Clapboard Bevel Siding Prices

Bevel Lap siding is manufactured by resawing lumber at an angle to produce two pieces thicker on one edge than the other - sometimes called clapboard siding, with a thick butt and a thin upper edge lapped to shed water. The bevel edge gives an attractive shadow line. Both faces are saw textured. The minimum board overlap at installation is 1 inch. Clapboard is recommended for horizontal applications only.

American ingenuity made a new use for clapboard - which was originally used for barrels. The American settler's timber framed homes did not provide enough protection from their fierce New England winters. For extra insulation the colonists nailed clapboard on the outside walls. This was so successful that clapboard siding or bevel style siding as it is now called has remained in use to the present day.

Three main bevel siding thickness are usually available - thin 15/32" (1/2") bevel, standard 11/16" and thick bevel 7/8 - 1" (referred to as Bungalow, Colonial or Thick Butt Bevel siding). Note that all three - thin, standard, thick - are sold as a nominal 1" board. Be careful to confirm when you are pricing your redwood or cedar bevel siding which thickness you are being quoted.

The Dolly Varden pattern is a special mill pattern that includes a 1/2 - 3/4" cut in the thicker butt end of the board. This rabbeted edge allows the bevel siding panels to fit together in such a way as to protect joints from water infiltration. The Dolly Varden rabbeted bevel pattern installs easily while provding the traditional bevel style and appearance. Beveled siding normally has a rough saw-textured surface which more fully absorbs the stain or paint finish. However, smooth surfacing is available upon request.

Beval wood siding has a rustic warmth that is ideal for homes, cottages, and cabins. You will appreciate both the beauty of our bevel clapboard siding as well as the ease of installation.

10"9 1/4"8 3/4"1.37
* assuming 3/8" overlap, allow 1/8" gap

* Lineal Foot Factor is derived by dividing 12” by the exposed face

Bevel example 1: If you are siding four walls 8 feet high by 40 feet long with 1x6" beval boards and we allow 10% of the total square feet for openings, you would need approximately 3100-3400 linear feet:

SQFT AREA: 4 * 8 * 40 = 1280 SQ FT - 128 (10% openings) + 115 (10% trim/waste) = 1267 SQ FT

THIN BEVEL: = 1267 SQ FT * 2.4 linear factor = 3041 LFT

THICK BEVEL: = 1267 SQ FT * 2.67 linear factor = 3383 LFT

Dolly Varden: = 1267 SQ FT * 2.40 linear factor = 3041 LFT

Bevel example 2: If you side the same area with 1x8" beval boards, you would need approximately 2300-2500 linear feet:

THIN BEVEL: not available in 1x8"

THICK BEVEL: 1267 SQ FT * 1.92 linear factor = 2432.6 LFT

DOLLY VARDEN: 1267 SQ FT * 1.77 linear factor = 2242.6 LFT
