Sanded Face Breckenridge Siding

New Option: Sanded Breckenridge Siding

 Original Eichler Siding that was used on Eichler homes from the 1950′s onward was a smooth face not a resawn face like common siding is today.  The designers chose a sanded face because it retains the modern clean appearance they sought after.

Until recently the only smooth face option for homeowners and contractors replacing Eichler siding was to use our MDO (Medium Density Overlay, now no longer available in Thinline)

However, beginning this year, in 2012, we finally have found a source for sanded, smooth face Breckenridge siding.  This is the very same material we have used over the years for both our Thinline and Wideline patterns, but now it has a sanded face.  This option provides a beautiful wood grain surface which is a great match to the original Eichler look.

The good news is that it is only a few dollars more in cost per sheet.  To be sure, some still prefer the semi-smooth/resawn texture of the original Breckenridge siding.

Check out the Breckenridge sanded panel exclusively offered by Eichler Siding and we think you will agree it is a great option to consider. If you would like to view a video of the two patterns, “Thinline” vs. “Wideline” check the link below.

Lastly, if you are not an Eichler homeowner, but are looking for a smooth faced material for either V-groove interior or exterior use, or some other pattern and need a smooth face, Breckenridge Sanded panels are a great option.

Below is a work in progress.  The landscaping was not completed when these shots were taken. With just the right angle and with the sun slowly setting,  you can see just how smooth the sanded Breckenridge is.  By the way, this is a great paint job on this home and is showing the reflection of our cedar fencing.
