Clapboard Western Red Cedar Siding
Western Red Cedar bevel siding (Clapboard) is the most widely-used siding type throughout New England and beyond. It is manufactured by re-sawing the cedar lumber at an angle to produce two pieces thicker on one edge than the other.
Clapboard is milled in a variety of clear and knotty grades. At Boston Cedar, we stock the highest quality grade available: Clear Heart Vertical Grain grade.
Clear Heart Vertical Grain grade has a smooth face of decay-resistant heartwood and is free from growth characteristics that affect appearance or performance. It has outstanding dimensional stability and its very tight grain readily accepts and delivers tenacious adhesion for a variety of finishes.
