Redwood Siding


Redwood Siding - SAP B NEAR CLEAR Grade - on Timberframe home
REDWOOD Siding Customer - SAP B "NEAR" CLEAR Grade


I think SAP B Redwood is the best value we have in appearance grade sidings. It comes with spectacular visual appeal and can be had with very few knots at a similar cost of knotty cedar.
 
This customer used our Sap B Redwood Siding on his Timber Frame home on the Hudson River in Connecticut. The blend of Heart & Sapwood color contrast set his place apart from everyone in the neighborhood. He used a semi-transparent stain with redwood tint to smooth the contrasting natural sapwood cream color with the heartwood red - Redwood Timberframe home sided with Redwood Sap B grade 1x8 Rabbeted Bevel.

Redwood Siding SAP B Grade - 1x8 Rabbeted Bevel Siding - Smooth Side Use Redwood Siding - Sap B Grade - nearly knot free

Sap B Redwood does not have as much insect and moisture resistance as cedar or heart redwood so you have to be dilligent about your preperation and maintenance to keep it looking beautiful.
 
If you are a wood lover and will commit to taking care of this beautiful redwood siding, it will add value to your home and bring happiness to your heart.


Redwood Siding SAP + HEART Wood Grades


Sap "B" is a quality redwood grade containing more sapwood, limited knots and other characteristics not permitted in All Heart B or Clear grades. Down one grade (and a few dollars per sqft) from CLEAR, Sap B "Near Clear" redwood grade allows a few small knots but preserves the beauty and appearance of this majestic wood.

FACTORY FINISH = PEACE OF MIND
How Much is Your Peace of Mind Worth?


A FACTORY FINISH ensures a lasting, higher quality job than traditional "on site" stain or prime applications. Factory finishing costs about half the amount of field staining. Pre-finishing your cedar siding eliminates the problems of lap marks, shrinklines, streaking, color variation, and job site dirt pick-up.
 
FACT - When you call the first thing the Califronia Redwoood Association will tell you is that 2nd growth redwood siding needs to be sealed on all six sides prior to installation and then re coated as needed on the face for the lifetime of the wood. Their guide outlines the types of finishes they recomment on their site - CAL Redwood Exterior Finishes Guide
 
During factory pre-finish all four sides of the board are completely sealed, ensuring total protection. Controlled temperature and humidity levels stabilize any moisture in the wood. The finished siding arrives at the job site totally protected from exposure to water and sunlight.
 
To get a True Finish Cost Comparison we interviewed the owner of a professional finishing company. He told us if you are going to do the job right- you can't do it better (or cheaper) than the machines. If you are planning to stain instead of paint- the number of gallons needed per square foot virtually doubles. You do not have to apply a final coat to the face after installation but you had better have a large, well ventilated area with racks for the wood siding to dry - usually 3-7 days depending on humidity and finish choice.

SAPWOOD vs HEARTWOOD

The difference between SAP B and HEART B ? Color Contrast and Resistance to elements.
 
Both sapwood and heartwood have similar grades categories - Construction, Selects, Clears - but these grades have nothing to do with sap or heart by themselves they are only specifications of how many knots/flaws are allowed in the grade.
 
A SAP Redwood Siding order will contain a mix of boards with heartwood and sapwood usually on the same board. A designation of HEART allows NO sapwood. The only way to get all RED color and none of the lighter sapwood is to specify “all heart”. This comes at a price since there is less heart in the world and manual selection of timbers is required to assure the ALL HEART designation.
 
To clarify - unless the word HEART appears in your order there is no limit on the amount of white wood allowed (though most self respecting mills fullfil Redwood SAP orders with 50/50 split heart to sap).

Clear All Heart Redwood: READ THIS BEFORE YOU SPECIFY OR BUY!!!!

There is a LOT you need to know before specifying or using redwood especially Clear All Heart redwood. The first thing I do when consulting with customers and architects is take them on a little tour through the reality of today's REDWOOD.
 
Redwood is beautiful, renewable and sustainable which is why we love it however it is no longer as uniform in appearance or the powerhouse performer it used to be. All Heart Redwood's resistance to moisture and insects has been down graded from "excellent" to "moderate" due to the abundance of new growth in the market.
 
The newer growth can vary in "red" hue due to the different age of the trees the heartwood is harvested from. You can see the comparative color depth of boards in the pictures above. All met the CAH VG grade designation but the heartwood itself varies in color intensity.


example of All Heart Redwood Siding mixed grain boards

MIXED GRAIN - VERTICAL GRAIN

In the All Heart Redwood picture above the Appearance, Uniformity of grain and Texture of the grain varies from board to board. See the boards I am touching ? They to are both vertical grain - what we call “close grain” which is old growth redwood. The one in the center is "tight" vertical grain meaning that it meets the grade requirements of 8+ #growth rings per INCH.
 
The board to the right of the index finger is "open grain" or new growth. It is vertical grain but notice how widely spaced the growth rings are compared to the close and tight growth boards ? The surrounding boards are mixed grain.
 
Today redwood is probably THE most sustainably forested species in the world which is a good thing however you need to understand what this means to the end product you will get. This was a Redwood Heart Mixed grain order that included some Vertical Grain boards. There is usually some percentage of VG included with all mixed grain heartwood orders and you can select for a more consistent look by grading through your siding boards before you install.
 
Sustainable harvesting methods are intended to preserve the species survival while maintaining environmental balance. In order to achieve these goals the grade rules allow the use of products made from New Growth forests. New Growth are trees that grew in an area after logging or another disturbance which removed Old Growth trees. 2nd growth redwoods can grow very fast, in optimal conditions a redwood can grow as much as six feet a year or more. A forest in Humboldt Redwood State Park, logged 80 years ago reports New Growth trees that are nearly 200 feet tall today.
 
This rapid growth creates annual grain rings that are spaced much farther apart than old growth. A product made from old growth could have as many as 50 annual grain rings per inch. A product made from New Growth could have as few as 1 ring per inch.


 
example All Heart Redwood Siding mixed grain order

ALL Heart B grade Redwood Siding - Mixed Grain


In every redwood order you will get mostly new growth with some old growth mixed in. Above we have Heart B Redwood Siding with a "mixed grain" grade designation. There was no SAP wood in this customer's order. However as you can see - the difference between OLD and NEW growth, VERTICAL and MIXED grain - creates strong variations in color and hue.
 
There is usually some percentage of Vertical Grain boards included with all mixed grain heart redwood orders. You can select for a more consistent look by grading through your siding boards before you install.
 
If NO grain designation is made "Mixed Grain" is the standard. The visual variation in a "Clear All Heart" Designation with no reference to grain is striking in both color and consistency.
 
But if the grade & grain is not specfied when the order is placed, the variation in a mixed grain order can come as an unwelcome surprise to architects and customers expecting a more uniform appearance.

Why HEART Redwood?

Above we have a house with Clear All Heart Vertical Grain Redwood Siding on it installed 30 years prior to these pictures. The owner had not finished it for 15 years before we did this photo shoot.
 
This type of performance and appearance is what most people expect when they specify, order or go to replace their redwood. The problem is this Old Growth ALL HEART Redwood Siding is vary rare, difficult to find and expensive to get in today's marketplace.

TODAY'S Redwood Market

There are very few lumber yards carrying Redwood siding, decking and lumber inventory these days so most logs have to be harvested from 2nd and even 3rd growth California forests, processed into raw lumber and shipped to custom pattern mills further East.
 
They are not harvesting old growth redwood in large volumes anymore. What is available comes from private lands or what old timer mills have saved in their inventories and horde like GOLD.
 
You can still get a "close grain" designation if you have the budget for it but even that only holds the rule to no less than 8 rings per inch of wood. Take a look at the picture above, you can't even fit a razor blade between those rings - there are a LOT more rings in that old growth redwood siding than 8 per inch.
 
Which brings me to my point. Redwood is beautiful, renewable and sustainable which is why we love it however it is no longer as uniform in appearance or the powerhouse performer it used to be. All Heart Redwood's resistance to moisture and insects has been down graded from "excellent" to "moderate" due to the abundance of new growth in the market.
 
Heart Redwood siding can still be used and will perform but you have to take care of it. I would not leave today's all heart redwood siding, decking or lumber to the elements without some form of protection and maintenance.

You can see in the customer pictures above that even through this is ALL HEART redwood siding with no SAP wood, the depth of the RED hue can vary from board to board which is normal in today's later growth redwood market. To even out the color the redwood siding was factory pre-finished with Olympic Redwood 717 Semi-Transparent stain.
 
6 years after installation we contacted her and she was more than happy to recommend "I have only great things to say about your redwood siding!"


The PRICING of HEART Redwood
Mixed Grain, Vertical Grain, Tight Grain

The blunt part of the equation comes with the price of Heart Redwood. Once you have decided on ALL HEART the next thing that affects price is the number of knots you will allow per board. The fewer knots the higher the price. The next price jump is the angle of the grain - mixed grain vs vertical grain. Vertical is rarer and Tight Grain - 8 or more annual growth rings per inch - even more rare and costly.
 
To put things into perspective I will try to put some numbers to the cost of all heart redwood. Remember that pricing varies greatly due to volume and shipping so leave some room here.
 
Assuming a minimum order of 1000 Square Feet in a siding application ball park prices* are:
      Heart B Mixed Grain- Neighborhood of $7 to $9 per SQFT
      Heart B Vertical Grain- Neighborhood of $9 to $11 per SQFT
      Clear All Heart Mixed Grain- Neighborhood of $9 to $11 per SQFT
      Clear All Heart Vertical Grain- Neighborhood of $12- $14 per SQFT
      Clear All Heart Vertical Grain with Close Grain- Neighborhood of $16 per SQFT and beyond
     *SQFT Price variation is mainly dependent on delivery distance from custom mill to job site
 
A few things to remember-
 
We can do pretty much anything you want to do in redwood- as long as you know what to expect and have the budget. We have done it and know the best way to mill it and ship it. Is that affordable? All heart redwood despite its reputation - taken what you now know about appearance, performance and the market today - For most people that answer is NO it is not. That is just the blunt truth of it.
 
I have probably quoted clear all heart old growth vertical grain redwood 100 times and only 2 or 3 people opted to do it.
 
People ask me "aren't you supposed to be selling redwood siding?". My answer is NO- my job is not to sell you wood, my job is to make sure you know everything you need to know about that wood before you buy it so you will be happy with the result. This entire write up came early in our business from an architect who bought redwood through our company and did not like it because he had the wrong expectation - that the Vertical Grain redwood siding he had just bought would match the 30 year old redwood on the rest of his house.
 
That scenario cost us thousands of dollars to research our customer's issue and the builder who bought the redwood for him his business. Since that day we have worked hard to develop our educational approach to the redwood market and have not had one single complaint.
 
The truth as we know it baby!

Near Clear SAP B redwood paneling

If you are considering interior wood paneling you will enjoy the beautiful home interior paneling done by one of our customers using both Cedar and Redwood.
 
Our popular Redwood siding patterns include T&G, Bevel, Shiplap, Rustic Channel Lap and Dutch Lap - also called Cove or German Lap. The full spectrum of Redwood pattern diagrams and actual and exposed specifications are available and can be quoted upon request. Sizes include 1x6, 1x8, and 1x10" widths.


Redwood Grades

Redwood "Clear All Heart" (CAH) grade contains only wood from the heart of the tree and is the finest architectural redwood grade. It is free of all defects on one face. The reverse face is allowed slight imperfections. Our T&G, Shiplap and Channel Lap redwood siding patterns are reversable with one rough and one smooth face.

Redwood "Clear" grade is the same quality as "Clear All Heart" - the finest architectural heartwood grade - except that it contains sapwood in varying amounts and is allowed slight visual imperfections (which we consider character) on both faces. As far as allowable flaws and defect is concerned it is very similar to Clear All Heart - as far as resistance to moisture, rot and insects is concerned it is nothing like "all heart" redwood and needs to be protected in order to perform.

The other difference between CLEAR and CLEAR ALL HEART redwood grades is visual - the sap is bright yellow and the heart is deep red. The contrast can be striking. This contrast is beautiful to some (myself included) and this is the least expensive way to get the fewest amount of knots. You are giving up resistance and uniformity but you can augment resistance with technology and "tone" the contrast with stains.

Redwood Siding SQFT - LFT Coverage
 

Redwood siding is often sold by the linear (or lineal) foot. To figure out how many linear feet (LFT) of siding you need you must multiply the square foot area you need to COVER by a linear factor based on the siding width you have selected 6", 8", 10". The Lineal Foot Factor is derived by dividing 12 inches by the individual pattern's "exposed" face - the width that still visible after the siding boards are installed.


A) Calculate the square footage in walls: length x height = sq. ft.
B) Calculate, and then subtract, the square footage of openings
C) Add 10% to cover trim and waste = SQFT needed
D) Multiply SQFT result by the linear factor = LFT needed


BUYER BEWARE WARNING: The actual "dressed" widths and "Exposed Face" measurements below are based on WWPA industry standards book. However, some redwood mills use the California Redwood Association Lumber Patterns book.   BUT - independent of which pattern book is used - individual mills often have their OWN pattern standards which vary from the books (usually smaller). When you get ready to buy be sure to ASK for the exposed width to make sure you are buying enough redwood siding to complete the job!

Common Sense Siding Installation Tips

The fact is that all wood no matter how it is dried (seasoned) will expand and contract during the year due to moisture changes in the air.

Allow your wood to acclimate before installation. This is the most common installation mistake and the most costly. When the wood arrives it will begin to change sizes to adjust to its new climate. The worst thing you can do is install siding during this phase. This is true of ALL seasoning grades. Allow 1 - 2 weeks for your wood to acclimate. The last thing you want to do is install it DURING the change.

Ideally you would unband the wood and sticker it for proper air flow. But if you do not have that option then leave it banded for a longer period of time. After this acclimation period size changes will be seasonal and minimal. This simple step is the single most important thing to remember when installing any wood siding product especially PAD board.

Avoid moving lumber when it is raining and it should always be covered with a lumber wrap that allows air to circulate moisture out. Always keep lumber on pilings so air can circulate under the pile. Never store lumber in a room with fresh concrete or drywall. Do not store the exterior project wood anyplace where it might be artificially heated or cooled. It must adjust to the natural conditions where it will reside.

Most wood expansion and contraction is across the width of the board. Selection of a Lap pattern minimizes the affect of that movement. Movement length wise is minimal. But to minimize gaps take the time to miter (angle) cut and treat the ends as you install and the results will last for years.
