When you picture traditional siding, the first thing to spring to mind is the clapboard siding style. Also known as bevel, clapboard wood siding has been protecting and beautifying houses across the country for hundreds of years. Whether you need siding for your new or existing home, Rocky Mountain Forest Products can provide premium bevel siding to fit your budget and style.
Clapboard siding is the most widely-used wood siding. It’s available in clear and knotty grades and is made by re-sawing lumber at an angle to produce pieces thicker on one edge than the other. The manufacturing process of clapboard siding results in pieces with one face saw textured. The other face of the siding is smooth or saw textured depending on the grade and customer preference. Bevel siding is installed horizontally and gives an attractive shadow line which varies with the thickness of exterior siding selected.
We offer customizable products at lower prices than you’ll find at a big box store. We keep our costs down and our quality high by buying all our lumber directly from the mill.
