Lindal's Premium Materials

Lindal is proud to use nature’s most perfect home building material: A kiln-dried, premium grade Western red cedar you simply won’t find anywhere else. You can choose from multiple siding options that can be mixed and matched to create a unique look. Our premium materials are the secret to the dramatic beauty, structural integrity, low maintenance, and living comfort in all Lindal post and beam homes.

warm, natural materials Quality

IMG_9762To what do we attribute the success of the Lindal home? Some believe it is the soaring volumes, open spaces and delicately articulated expanses of glass that inspire daily living like no other. Some credit the warm glow of cedar, mated with the massive strength of the post and beam frame and the enduring stability of the homes and the company that produces them. Others credit the quality and continuous refinement. Or is it the unmatched calm and comfort of the Lindal home style, in stark contrast to life itself?

Given the fact that, like snowflakes, no two Lindal homes are identical, the secret to their perennial appeal may well be the flexibility of the Lindal post ­and­ beam building system and its ability to respond to virtually every site and every homeowner’s vision in varied architectural styles without sacrificing its predictability and efficiency.

post and beam Structure

slideshow-2Inspired by master timber frame builders, Lindal’s unique post and beam homes allow for extraordinary design possibilities. You may desire an airy, spacious post and beam design that showcases the cedar and lets in the outdoors. Or you may prefer to arrange interior walls, doors and windows to manage traffic and to meet your most personal living style.

 

  • Post and Beam
    • Provides a strong framework of glulam posts and beams which supports the roof’s weight. Interior walls, as in timber frame homes, are freed from serving as structural support.
    • Provides exceptional design flexibility, giving you the greatest flexibility of any building system to modify a floorplan to your needs.
    • Allows for an open, airy interior with high ceilings and supports long spans and large expanses of glass—perfect for capturing your view.

Lindal offers post and beam home designs in more than 2,000 floor plans. So whether you want to build a 1,000 square foot cabin or a grand 6,000 square foot home, there is a post and beam home design in our library to suit your needs.

To learn more about the building materials components that come standard in your post and beam kit, visit with your local Lindal dealer who can also outline the optional top-grade materials upgrades.

siding, roofing, sunrooms & decks Exterior

Siding

Next to its distinctive design, your Lindal home’s character is most defined by the siding you choose. From cedar shingles to log timbers, Lindal offers a wide selection of cedar siding including:

  • Classic Cedar Siding

    Our premium-grade tongue and groove siding presents a striking classic exterior. The 1″x6″ tongue and groove siding is most often used vertically on contemporary style homes, and is a great option to combine with shingles, brick or stone.

  • Clapboard Siding

    Also called bevel siding, clapboard instantly evokes an era of fine craftsmanship and time-honored homebuilding traditions. This option comes in a variety of pre-stained finishes.

  • Shingles

    Lindal’s clear grade, uniform cedar shingles will enhance your home’s exterior while offering exceptional durability. Our shingles are sawn on the vertical grain to minimize cupping, and trimmed for parallel edges with butt sawn at right angles. They are available in natural, or primed on all sides in white, gray or special order colors.

  • Hardiplank

    The Hardiplank fiber-cement exterior siding is a durable alternative to traditional wood siding. Available in ‘Cedarmill’ wood-look finish, the material resists damage from extended exposure to humidity, rain, snow, salt air and termites.

Roofing

There are are two factors to consider when choosing your roof, the roofing system and the materials. The system and material choices provide you a lifetime of strength combined with energy-efficiency.

ROOFING SYSTEMS
Lindal’s engineered roofing system gives you the flexibility to match the style, pitch and roofing materials to your home’s architectural style. Each Lindal roof system offers excellent ventilation, thank to continuous vents that run the entire length of the soffit and ridge. The roof system creates a continuous airflow that keeps roof framing and insulation dry, preventing the moisture that can cause rot and mold. The same system also channels out unwanted heat in summer, which can help reduce the need for air conditioning.

Windows

Lindal is proud to offer a full selection of premium-quality windows in a nearly-limitless array of shapes, sizes, and options. Lindal windows are designed and built to fit our home precisely, representing a cost-effective alternative to custom-made windows.

  • Lindal Signature Window System

    Simply the finest cedar windows, now with maintenance-free exteriors! These outstanding windows and sliding patio doors feature maintenance-free, colorfast aluminum exteriors and the warmth of natural Lindal cedar on the inside. Each window has a range of glazing options for enhanced efficiency.

  • Energy-Efficient Window Options

    Installing the proper windows in your home is a crucial part of maintaining energy efficiency throughout the year. The right windows will block energy from flowing out of or into your Home’s controlled indoor environment. Protect your indoor environment by choosing windows with the appropriate glass coatings, glass fillings, glass spacers, and window frames to suit your regional climate.

Styles include casement, awning, picture frame, slider, double hung, bays and bows, garden, skywall, patio door, and others.

    • The Classic Trim package adds a northwest contemporary look and feel to any Lindal home.

This trim adds a formal element that perfectly complements architectural details such as gabled dormers, columns and decorative archways. The finely crafted casings, sills and baseboards blend well with traditional exterior and interior elements.

    All three styles include baseboard, window and door trim. Trim packages can be ordered for individual rooms or for your entire home.
