Break Away From the Boring Typical Siding Offerings! Tigerwood Siding Will Set Your Home Apart.
Tigerwood siding is one of the best wood siding options available. Tigerwood siding is featured in many commercial / upscale residential projects and it's made of solid tigerwood so it has the same great durable characteristics of standard Tigerwood Decking.
When you compare Tigerwood siding to other artificial siding options, you’ll quickly see why it's a superior choice. Tigerwood siding is 100% natural, low-maintenance, and does not have chemically produced additives. Unlike other siding options, Tigerwood siding also easily resists termites, mold, and wood rot.
When you order Tigerwood siding from TigerwoodDecking.com®, you're buying direct from the mill at a cost not found anywhere else. We have such great siding prices due to our direct relationships with hardwood exporters. This is why we're the leading supplier of exotic hardwood in the United States.

Tigerwood Shiplap Siding Installation
Tigerwood Shiplap Siding Installation
To protect from excess moisture apply a vapor barrier to the wall
Attach 3/4" furring strips spaced over 16" to the vapor barrier
Starting at the bottom start the installation of siding by pre-drilling holes above each furring strip with a 1/8" drill bit. If using Tigerwood Plugs use a 3/8" drill bit to make a hole for each wood plug to fit into.
To secure the bottom half of each board, drive a 3" stainless steel screw through the 1/8" pre-drilled hole.
Predrill with a 1/8" drill bit a hole through the narrow part of the siding that sticks out against the wall at the top of the board.
Next, drive a 3" stainless steel screw through the 1/8" pre-drilled hole. Do not worry about plugging this hole since the next board you install will cover this fastener.
Repeat steps 1-6 the above steps for the rest of the project.

HOW TO INSTALL RAINSCREEN SIDING MATERIALS NEEDED:
Tigerwood Rainscreen Siding
DeckWise® Hidden Siding Fasteners
Stainless Steel Screws
Furring Strips (1x3 pine is typical)
Base board (1x6 PT Pine is typical)
PRIOR TO INSTALLATION:
Calculate how much siding you will need based on the "Net Finished Dimensions" only.
Tigerwood Rainscreen Siding must acclimate to your local climate.
Use End Seal to cover the ends of the grain of any freshly cut siding boards.
Do you need a permit? Permission from your Homeowner's Association? Before starting any project, you must always check local building codes.
STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLATION GUIDE:
Install house wrap to prevent moisture intrusion. (Always follow the vapor barrier manufacturer's instructions.)
Install the baseboard (horizontal furring strip) with stainless screws. Ensure the baseboard is level.
Align furring strips vertically on top of baseboard 16" on center. Attach furring strips.
Install starter clips (included with the hidden siding fastener kit) on your baseboard. Align each starter clip with the furring strips installed in step 3. (TIP: use a chalk line reel to create a level line).
Install the first Tigerwood Rainscreen Siding board on top of the starter clips. (TIP: Use a level to ensure this first board is aligned properly).
Place hidden siding fasteners into the pre-molded groove
Drive stainless steel screw through the siding fastener into the furring strip at a 45 degree angle.
Set the proceeding siding boards on top of the installed siding fasteners. (TIP: Use a rubber mallet to align boards properly).
TIP: Where two pieces of siding abut against each other, use two fasteners. (Use two starter clips if there is more than one piece of siding installed on the baseboard).
