Siding, Fascia & Trim

We carry a wide selection of architectural styles

The look of wood siding is still preferred by most homeowners, and we stock a variety of traditional siding patterns commonly found in Bay Area architecture. Our inventory includes Bodyguard siding, made from sustainably harvested Pine and treated with an eco-friendly preservative, and HardiePlank lap siding, a fiber-cement siding that’s engineered to perform in the harshest environments. For the craftsman Bungalow builder, we carry Red Cedar shingles and all of the building materials to shingle a house.

Replacing wood siding

If you are replacing siding and need to match an existing pattern, our exterior siding products are architecturally correct to help preserve the historic character of your home. The wood siding we carry is milled to match traditional architectural styles and patterns, and in general features a more generous profile. If you’re renovating an older residence or restoring a Victorian where the siding profile is just a little thicker, then this siding should be a better match.

Bodyguard Exterior Siding

This is a premier wood product available in a variety of traditional West Coast siding styles and trim boards to enhance the architectural character of your home. Bodyguard is a natural wood product manufactured from kiln-dried lumber that’s sustainably sourced from the Pine forests of New Zealand. All defects such as knots and resin pockets are removed prior to finger-jointing.

Selection of Bodyguard exterior wood siding including V-Rustic, Bevel Channel, Cove Lap and Rabbeted Bevel

Bodyguard is treated under pressure with a carbon-based solution that penetrates the wood. This environmentally friendly preservative extends wood life and provides protection against decay, corrosion and insects. Above ground applications include exterior siding, exterior and interior door and window frames, and trimboard. Primed and ready to paint.

A sampling of Red Cedar shingles

Red Cedar Shingles

Naturally durable and resistant to rot, shingles are well suited for the architectural styles of the Craftsman or Arts and Crafts aesthetic, especially the craftsman Bungalow so commonly found in the Bay Area. We carry Red Cedar shingles. Cedar is a great wood choice because it’s dimensionally stable, resists swelling, and has less splitting and cupping. Our shingles are precisely milled and refined in appearance.
