Exterior Residential Decking Products 2024

Thursday, May 16th, 2024

At Southern Panel & Decking, we’re passionate about creating beautiful, long-lasting outdoor spaces. Decking is the heart of any backyard oasis, and choosing the right material is crucial. That’s why we offer a variety of premium decking options, including two exceptional choices: Alaskan Yellow Cedar (AYC) and Red Grandis.

Alaskan Yellow Cedar: The Natural Choice for Durability

AYC is a champion of resilience. This naturally rot-resistant wood is perfect for hot and humid climates, where decks take a beating from the elements. While AYC doesn’t readily accept stain, it weathers beautifully to a soft, silvery-gray that complements any natural setting.

Southern Panel & Decking offers a variety of AYC options to suit your needs:

  • Pre-Sized for Convenience: We stock 2×6 decking with small, tight knots and eased edges, ready for quick shipment.
  • Customizable Options: Need a thicker deck board? We can custom-mill 5/4×6 AYC with eased edges, though lead times may be slightly longer.
  • Choose Your Grade: We offer AYC in small tight knot, clear mixed grain, and vertical grain varieties to match your aesthetic preferences.
  • Length Options: Most AYC comes in random lengths of 8′ to 16′, with some boards reaching up to 20′ for a seamless look.
  • T&G Installation: While clip systems aren’t compatible with AYC, we can mill your boards with a tongue-and-groove profile for a secure fit.pen_spark
  • Stainless Steel Screws Recommended: AYC’s natural oils can react with standard deck screws. We recommend using stainless steel screws to prevent corrosion.

Red Grandis: Beauty and Performance Combined

Red Grandis offers another excellent choice for your outdoor deck. This attractive wood is known for its durability in hot, humid environments. Unlike AYC, Red Grandis takes stain beautifully, allowing you to personalize your deck’s look.

Southern Panel & Decking has Red Grandis options to bring your vision to life:

  • Available Sizes: Choose from 5/4×6 or 2×6 in either square or eased edge profiles.
  • T&G Milling Available: Similar to AYC, Red Grandis cannot be milled for clip systems, but we can provide T&G profiles for a strong connection.
  • Length Options: Red Grandis comes in lengths up to 16′ for a spacious deck design.

Pre-Cut Board and Batten Siding Now Available

Monday, December 10th, 2018

We are constantly being asked to quote and provide board and batten siding and interior paneling for custom residential projects. Most of our mills that provide us with 1x siding material do not kiln dry any material less than 1 x 4 and do not want to re-saw boards to battens. Re-sawing wider boards will almost always results in many “wavy” battens so typically we have had to ask ask our customers to accept wider boards for battens to be re-sawn on site and installed immediately.
