FSC® Certified Western Red Cedar Siding

AltruWood’s AltruCedar siding is FSC® certified western red cedar Western Red Cedar from British Columbia. It comes in a variety of sizes, grades, and patterns making it perfect for most siding applications. Our 5-step cedar purchasing guidelines below spell out the variety of profiles, grades, and cuts available. Our bevel siding is a classic profile, often seen on traditional American colonial style homes and is available in both a knotty and clear grade Western Red Cedar. Other WRC siding profiles are board and batten which is used on everything from backyard sheds, to fencing, to indoor paneling, to log cabins. It is characterized by wide panels alternated with a thinner strip of material in between, aka the “batten”. Another popular and stylish profile is our tongue and groove cedar siding. This profile in a clear grade can offer a more contemporary clean look and feel. Tight vertical grain tongue and groove cedar siding is the highest quality siding and offers the best protection from the elements. It is often found in many contemporary and traditional designs in a rough or smooth surface finish, as depicted in photos of the house shown in our cedar portfolio.

Western red cedar is known for its rich, reddish hues that can vary from amber to chocolate brown. We source and grade our Western Red Cedar from the highest quality Canadian fiber resulting in a better longer lasting product. This in turn allows our customers to receive the highest desired performance and appearance from their cedar siding and trim. Depending on the finish, specifying color can be just as important as specifying the grade and pattern. For a San Francisco project we supplied, the architect used a “driftwood” stain to create a sun-bleached look to the cedar.

But it's really a matter of personal taste. I hate the way the vinyl sided houses in my neighborhood look. my neighbors are finally, slowly starting to remove the siding and go back to wood.
one option is to remove the wood siding entirely and reside. For something that's going to last longer with less maintenance [and it'll depend somewhat on the style of house and the neighborhood], i'm a big fan of natural cedar siding, allowing it to weather naturally. i like the way it looks, and it doesn't require the maintenance that paint does. But a good paint job, done correctly, should last at least 6 years

  • 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?

    • The following page on exterior sheathing choices may be helpful:

  • Avatar Mike K Where can I find siding that will match my 1942 cedar lap siding?
    Jul 01, 2007 by Mike K | Posted in Do It Yourself (DIY)

    I walled off a window in my kitchen yesterday and need to match the siding on my house. The existing siding is 10"x3/4" cedar lap siding. The common widths currently available are 12" and 8". The existing siding is in good shape and I don't want to reside the whole house. Any ideas?

    • Two ideas. One, take the 12" clapboards and cut the butt ends down to match the profile of your existing boards (sand them to round them off to the originals profile), then cut down the skinny end to match the height. Two: Does your garage have the same siding...like on the back or the side facing the neighbors place?
