Silva Timber's Western Red Cedar makes perfect sense.

Silva’s kiln dried Select No. 2 Clear & Better grade Western Red Cedar trim is the perfect material for adding the finishes touches and accentuating the details that can make a building look really special.

This unique wood species is known mostly for its beauty and durability – attributes which make it a much sought after finished product for a variety of exterior and interior uses. Western Red Cedar is the perfect material for door and window trim, fascia boards, barge boards, soffits and many other trim applications.

In addition to its looks and renowned durability, Western Red Cedar possesses a number of other natural attributes that make it the ideal choice for exterior trim applications. When properly kiln dried it possesses exceptional dimensional stability, which means that when in situ it won’t warp or twist and will exhibit virtually no movement over time. Once installed, Western Red Cedar trim boards will remain flat and straight throughout their service life.

Western Red Cedar is the perfect substrate for paints or stains. The fact that it is dimensionally stable, fine grained and richly textured combined with its absence of pitch or resin (a common cause of wood finish failure) means that it will accept a finish beautifully and retain it over time.

When finished with a translucent or opaque wood stain, Western Red Cedar will provide an unsurpassed level of quality and detail that no other material – man made or natural – can provide. It will add value and aesthetic appeal to any type of residential or commercial building.

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

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 No.2 Clear and Better

This particular product is produced from a sawn Western Red Cedar clear grade known as ‘No. 2 Clear and Better’. It is one of two grades - the other being ‘No. 4 Clear’- of sawn clear Western Red Cedar which are classified in accordance with the R-List Export Grading Rule Book published by the Pacific Lumber Export Bureau.

Silva Select No. 2 Clear & Better far exceeds the grading rules set out in the Export R-List Grading & Dressing Rules book. Usually with this grade you should expect some trimming and wastage; however with this product you will find very little. We have repeatedly been told by industrial users that this product is the best they have seen on the UK market.
