Gary & Eustace Discussing Cedar Shingles and Poplar Bark Siding
Gary Campbell: Western Red Cedar is a great choice for natural beauty, for the decay-resistant properties. And it’s ideal for exterior use. Cedar Shingles, of course, can’t beat that. Nice wood shingles, you know a thing or two about wood shingles!
Eustace Conway: Oh yeah. I wish I had more of this around here. I’m just using what I have locally.
Well, what Reliance Timber carries is products that are kind of based on tradition, and that goes back hundreds and hundreds of years because it sort of interacts with the forest, the trees, the nature of the trees. It’s the stuff that makes sense!
Gary Campbell: We also do Poplar Bark Siding. That’s an alternative to Cedar Shingles. People use this for a lot of accents and Gables around Dormers, they’ll even do interior walls. They’ll do an accent wall inside the house with popular bark.
Eustace Conway: This has been put in the press and dried. You guys have got it ready to put on a flat wall.
Gary Campbell: Exactly right, it’s kiln-dried.
Eustace Conway: As long as it’s standing straight like that, the water runs off of it just like it runs off a tree. Holds up pretty well and protects the side of the house.
Gary Campbell: Many folks want to incorporate wood into their homes and that’s our job is to help them get there.
