Bevel Siding with a square butt end is traditionally know as Clapboard Siding. Bevel Siding with a notched butt end is known as "Dolly Varden" or Rabbeted Bevel. Bevel cedar siding is popular for the traditional look and cedar's natural resistance to the elements.
Installed the thick butt edge over laps the thin creating an excellent weather barrier so that rainwater is shed from the siding. The minimum recommended board overlap at installation for 6" and 8" widths is 1 inch. Wider boards require greater overlap of 1 1/4th to 1 1/2 inch.
BEVEL WOOD SIDING can be milled into 3 different thickness - THIN, STANDARD AND THICK - each with its own price point.
Bevel Siding is milled by resawing lumber at an angle to produce two pieces thicker on one edge than the other. The Bevel pattern has a triangular profile with a thick butt and a thin upper edge. BEVEL Lap siding should be installed with the lower thicker bevel butt edge overlapping the thin edge which results in an attractive shadow line.

If you select PRIME + PAINT, the Primer coat will be evenly applied on all 4 sides. When its time for top paint coat, the machine's bottom jets are turned down to make sure the top coat is even thickness with no splash back. This will minimize the paint that gets on the backside and under laps. We recommend factory prime plus one top coat with a 2nd coat after installation in field.
BEVEL Siding includes 2 Pattern Profiles: CLAPBOARD (NO RABBET) AND DOLLY VARDEN (RABBETED)
BEVEL CLAPBOARD PATTERN - NO RABBET
BEVEL DOLLY VARDEN PATTERN - RABBETED
The Rabetted Bevel - Dolly Varden pattern features a 1/2" - 3/4" notch in the thicker butt end of the board. This rabbeted edge cut allows the bevel siding panels to fit together in such a way as to protect joints from water infiltration. The Dolly Varden Rabbeted Bevel profile is an easier install while providing the same traditional bevel style and appearance. You will appreciate both the beauty of our rabbeted bevel clapboard siding as well as the ease of installation.
We created Buffalo Lumber's four interpreted grade categories to describe wood grades for different softwood species - especially cedar - in terms a layman can understand because there are several lumber ruling bodies (WWPA, WCLIB, NLGA, NSLB, RIS, NeLMA, SPIB) and most grade descriptions read like lawyer fine print - allowing a lot of room for interpretation.
Highest Grade Fewest Knots - is the top of the line wood. This is an architect grade. This is the rarest part of the tree- the hardest to get- the best performing and the most expensive option. Your appearance and performance priorities determine your budget with clear grades. Clear and Clear Vertical Grain (CVG) are the Highest appearance grades we have.
But even CLEAR grades rules allow knots. They may be tiny, they may be few but they are allowed in grade rules.
Our STK Tight Knot Grade - "Mill Select" means the mill has selected the wood to meet the "Tight Knot" grade rule in the books.
There is no limit to the number of knots but there is a limit to the size and the type of knot. Other grade names that equate to our definition of "Mill Select" are STK (Select Tight Knot) Select Knotty and #2 and better.
Mill Select is graded to meet the “Tight Knot” description in any given rule book and is the first official “Appearance Grade” tier for projects where codes have to be met.
Our Buffalo Budget Knotty Grade is a "No Prior Selection" tight knot grade. That means that the mill has not officially graded to be "Select Tight Knot" by the rule book as is done with "Mill Select" grades.
Buffalo "Customer Select" means you the customer spend the time selecting out defect from a higher grade saving the mill time and you dollars.
You will get a few loose knots but nothing that would threaten a 10-15% job site trim and waste margin.

The biggest and most frequent mistake we see people make is thinking they can just tack cedar siding up and stain the face to save money. This is the Worst Thing you can Possibly do with Wood Siding!
The problem is water. Water gets behind the wood and causes problems. By the time you realize there is a problem the cost to repair it is in the thousands or tens of thousands.

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...
