These 18x89mm ‘A & Better Clear’ grade boards are of exceptional quality. They are produced from the very best fine-grained, old-growth Western Red Cedar, sourced from forests in the coastal regions of British Columbia, Canada. This highly desirable and much sought-after material is practically free of knots and virtually all heartwood.

Western Red Cedar boards are suitable for various applications, including board-on-board style cladding, horizontal slatted screens, fascia, door, and window trims.

We have sourced a limited number of 1.83m and 2.13m lengths that we are offering in job packs at a heavily reduced price. We anticipate that this material will move quickly, so snap it up before it goes!

Production

These Western Red Cedar boards are manufactured to the industry's highest production standard by Terminal Forest Products, a family-owned and operated company founded in 1962. Terminal has built an enviable reputation throughout the sawmill industry as a leader in quality and consistency.

Terminal's fastidious approach to quality control means that the production quality of these boards is exceptional. The material far exceeds the NLGA grading standards for A & Better Clear.

Please note that we do not check each board in these packs.  Though you will likely be able to use most, if not all, of the pieces in these packs, we are selling with the caveat that there may be occasional minor defects such as splits, handling marks, etc.  We have factored the potential presence of defects into the price; therefore, we cannot exchange individual boards for any reason. 

This product is available exclusively in the UK through Silva. It is sustainably sourced from well-managed forests and supplied with full PEFC chain of custody certification.

Kiln-dried

Boards are kiln dried to a moisture content of 12-15% (+/-2%). Among its many benefits over air drying, the kiln drying process enables the boards to dry uniformly to achieve optimum dimensional stability. It also allows the immediate application of coatings and minimises site acclimatisation. 

Grade

These Western Red Cedar boards are produced from virtually knot free British Columbia coastal grown Western Red Cedar to meet the NLGA grade ‘A & Better Clear’. This quality of this material exceeds the grading standard.

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.
