Question about the need to "sticker" wood


Hi all,
I just received about 6,000 LFT of cedar shiplap 1x8 siding at the house, which I've started to pre-stain. I know that wood needs to be stored/stacked with stickers for longer term concerns about warping, splitting, etc... problem is, if I try stickering every piece that I have stained thus far, I'll be spending more on stickers than I did on the siding. The siding will be outside, on pavement, and covered for a maximum of three weeks 'til it goes up. Suggestions on storage please??? could I at least sticker it every few layers or something??.....thanks in advance for any suggestions,
Sam

Question about the need to "sticker" wood


Stickering is more a means of storage of wood that has not been dried, as it promotes air circulation. I see no need to sticker wood that has already been dried and milled. Keep it up off the ground and keep it covered from rainfall and you'll be fine. If it isn't neatly stacked for storage you can count on losing a lot of it to warping, etc.

Question about the need to "sticker" wood


...That's definately what I was hoping to hear...I had hoped to get it stickered underneath every 12-16" to keep it off the pavement, and get it covered over as I go. Naturally, with this amount of material sitting, I'm a little uptight about maintaining the integrity of it...

"about maintaining the integrity of it.."------ just a few thoughts.
1. Back-prime the wood for water-proofing, and edges, or rain screen?
2. Tar paper or house wrap, which brand?
3. Foam board behind or no?
4. Location?

Thanks for the reply/thoughts Gary, I'm in Connecticut, have stained the board ends but didn't feel the need(hopefully) to back prime it (I had hoped that by going with cedar I could avoid the rot concerns that I'd have with pine...and am using Tyvek housewrap.

Are you using 5/4 or 2x trim at the windows, do you know to use backer rod?
