Title: Service life of finishes on smooth-planed and saw-textured western redcedar bevel siding

Author: Williams, R. Sam; Feist, William C.;

Date: 2007

Source: JCT Coatings Tech. Vol. 4, no. 8 (2007): p. 58-70.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The performance of 35 finishes (clear water-repellent Preservatives; lightly pigmented, water-repellent preservatives; semitransparent stains; solid-color stains; and paints) applied to newly planed vertical-grained; factory-planed, flat-grained; or saw-textured, vertical-grained western redcedar bevel siding was evaluated for cracking, erosion, and general appearance over 14 years of outdoor exposure at two sites (Madison, WI, and Gulfport, MS). Service life was dependent on the wood surface and increased in the following order: clear water-repellent preservatives; lightly pigmented, water-repellent preservatives; semitransparent stains; solid color stains; and paints. The performance was about the same for both the flat-grained and vertical-grained smooth-planed bevel siding but was greatly improved for almost all finish systems on the saw-textured western redcedar bevel siding.
