attractive shadow line, which varies with the thickness of siding selected.
Another popular choice is board-and-batten siding, a vertical design created using wide clear or knotty cedar boards spaced apart with narrower "batten" covering the joints. There is no set board or batten width as various combinations are used to create different looks suitable for large- and small-scale applications. Additionally, tongue-and-groove siding is usually manufactured in clear grades suitable for more formal, elegant appearances, especially when pieces are smooth-faced.
All-natural western red cedar CedarOne® products have long been revered for an aesthetic appeal and natural resistance against insect attack, decay, warping, cupping and twisting when properly installed and maintained. Better yet, CedarOne® siding improves insulation of homes and buildings and serves as an excellent base for all type of paints and stains.
No substitute product has been able to fully capture the look and feel of genuine western red cedar. Fads will come and go, yet when you closely examine the options, you discover there is still much in favor of sticking with a classic such as cedar, a building material with centuries of proven performance.
