Buffalo Rustic - Making your dream affordable

"Rustic Cedar" is the 1st fall down from a Select Tight Knot STK grade. 1st fall down means all the sticks that didn't quite make STK grade specifications were pulled but set aside as a higher quality than utility grade. EXCEPT for T&G patterns, Rustic Cedar is milled Green. It will contain some loose knots with 95% usable surface with trimming. Milled Green is a cedar grade that is designed to ease the high cost of cedar. Rough sawn is the only surfacing available in this seasoning grade.
Our years of grading experience and buying power have allowed us to find solutions to the high cost of market grade cedar. We have designed a grade that is not too rough to use and not too tough on the pocket book. Our value grade cedar is perfect for the “Country Rustic” wood lover where a flaw or 2 adds character. If you have been waiting for a deal this is it!

Buffalo Rustic Cedar Siding

The fact is that all wood will expand and contract during the year due to moisture changes in the air. The thing about green woods is that they are prone to changes of greater degree than kiln dried woods. You can minimize this effect by going with cedar siding patterns that allow movement without compromising the overall appearance. Lap patterns allow for movement with no noticeable changes in appearance. The best patterns for green seasoning are bevel lap and channel lap - allowing maximum movement without visible changes or gaps.

Milled Green PAD (partially air dried) is a cedar grade that is designed to ease the high cost of cedar. Rough sawn is the only surfacing available in this seasoning grade. The risks associated with green milling are minimized by careful selection of your pattern and surfacing. Buffalo Lumber has further reduced the risk by including a mill applied factory finish which provides additional air drying time after wood staining.

Tip: 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 size to adjust to its new climate. The worst thing you can do is install siding during this phase. This is true of ALL seasoning and ALL grades. The wood will take 3 to 5 days to acclimate completely. 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.

Our Buffalo Lumber U-Grade is a new type of lumber opportunity. We are offering discount prices for the creative do-it-your-selfer who knows how to work a saw to create beautiful red cedar paneling results with these Cedar Grading Techniques.

Our discounted U-grade is a Pre- Grade Red Cedar paneling. Each Red Cedar bundle contains a mix of #1, #2 & BTR, and downgrade panels. Each board will be touched. Most boards will need at least one cut. The U-Grade/Up-Grade numbers shake out like this:

50% comes in above grade needing little work
30% can be reclaimed by saw
10% can be reclaimed for trim
10% waste

This is an opportunity for cedar lovers to get beautiful red cedar at an incredible discount price - if they are willing to work with the wood. Check out the Step-by-Step grading process we went through while installing in our new red cedar show room. Enclosed are a few pictures of the worse types of flaws you will need to work around. These hard flaws make up less than 5% of the coverage area. You can see in the pictures shown that trimming around the rough patches still gives you 90% of that stick to use.
This red cedar wood siding product is perfect for customers looking for a little history in their wood. The natural flaws that occur give it an aged appearance resembling the way red cedar wood looks in its natural state. This point of view allows you to take "character" woods and turn them into art.

Cedar 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

T&G Siding Coverage

8"7 1/8"6 5/8"1.81
10"9 1/8"8 5/8"1.39
* assuming 1/2" overlap

* Lineal Foot Factor is derived by dividing 12” 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:

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

1x8 T&G:   1267 SQ FT * 1.78 linear factor = 2255.3 LFT

1x8 THICK BEVEL:   1267 SQ FT * 1.92 linear factor = 2432.6 LFT

1x8 CHANNEL RUSTIC:   1267 SQ FT * 1.81 linear factor = 2293.3 LFT
