White Cedar Siding for Architects
We’ve custom milled white cedar siding since 1971 for projects in New England, New York City, Virginia, Idaho and more. White cedar lumber is prized for versatility and durability. From warm tones to its classic silver patina, there’s nothing like it. Our work’s in architectural media and a range of luxury homes and institutions.
Atlantic White Cedar & Northern White Cedar
Also known as Eastern Cedar and Arborvitae, white cedar wood is native to New England and valued across the US. Our collaborations with designers seeking custom milled profiles prove that White Cedar Siding is timeless. We’re proud to have helped so many designers develop unique projects.

Robert Gross, AIA|LEED AP, custom mills with us to create warm, light volumes, and optimize light dynamics. His projects span a range of Modern styles, giving showcases to Northern White Cedar Siding to define and accentuate spaces in New Jersey.

Brooklyn’s Barker Freeman Design Office uses our custom milled Atlantic White Cedar siding in various profiles and settings, from rural to urban to beach, satisfying both aesthetic and sustainability demands.
Reclaimed wood for modern works
Boston’s Wolf Architects used new and reclaimed wood for a LEED-awarded rebuild and an addition, creating exteriors and interiors with our varied sustainable, milled woods.
Species & Provenance
We source & stock Sustainable products. New wood from managed forests, plus Rare & Reclaimed or Recovered Old Growth wood from rivers and structures. Both offer LEED credits for projects.
Custom Milling Options
We craft our products to standard profiles and are well known for custom milling per specifications from architects and designers. We make horizontal, vertical and diagonal siding, from shiplap to clapboard to tongue & groove and more – plus many versions of each. Siding is a decision to make with an architect, designer or contractor, but we’re always willing to share our experience and perspectives.
They include Redwood, White Cedar, Ipé, Angelique, Ekki, Cumaru, Greenheart, Black Locust & others.
Some is from Coney Island and other NYC boardwalks; originally from Africa and South America in 1900’s.
Old Beams & Barn Wood
We also supply and mill for other exterior projects like Pergolas, Porticos, and even new ‘old’ barns. We’ll cover you, literally, with the best wood for whatever project you have in mind.

White Cedar Lumber Company & Mission
WCLC was started by our father, the architect Wifred Armster as Wood, Steel and Glas (Dutch spelling) to ensure a supply and precise milling of his favorite wood, Atlantic White Cedar. We’re still family run, hands-on and well-known for the products and service he originated. (Our Dutch ancestor was in the wood treatment business back in 1600’s NYC.)
We built on his beliefs with a wider range of new, rare, reclaimed, and renewed woods that are Old Growth, Tropical, European, and Sustainable. Milled for exterior and interior by experienced millwrights, we offer huge beams, boardwalk, barn board, live edge slabs, veneer, 45′ pier logs, custom wood counter tops and more.
Mission- To help people utilize the beauty and integrity of White Cedar and other sustainable woods.
