Most of the pine offered by SIDEX is white pine sourced in Eastern Canada.
Native to Quebec, white pine is the largest conifer in Eastern Canada, and its wood is the least resinous of all pines. A fast-growing tree, it can reach heights of up to 90 meters and diameters of 250 centimeters. Uniform in texture, white pine is used for moldings, cabinetwork, doors and windows, paneling and DIY. The wood is soft, varying from creamy white to yellow. It is recognized for its fine grain, stability and ease of machining and staining.
Knotty white pine:
For interior panelling and other related products, mainly when you want to show off the knots that characterize it.
Allows for wide, long planks, given the tree's characteristics. Pine knots are difficult to completely cover with OPAQUE stain, so we don't recommend it for interior panelling stained in light opaque colors.
White pine (clear knots):
For interior panelling where a more modern, high-end touch is desired.
As knots are removed from the raw material during grading, the dimensions (widths & lengths) available are rarer. Although it too is more often offered in semi-transparent stain, the absence of knots facilitates the use of opaque stain where appropriate.
Jointed white pine:
For interior panelling. This is the best option for paneling that is to be stained opaque, since the knots have been removed.
The boards are produced by butt-jointing small pieces, thus eliminating knots and offering an economical solution.
SIDEX siding products can completely transform the appearance of your home. With modern, elegant designs, these claddings add a touch of sophistication and style to your property.
Like any other type of siding, an annual cleaning is recommended to remove any dirt that may have settled on it, and to inspect any repairs that may be necessary. The Maintenance Guide contains all the best practices in this respect.
Re-staining is also recommended at different intervals depending on the type of finish.
Although there are a number of technical aspects to consider, installation is relatively simple. Whether the siding is installed by a homeowner or an expert, it is essential that it be installed as described in our installation guide for warranties to apply.
In addition to having the color customized, SIDEX offers you the possibility of having a 100% customized product made to your specifications: type, dimensions, profile, length, we can make anything to order (minimum quantities may be required).
