Western Red Cedar Sauna RoomThe most popular Sauna Wood Paneling types are tongue & groove White Aspen and Western Red Cedar. Just frame in the sauna room, add insulation, wiring and foil vapor barrier and you are ready to install sauna wood T&G paneling. Proper Sauna T&G paneling woods are typically kiln dried to 8% moisture, which stabilizes wood fibers for sauna use and greatly reduces warpage and shrinkage of boards once installed. Order a Sample Pack of Superior Saunas Materials and compare the quality to your local available T&G woods that are typically not refined for sauna building. Stainless steel nails make sauna wood installation a breeze and will ensure your sauna stays "streak free" for the life of the sauna, as other types of nails will corrode over time leaving unsightly marks on board surfaces. Maintain your precious sauna woods with Sauna Clean which helps keep sauna wood paneling and benches clean and fresh. Complete your sauna wood paneling installation with a trim package of cove molding, baseboard and door trim in Cedar or Basswood.

Western Red Cedar Sauna RoomRemember to only use natural wood in saunas without staining or sealant coatings to ensure a healthy sauna. As chemicals in sealants break down from the high heat of sauna they can off-gas, plus the wood 'breathes' as it absorbs the heat. The only proven and safe product for sauna rooms and benches is our Sauna Wood Treatment Kit. We recommend the White Aspen Sauna Wood type for traditional steam sauna walls. While Cedar sauna wall paneling is often considered 'traditional', there are benefits of using Aspen wood which has been used for centuries in the Finnish and European tradition of sauna building. Doctor prescribed detoxification programs demand white Aspen paneling in saunas for a more pure 'toxin-free' environment. If you prefer that famous cedar aromatic scent then you can choose from Red Cedar or White Cedar sauna wood types.

    First is should be noted that Aspen tongue and groove sauna wood paneling is non-allergenic, meaning that many more people can enjoy the benefits of sauna, especially in health clubs, hotels, and other commercial saunas. Many Doctors recommend Aspen Saunas for people on detoxification programs. Aspen has almost no odor to irritate sensitive respiratory conditions, as Cedar often can. Aspen wood saunas have a brighter look that tends to stay lighter longer than cedar sauna wood paneling that naturally turns a very dark color. Aspen sauna wood paneling is a sensible alternative to Red Cedar sauna wood paneling. See Sauna Paneling Installation Diagram

    Installation: T&G sauna wood paneling can be installed in a vertical or horizontal direction. Vertical is most common, because there is usually little waste for 7' ceiling height. We have several common lengths of sauna paneling in stock: 6', 7', 8' and 10'. In most vertical applications, you will need to fasten 2x2" nailers to studs for proper backing for fastening paneling. Be sure to add supports behind paneling where benches and sauna heater will be installed. Our stainless steel finishing nails will not rust, corrode or leave streaks and stains on sauna wood as regular fasteners will. These stainless steel nails require a finish or brad nail gun which makes installation of sauna wood paneling much easier and will drastically save valuable time. Nails will not be visible, as nails go in at an angle on board tongue and then groove from next board will hide previous board nails. Nails can be installed by hand with a hammer, but this will require many more hours to install because a punch is needed to sink nails just below surface and there is a constant risk of damaging board tongues. See local tool rental shop for nail gun that accepts our sizes of sauna nails before ordering.

    The usual size of T&G sauna wood paneling is 3/4" thick x 4" wide in 7' or 8' lengths. Some wood types may be available in 1x6" size. Most paneling orders ship within 2 to 3 days however, depending on production schedule and availability for special orders it can take up to 2-3 weeks. Entire Custom Sauna Kits typically ship within 2 to 4 weeks of ordering.
