The unmatched beauty of Clear Vertical Grain Heart Western Red Cedar

This consistently high quality Clear Vertical Grain Heart grade Western Red Cedar is as free from natural flaws as it is possible to get, with only very occasional tiny grown-in knots and very minor imperfections permitted (if any are present at all).

With our Clear Vertical Grain Heart grade Western Red Cedar bevel cladding, we have gone one step further to ensure that our product is the very best available.  Vertical grain, which is also known as quarter-sawn, means that the growth rings run through the thickness of the board rather than across the width.  Not only does this provide a more uniform appearance but it also maximises the stability of the boards so they are less likely to warp, twist or cup.  Tests have also proved that vertical grain Western Red Cedar tends to hold finishes better, therefore it will require less frequent maintenance.  Clear Vertical Grain Heart really is the ultimate in Western Red Cedar cladding. 

Western Red Cedar – beautiful, durable and sustainable 

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.

Case Study

Western Red Cedar Bevel Cladding matches the beauty of the location

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. 



Clear Vertical Grain Heart Grading - Bevel Siding
(ref: NLGA Standard Grading Rules for Canadian Lumber p158) 

The exposed width is all heartwood and free from imperfections and presents a vertical grain appearance for 3/4 the width from the thick edge. The thick edge may contain light torn or raised grain.

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.
