Siding Guide

At Murray Bros., we offer a wide variety of patterns for dressed siding in various dimensions and species. If you are wondering what we can offer and what is best for your next project, look no further than our Siding Guide below. The guide outlines pattern names, dimensions, and what they are best suited for. Please mind the scratch marks and coffee stains! We've been using these for a long time.

Many of the patterns below are currently available in our Retail yard in "Outs" grade. The Outs can have cracks, stain, and rot so customers should order an extra 25% of material to account for extra waste. View some of our inventory under the Dressed Siding page under the Specialty Products tab in the menu.

If you feel the Outs are not suitable for your project, or you don't want the hassle of cutting out defects, then premium material is your best option. All the below patterns are available in premium grades, where we would run rough lumber through our planers to produce exactly what you want. You can place an order of premium material by calling our office at (613) 637-2840.

Pattern 17 & 19 - V Joint & Centre V
Pattern 17 is available in 1x4, 1x5, 1x6 and 1x8, Pattern 19 is available in 1x6

These patterns are some of the most classic finishes for interior ceiling and paneling. Note that we can produce runs of material where both faces have a pattern. For example, a run of siding with Pattern 17 on one face and Pattern 19 would be written as Patt 17/19. Packs like this are super versatile and allow the customer to use different faces for different rooms/applications. We have lots of material in these patterns in the outs that may be suitable for a wide range of applications. For example, customers looking for an inexpensive alternative to plywood or particle board can use these patterns in the "outs" for roof sheeting. 

Pattern 14 & 15 - Flooring
Pattern 14 is available in 1x4, 1x5, and 1x6, Pattern 15 is available in 2x6 and 2x8

Perfect for flooring projects in homes, cottages, barns, hay lofts, the list goes on! Pattern 14 in 1" thickness can be useful in side paneling, ceilings, or roof sheeting. When it comes to pine flooring, the width of these patterns is really nice and offers a much more affordable option in comparison to hardwood flooring. 

Patterns 10 & 11 - Log Siding
Available in 6" and 8" widths.

Log siding is the perfect choice for someone looks to perfect a project in a wood setting, such as a cabin on the Major Lake Road, a cottage on Aylen Lake, and beyond! The rounded log siding can be used on homes, cottages, and outbuildings to give a historic look similar to the buildings constructed in our areas hundreds of years ago. 

Patterns 2, 7, 30 - Shiplap
Pattern 2 and 30 are available in 1x8 and 1x10, Pattern 7 is available in 1x8

Patterns 2 and 30 are extremely versatile options for exterior finishes as they can be used horizontally or vertically. Pattern 7 is also extremely versatile and is on of our most popular patterns. Used in side paneling, ceilings, roof sheeting, and even flooring, the 1x8 Red Pine Shiplap offers so many options for use! We have had several customers use Pattern 7 for interior siding projects that have turned out great. Please note that we have this pattern periodically available in our "Hippie Stain" finish, which will add a ton of character to your project.

Pattern 24 - Door Jamb

If you want dressed material that is thick and sturdy, look no further than our Pattern 24. As the name suggests, this pattern is an important component of a door frame, with the jamb being used on the sides and heads of door frames. The Door Jamb pattern can be used in many other framing projects, including gardening beds.
