Western Red Cedar Timber Cladding

Back to Products


Western Red Cedar is a versatile, attractive and durable timber, making it one of the most popular choices for use in external cladding applications.  Slow grown and naturally durable, Cedar has one of the longest life spans of any North American softwood.  It can produce long lengths of clear timber with true straight grain and has natural resistance to decay. 

Western Red Cedar brings a rich and warm multi-tonal effect and will eventually mature into an attractive silvery grey. 

Lightweight, easy to work with, easy to finish, easy to stain, possessing outstanding dimensional stability, Western Red Cedar is an excellent material for exterior cladding applications.  Its low density means Cedar offers superior thermal qualities and helps to keep buildings cool in summer and warm in winter.
