Western Red Cedar Cladding
Western Red Cedar is a wood of exceptional beauty. It has a richly textured, tactile grain combined with a palette of warm, mellow tones ranging from light amber to deep honey brown. It remains subtly aromatic, and the characteristic fragrance of cedar adds another dimension to its universal appeal. Not only is it one of the world's most durable woods, its natural resistance to moisture, decay and insect damage has long made Western Red Cedar the premier choice for exterior use. Cedar fibres in the hardwood contain natural preservatives that are toxic to decay-causing fungi. Properly finished, Western Red Cedar will last for decades, even in harsh environments. It is the ideal choice for a surface that is exposed to sun, rain, heat and cold all year round.
