This was beautiful 7/8" cedar 1 X 5, primed painted and glued. But, it was such new growth, a bit pithy and unstable, that it shrank and expanded so much it would not hold paint. The T & G joints open and close by 1/4", Western covers leak. Some have rotted and grown fungus in less than five years. $100 saved on lumber, $1000 of labor wasted. Go ahead, Charlie...tell them what a cheapskate I am.
