Rustic and characterful, with an attractive shadowing appearance
Rebated Western Red Cedar Bevel allows for simple installation, ensuring even spacing and allows fixings to be hidden by the overlapping board.
Select Tight Knot is the highest standard of knotty cladding and trim available. This grade offers a distinctive, high quality knotty appearance. It has limited imperfections and restricts knots to sound and tight.
The grade is characterised by knots, grain patterns and other natural features combined with a palette of warm, mellow tones ranging from light amber to deep honey brown. Sound tight knots are live knots that are grown into the wood and are less likely to fall out than dead knots.
About Western Red Cedar
Western Red Cedar offers unique natural performance characteristics and exceptional beauty that bring warmth, character and longevity to the interior and exterior of residential and commercial projects.
The combination of durability and dimensional stability is Western Red Cedar’s greatest advantage over other species, making it particularly well suited for exterior applications where it is primarily used for cladding, decking, fencing and roofing.
Western Red Cedar is a truly sustainable building material. It has the lowest environmental impact when compared with other building materials such as brick and fibre cement. Independently certified, it is harvested legally and sustainably from managed forests in British Columbia.
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.
