Pollution - Wood product manufacturing produces far fewer greenhouse gases.

Shakertown Cedar Shingle Panels

53

Environmental Impact - Wood has the lowest impact on air and water quality. This is especially true when compared to the manufacture of recycled steel. Forest regeneration also creates more trees which benefit the environment while they grow, taking in carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen.

Green Building - As the interest in "Green Building" grows, building rating systems such as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) have emerged as one way to rate the environmental impact of construction. These rating systems are founded on the four guiding principles of green building:

Energy Use - Wood products require much less energy to produce than concrete or steel. An independent comparison of the energy needed to obtain, manufacture, transport and install building materials for identical wood frame, steel frame and concrete houses proves wood's environmental superiority over alternative materials. The result is more fossil fuels saved with less air and water pollution. Resource Use - As the world's only renewable building material, wood can not only be recycled, but regenerated as well.

A step back in time, ROUGH rustic premium RIDER® panelings and sidings employ a unique process that transforms new wood, giving it a deep texture and a contoured raised grain, replicating the appearance of years of weathering. Old and new unite for a time captured rustic look with performance that withstands the tests of time. ROUGH RIDER’s rustic silver/ brown patina emulates the forces of nature and time without its damaging effects. While Rough Rider’s Eternity finish appears old and weathered, the wood fiber is durable and sound and the finish provides protection for the wood from the harmful effects of moisture and UV.

Serron & Legend at home in Minnesota

A little about Rough Rider... The Rough Rider Eternity Enhanced Finish starts out with a light natural coloring which over time (depending on exposure to moisture and sunlight) will deepen to a rustic silver/brown patina. The Eternity Enhanced with Shades Finish provides a hint of color that will require ongoing care and reapplication to maintain and is available in Saddle Brown and Granite Grey.

Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch... The Blake Family was looking to make a change. They were trading in their lake home and water toys for some true “horse power”... their names were Serron & Legend. The wooded lot with plenty of wide open space for a barn and pasture was perfect, and the house design blended beautifully, reminding the Blake’s of a Wyoming style ranch.

It was the challenge of trying to recreate the ranch look that stalled their construction. Both Bobbi & Scott had always been drawn to the rustic and natural character of weather wood, the problem was the cost.

Home Featured in Eternity Enhanced Saddle. Also Available in Granite Grey

“Reclaimed wood was just too expensive, and hard to get” said Bobbi. It was when they were visiting their local lumberyard that they came across a new product called Rough Rider and upon seeing just a small sample, they knew it was going to be right for their home. “We loved the look and the fact that it was affordable. The house looks like it’s been here forever, a warm country feel - we get nothing but compliments,” boasted Bobbi. You have dreams, we have ideas to make them a reality.

Finish Strong The Advantages of Lake States Lumber F actory Prefinishing Service To protect your natural wood sidings from the harmful effects of moisture and the sun, you need a finish that works with the natural characteristics of the wood. The Norway Lodge Brand of Environmentally Compliant Waterborne Coatings are engineered to both compliment and protect the wood by blocking UV rays and preventing moisture from accessing the wood.

When

properly applied in our factory setting, the Norway Lodge finish will offer years of maintenance free performance and provide a finish that stays “looking new”.

Tim Ryan Ryan Paint Contracting

The Norway Lodge Finish is

VOC-Free for the ultimate in environmental compliance and is offered in a semi transparent finish to allow the beauty of the natural characteristics of the wood to shine through.

Real

protection on real wood. It doesn’t get any better!

I have used Norway Lodge on more than one thousand projects with outstanding results. Smooth log siding jobs coated with Norway Lodge still look new after six years of exposure to the elements. The finish is very flexible and that helps it hold up to expansion and contraction without cracking and peeling from the stress.

Semi Transparent Exterior Waterborne Wood Finishes Exceptional Beauty, Performance & UV Protection

3x10 Norway Hewn Hand Hewn Log Siding featuring the Norway Lodge Finish - Moosewoods

3 Coat System - The base coat seals the wood to protect it from harmful UV rays and damage from moisture. The base coat not only promotes dimensional stability, it also provides an excellent surface for top coat applications. We then apply two layers of the top coat to fortify the UV resistance and to obtain the final desired color. Pseudo- Elastic Properties - Our layers of protection expand and contract naturally with the wood to prevent any cracking, peeling and flaking of the finish. No chalking or fading - Unlike other finishes, our product protects from UV damage preventing the onset of a degraded finish.

Environmentally Compliant Waterbourne Coatings

Environmentally Complimentary & Safe - The unique waterborne nature of the Norway Lodge System permits easy clean up with water while the finish is still wet. Our ZERO HAP CONTENT makes the Norway Lodge System the choice for safety and the environment and gives you the flexibility to distribute and store the product without hazardous material restrictions.

We also offer Sikkens Brand of premium finishes with the Factory Prefinishing Service - A full sixsided protection for your natural wood exterior, available in a variety of attractive shades standard and custom.

Proven Performance - Norway Lodge has undergone both extensive laboratory and field application testing. Independent Lab Testing recognizes the Norway Lodge Factory Finish System as having the BEST WEATHERING CHARACTERISTICS of any finish in its class!

We strive to make the colors appear as accurate as possible, be aware that finish color variations can occur due to the natural hues and grain patterns of the wood substrate that it is applied to. Also the amount of sunlight on the application when photographed and variation through the design and printing of this publication can cause color variation. Use the images as a guide, actual color samples are available upon request through your local building material supplier.

Lake States Lumber, Inc. | www.lakestateslumber.com

Clean Clear Finishes Don’t Come Easy! It is more than what is being applied to the wood. Lake States Lumber controls the process from start to finish. We take care to insure the wood is at proper temperature and moisture content before the process begins. Then our first step is to sand the paneling, removing mill glaze and any imperfections. We then apply three coats of our ultra clear UV finish, carefully sanding between each coat. The finish is applied to both the front and back of the paneling to limit the exposure to moisture and minimize the expansion and contraction of the wood. The paneling is visually inspected three times through the process to insure quality throughout the process. Lake States Lumber also offers our Advantage Plus Line of Pre-Stained Panelings. A great selection of colors to choose from along with custom capabilities.

Canyon Series: Texturized for a Rustic Appearance

Our flooring is individually selected for character and personality. Every piece is hand graded for unique characteristics that we feel tell the story of the Old West. With sustainability in mind, only standing dead, fire and beetle killed wood is used. We then start with a whole log and then carefully cut planks. This method produces a higher quality and incredibly unique floor. Wood grain patterns appear to dance and wave as they move from vertical to flat grain. Most flooring manufacturers use a lower grade lumber and then try to cut and high grade for flooring. We do the opposite and cut the whole log into flooring leaving the amazing character in every piece.
