Vertical Grain 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 deck boards are more stable and tend to retain a finish better that flat grain deck 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.
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 decks built with Cedardeck Clear look fantastic year after year.
Being light in weight, Cedar is easy to cut and handle on site, reducing installation time.
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.
