All heart redwood siding has been a highly regarded material choice by contractors and home owners for over a century. Due to it’s beauty, easy work-ability, and longevity redwood siding will continue to be highly sought after. In widths ranging from 4″-12″, The Lumber Baron stocks 3 different all heart redwood siding grades. Each redwood siding order is run to the customer’s exact specifications. We are also able to replicate samples of existing redwood siding most other lumber yards are unable to match.
Do your self a favor and stay away from cheap alternatives like cement, sapwood, and finger jointed wood products. They may seem like a “good deal” but all are easily damaged and can split wide open. Nothing worse then paying someone to do the same job twice! Maintain the integrity of your home and replace that redwood siding with…redwood siding! Why change to cement or worse yet, tiny pieces of sapwood lumber that are pressed and glued together. When you think about what your really buying it just sounds cheap, doesn’t it? Nothing they have come up with or will ever come up with, will match the warmth and beauty of real wood, especially all heart redwood. Buy the best, it’s the cheapest in the long run.

Redwood heartwood has long been the local craftsman choice for both interior and exterior lumber applications. It’s beauty and rot resistance make it a highly desired construction material. Redwood lumber is light weight and easy to mill. It glues and stains easily. Painting is a little more difficult due to heavy tannin found in the redwood heartwood (which protect the lumber from rot and insect attacks) which often bleeds through. Two coats of primer are recommended before painting. Heartwood color ranges from pink to dark red to an almost purple. Sapwood is easily identifiable by its white color and doesn’t hold the rot resistant qualities the heartwood does. Do yourself a favor, don’t buy sapwood.
