Traditional Wood Siding

An Instant Facelift for Your Home

Traditional wood siding adds a stunning, natural appeal to the exterior of any home. With several wood species, siding styles, and staining hues to choose from, it’s easy to customize it to fit your home’s specific aesthetic. Whether you want smooth cut lumber or added shingles for a bit of texture, we have a wide range of traditional wood siding options in stock and ready to go.

Benefits of Traditional Wood Siding

Breathe life into the exterior of your home with traditional wood siding. Not only does it increase the beauty and value of your home, it creates a durable protection against changing weather conditions. Here are a few of the benefits of installing new siding.

Curb Appeal – If your home has stucco, brick, or even old siding that simply needs a refresh, traditional wood siding can give your home the facelift it needs. Whether you’re repairing a few sections of the exterior or ready for a complete replacement, upgrade your home with traditional wood siding and have it blend in seamlessly with the rest of your home’s overall aesthetic.

Customization – Does your home have an old siding pattern that you’re trying to match but don’t know where to start? With J&W Lumber’s custom milling service, you can choose siding to be a complementary match with your home’s other exterior features – just bring in a sample. Or, you can peruse the spectrum of stains and other traditional wood siding options we have in-store or available to special order, if you’re ready to change the complete look and feel of your home. Also, if you want to customize it, we can help you find the perfect match.

Environmental Protection – Traditional wood siding not only looks good but also gives your home much-needed protection against the elements. The sunshine, salt air, and moisture from rain and snow can all do damage to your home over time. A natural wood stain preserves the life of your siding to keep it looking beautiful longer.

Maintaining Traditional Wood Siding

With proper installation and maintenance, traditional wood siding can hold up against seasonal elements and stay looking spectacular throughout the years. An oil-based stain like Penofin or Messmer is recommended because it penetrates the surface of the wood and protects it from the inside out. Each premium wood stain comes in a range of natural colors with pigments that won’t fade or turn chalky while protecting the appearance of the wood.

Elevate the exterior of your home with traditional wood siding and see how stunning the transformation can be.
