Wood siding has been a popular choice for homes for centuries because of its unbeatable durability and beauty. You'll see a lot of classic older
houses with wood siding that's still gorgeous because it's been well taken care of by the homeowners. With proper maintenance, exterior wood siding
easily outlasts vinyl siding. (You'll also see all the non-wood siding products imitating the look of real wood anyway, so why not go with the genuine article?)
Wood siding can also be stained as opposed to painting the house. This gives you more choices when you're deciding on a look for your home. Staining also
helps the wood to retain visible and distinctive grain patterning while painting covers it completely.
We offer a wide variety of different siding species and accessories, including Eastern White Pine siding, Western Red Cedar shingles, White Cedar Shingles,
Alaskan Yellow Cedar Shingles, Primed 1/2x6 Western Spruce Clapboards, and Western Red Cedar wavy edge skirl siding. Come down and to take a look at these beauties for yourself!

If the price of red cedar these days scares you, Uncle Hilde’s has the solution. These tapersawns are nearly 100% heartwood and are sawn with
an extra thick 5/8” butt. Knots are allowed in the #3 grade. Typically only a small percentage of the pieces will have unsound defects in the
exposed part of the shingle. Seven bundles will cover 100 SF at 5.5” exposure.
Manufactured to simulate “live edge” clapboards found on many of New Hampshire’s old camps. Uncle Hilde’s is the only stocking dealer
of this product in New England. Kiln Dried. Other sizes available through special order.
Primed 1/2x6 siding, easy to work with. The Oil-Based Primer on all sides means it's ready to topcoat right away.
We now carry #3 Taper Sawn Alaskan Yellow Cedar shakes for sidewall applications.
These tapersawns are nearly 100% heartwood, with very few knots and an extra thick 5/8" butt. Seven bundles will cover 100 SF at 5.5” exposure.
We also carry Alaskan Yellow Cedar shingles in a #1 Fivex. These shingles have a 3/8" butt thickness and are 16" long. They are Kiln Dried, Clear All Heartwood & 100% Vertical Grain with very wide widths - up to 12" ! They are not R&R (resquared and rebutted). 4 bundles will cover 100 SF @ 5" exposure (thus the name “Fivex”)
Alaskan Yellow Cedar has a higher decay resistance than Western Red Cedar and yet the Fivex shingles are about $20/bundle cheaper than Eastern White Cedar Xtra Clears! It weathers to a beautiful silvery gray – there’s no need to finish although this species will easily accept a stain.
