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.
