Guide to Southern Pine Siding
Our Kiln Dried 1x8 Southern Yellow Pine Drop Siding Pattern 105 is ready for installation once received on your jobsite. However, wood will shrink and swell with any changes in moisture content and weather. According to Southern Pine Council, to minimize dimensional change after installation, install shiplap siding at a moisture content that matches with local climate as closely as possible. If climate in a particular region causes wood to maintain 8% to 13% moisture content annually, then the most ideal shiplap siding would be installed at a moisture content within that range, and the material would be stored, stickered and protected for a week to ten days prior to application.
1x8 Southern Yellow Pine Drop Siding Pattern 105 Maintenance:
As with every unfinished exterior wood, applying a quality finish to all surfaces (including the ends) is recommended. An exterior finish protects the wood from moisture absorption and UV degradation, and helps prevent staining caused by mold and mildew. On occasion, the siding may have a mill glaze that is produced when the material is manufactured through the planer. When mill glaze occurs, it is recommended to remove it by pressure washing the wood or sanding prior to staining. Sanding is not recommended as a first option unless every piece is sanded. We offer a wide selection of Oil and Water Based exterior finishes that we can recommend based on the final finish, maintenance schedule and look that is desired. Most exterior finishes do have to be re-coated or reapplied every 3 -5 years depending on the UV exposure to your home. You can find all of the exterior stain products that we carry at our Exterior Stains page. It is also recommended to caulk areas joints where the log siding butts into the corners or trim to prevent any moisture from getting behind the siding. All of our caulking items are located at our Caulk page.
1x8 Southern Yellow Pine Drop Siding Pattern 105 Storage Prior To Application:
Until installed, all log siding needs protection from direct sunlight, water saturation, snow, ice, dirt, and other elements. It is best to store the siding flat and off the ground with a vapor barrier so that moisture is not absorbed through the bottom boards of the stack. The siding should be protected with a waterproof covering elevated in the center so that water does not pool on the cover. We also recommend that you do not completely seal the bundle, as good air circulation is required to prevent any blue stain or molding. Ideally, the siding should be stored in an enclosed building such as a garage prior to use.
