Siding Patterns

TONGUE & GROOVE  T&G Siding is versatile. You can use it indoors or outdoors, rough side or smooth side, installed horizontally, vertically or diagonally, to provide distinctly different looks. The board edges are usually "beveled" but other styles that include flush-jointed, reveal and radius joints are also available. T&G siding has both a rough and smooth face and is graded to the rough face.


SHIP LAP  Shiplap Siding is a type of Drop Lap siding with tight joints similar to tongue and groove, but instead of a fitted groove it overlaps the next board usually by 1/2" to 3/4" . If you decide to install Shiplap siding vertically be sure to bevel cut the ends so water is directed to the outside.


BEVEL  Bevel siding is lumber board resawn at an angle to produce two pieces thicker on one edge than the other with a thick butt and a thin upper edge lapped to shed water. This pattern is special mill cut that allows the siding panels to fit together in such a way as to protect joints from water infiltration. It installs easily and gives an attractive shadow line.


CHANNEL LAP  Channel Rustic Siding has 1/2Ē overlap and a 1Ē to 1 1/4" reveal that creates a channel effect between boards. Channel Siding allows maximum dimensional wood change (breathing) in climates of highly variable moisture levels between seasons - without adversely affecting the appearance. Usually available smooth, rough or saw textured.


DUTCH LAP  is also know as Cove Lap and German Lap Siding. Lap sidings were among the earliest types of finish siding. With lap siding, the profile of each board partially overlaps that of the board next to it. In vertical applications, bevel cut the ends and install the lap siding so water is directed to the outside.


Log Cabin Siding  Log Cabin siding allows you to integrate the rustic charm of a log home with conventional frame construction. It looks exactly like a log but requires 75% less wood. The overlap ensures tight insulation against weather and eliminates the need for chinking between logs. The "reveal" pattern creates an attractive recessed effect between logs where you have a choice to create a chink effect with caulking if desired - but not required.

Siding/Paneling Coverage

Wood paneling is sold by the linear (or lineal) foot. Your quantity requirements are calculated by multiplying your square foot area by a linear factor based on the siding width. The Lineal Foot Factor is derived by dividing 12 inches by the individual pattern's exposed face.

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
D) Multiply the result by the factor for lineal feet

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

Coverage Example: If you are siding four walls 8 feet high by 40 feet long with 8" wide siding and we allow 10% of the total square feet for openings, you would need approximately 2250-2450 linear feet depending on pattern selected:

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

T&G: 1267 SQ FT * 1.78 linear factor = 2255.3 LFT

SHIPLAP: 1267 SQ FT * 1.78 linear factor = 2255.3 LFT

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

CHANNEL RUSTIC: 1267 SQ FT * 1.81 linear factor = 2293.3 LFT

DUTCH LAP: 1267 SQ FT * 1.77 linear factor = 2242.6 LFT

QTR LOG: 1267 SQ FT * 1.81 linear factor = 2293.3 LFT
