Vertical Grain Western Red Cedar, the finest quality grade available in the UK

Clear Vertical Grain Heart Western Red Cedar is sawn so that the annual growth rings form an angle of 45° or more with the surface of the board.  Vertical grain boards are more stable and tend to retain a finish better that flat grain boards.  This process is only undertaken to produce the very finest and most valued material.

Coastal Grown Western Red Cedar is fine grained with tight growth rings and tends to be richer in colour due the unique growing conditions on the British Columbia coastline.


Western Red Cedar - The Ultimate Outdoor Wood

Western Red Cedar is the choice of homeowners, architects and quality builders throughout the world.  Aside from its aesthetic appeal, this remarkable wood has outstanding physical characteristics.

  • Natural Durability

Western Red Cedar contains natural preservative oils making it highly resistant to decay.

  • Superior Dimensional Stability

Western Red Cedar shrinks and swells much less than other timber; stays flat and straight and resists checking.  This means that projects built with Vertical Grain cladding look fantastic year after year.

  • Light in Weight

Being light in weight, Cedar is easy to cut and handle on site, reducing installation time.

Western Red Cedar Tongue & Groove V - Joint cladding is produced from the very best fine grained, coastal grown Western Red Cedar. It is kiln dried to 12 - 15% moisture content which means that it can be installed and finished immediately without the need for acclimatisation on site.

Our Tongue & Groove V - Joint has been planed and sanded on one face leaving a smooth finish that is free of all natural and manufacturing defects.  This benefit of this is that there will be minimal, if any preparation required before applying a finish as there is no planer skip or raised grain to deal with.  Boards are reversible with the other face having a fine sawn finish which adds an appealing texture to the finished project.

Finishing & Protection

It is recommended that a finish is applied to all surfaces, including ends, before installation. The type of coating will be determined by the final finish and appearance desired.

Why Pre-finish?

  • Enhances the natural beauty of wood
  • Ensures a consistent finish
  • Applied in factory conditions
  • Long lasting protection against weathering
  • Simple maintenance routine
  • Reduces onsite labour costs

Sansin Enviro Stains

Easy to apply and maintain, Sansin Enviro-stains deliver outstanding performance. Sansin's range of wood protection products are available in 80 colour tones

What is weathering?

There is a risk involved when leaving wood exposed to the elements. During the weathering process wood can appear unsightly as the material can blacken due to moisture getting into the fibres and pulling out tannins and extractives. Finish protects the wood from moisture absorption and UV degradation.

What to expect from timber products

When working with timber it should be expected that although ‘on-grade’, occasional boards may have minor imperfections that will require ‘working’ if you wish to eliminate. Examples include raised grain, small splits, minor handling marks, sticker marks etc – all of which can easily be remedied by trimming, gluing or sanding. In most cases imperfections can be removed with very little effort, and the small amount of off cuts generated as a result will be absorbed in the normal cutting and selection allowance.

Western Red Cedar is the ultimate green building material. It is legally, responsibly and sustainably harvested in the publicly managed forests of British Columbia, Canada. Less than 1% of standing timber is harvested each year.

For each tree harvested, three are replanted to ensure the forests will exist in perpetuity. Western Red Cedar has a low impact on the environment throughout its life cycle. It requires significantly less energy to produce than man-made alternatives and is bio-degradable.
