Whether you’re a contractor or a homeowner, choosing the right material and style is essential to getting the most out of your siding. Even if the job is an update of the existing siding, there are many factors you should consider when making your decision.
The experts at Wine Valley Siding Supply can help you determine which type of siding is best for your job, as well as ensure that the material you select is of the highest quality.
What is Channel Siding?
Channel siding exudes the essence of rustic without compromising efficiency or durability. It is a type of lap siding that can be installed horizontally, vertically, or diagonally for any directionally inspired effect. The individual boards are cut in such a manner that each one partially overlaps its neighboring board, thus creating a groove, or channel, effect. The overlapping of the boards also provides substantial weather protection.
Channel siding also has a variety of different grades that you can choose from.
Channel Siding Grades
The grade of channel siding refers to the presence of knots or blemishes in the wood’s exposed face.
- Clear Heart will have no distinguishable blemishes, or they will be so minute that they won’t diminish the overall fine aesthetic of the material.
- A Clear allows for more imperfections, yet is still considered to have a cleaner presence.
- Knotty Grade means the wood planks will have knots. The knots are considered tight and sealed, however, as to not jeopardize the integrity of the board.
