Description

Due to a recent change in the specification of this product, we’ve moved this remaining ‘Silva Select’ stock onto the specials list at a reduced price. It’s been replaced by Silva Select Prestige VG – a 100% vertical grain product that is also slightly thicker. We’ve still got a good choice of lengths left in Silva Select, but its selling fast so don’t hang around.

Silva Select Western Red Cedar V-joint Profile

When you’re looking to achieve an effortlessly modern look indoors or externally, you’re guaranteed a high-end contemporary appearance thanks to the clean lines of the Silva Select Western Red Cedar V-Joint profile.

Whether installed horizontally or vertically, the simple bevel at both edges of the face creates a very neat, yet subtle, V-shaped shadow line effect along the joint that accentuates the height or width of any façade.

This V-joint cladding forms part of the high-quality Silva Select range of Western Red Cedar cladding, boards and accessories.


Only the Finest Raw Materials

The best Western Red Cedar comes from the coastal region of British Columbia, where the wood fibre is rich in colour with tight growth rings. We have long term relationships with the biggest and best producers there, and to guarantee quality and consistency, the raw material is graded three times at source and again by Silva during the production process. Our grades exceed the official industry R-List Grading Rules, setting us apart from our competitors. Why choose anything but the best?


Kiln Dried for Optimum Dimensional Stability

Cladding boards that have been kiln dried have many advantages over those that have been air dried. With controlled drying at source, not only are they more stable, but you can immediately apply coatings and cladding can be installed with minimal site acclimatisation. Silva Select Western Red Cedar is kiln dried to a moisture content of 16-18% (+/-2%) – the optimal moisture content for timber cladding in the UK . Read more about the importance of kiln drying.


Create Contemporary Indoor Spaces

From feature walls to room dividers, or even a stunning ceiling, Silva Select Western Red Cedar V-Joint Profile is hugely versatile for creating contemporary internal panelling in your home. With rich natural colour tones, it’s warm and inviting, making a great contrast to stainless steel appliances and modern fittings. No wonder its popular with architects and interior designers.


A Complete Range of Cladding Materials

In addition to the cladding boards, Silva also provides battens, Tyvek® breather membrane, stainless steel nails, door / window trim, soffits, fascia, barge boards, corner sections and a wide range of coatings and cleaning products – everything you need to complete the job.

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.

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.
