OUR Mistake is YOUR Opportunity!

1x6 Tongue & Groove WRC Cedar Wholesale Deal

NEAR Clear WRC - Factory Pre-stained 1x6 Tongue & Groove - just milled!

We accidently milled and factory PRE-Stained 2212 SQFT of 1x6" Tongue&Groove NEAR CLEAR #2&BTR western red cedar when the order required CLEAR AYE&BTR.
"NEAR CLEAR" is our Buffalo Grade description for B&BTR, #2&BTR, and D&BTR Mill Grades that are one off clear grade. Near Clear has very few, very small knots and a median price point for the "Knot so fond".
In Buffalo Lumber Layman Terms - If we were talking about a 1x8" board 12' long, the #2&BTR Grade milled for this order allows no more than 3 knots per board no bigger than a quarter most much smaller. and many of the boards will be CLEAR with no knots. The end result should be a proportional mix of boards with NO Knots, One Knot, and 2-3 Knots.
After milling inspection 30% of our Near Clear 1x6" T&G siding order has NO Knots, 35% has one small Knot, 35% has 2-3 small Knots. If you are looking for CLEAR Cedar but can live with or work around small knots - this NEAR CLEAR may be the deal for you! Grab it while it lasts!

Square Foot Coverage by Pattern

Your volume - the square feet (SQFT) or Linear Feet (LFT) - you need to buy is calculated by multiplying the square foot area by a "factor" which is calculated from the "exposed" width of your size and specific pattern. "Exposed face" is the part of the siding still visible after the board is installed.

A) Calculate the square footage in walls: length x height = SQFT
B) Calculate, and then subtract, the square footage of openings
C) Add at least 10% to cover trim and waste (suggest 20% ugrade)
D) Multiply the result by the factor for lineal feet

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

Example: If you are siding six walls 8 feet high by 40 feet long with 1x6" T&G boards and we allow 10% of the total square feet for openings, you would need approximately 3100 linear feet:

6 * 8 * 40 = 1920 SQ FT - 192 (10% openings) + 346 (20% trim/waste) = 2074 SQFT * 2.40 linear factor = 4978 LFT
