WFP Cedar Bevel Siding for residential or commercial applications

Western Red Cedar bevel siding is the most widely used type of siding. 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. It is installed horizontally and gives an attractive shadow line which varies with the thickness selected.

Bevel siding is available in clear and knotty grades. Clear siding gives premium quality appearance and is ideal for prestigious, upscale applications. Knotty siding has warmth and casual charm and is ideal for homes, cottages, club houses and applications where a rustic appearance is desired.
WFP Cedar also distributes finger-joined bevel siding in clear and knotty grades. The precision-fitted joins are virtually invisible and stronger than the surrounding fiber. Finger-joined bevel siding is available in lengths up to 16 feet and provides the handsome appearance and all-weather performance of premium cedar siding. Builders appreciate both the convenient long length tally and the speed and ease of installation with fewer field joins.

Painting cedar siding

I live in a VERY old house with balloon framing etc. The house was restored in 1970 and they replaced the old siding with California redwood lap siding. I bought the house two years ago with a nice new paint job and now the paint is peeling off in football sized chunks exposing the raw wood (primer and two coats coming off together). I am going to scrape and prime and repaint but I want to know how to repaint so it won't peel off in two years?
What might cause the paint to do this?
Any products for cedar or redwood that adhere better?
All of the paint is peeling not just the sunny side of the house

  • Avatar kedar Replacing siding on old house with no sheathing, what to do?
    Sep 15, 2008 by kedar | Posted in Decorating & Remodeling

    I'm replacing siding and insulating 1850 home. There is no sheathing. If I add 3/8" ply, then siding will be proud of corners and casings. Trim is elaborate and ornate so not replacing. (using 1/2" x 6" clear cedar bevel siding and since no sheathing, insulation can be fiberglass) Any recommendations?
