These 18 x 89mm and 18 x 140mm ‘Clear Vertical Grain’ 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, all vertical grain, and 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 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!

Please note that these boards are also a standard stock item sold singly in various lengths.

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.


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 enables the immediate application of coatings and minimises site acclimatisation. 

SAWTEX® Surface Texture

The SAWTEX® surface texture provides a beautiful natural appearance that makes the wood grain more visible and exudes a feeling of warmth, adding an extra layer to its appeal. 

If you intend to apply a coating, this fine sawn surface texture is perfect for absorbing a penetrating stain with no additional preparation. SAWTEX® enables the coating to penetrate deep into the wood, rather than it just sitting on the surface as it would with a smooth surface. The result is deeper, richer, and more consistent colour because more stain is in the wood, and the overall level of penetration is more even.  Deeper penetration of the coating also ensures that the wood is better protected and requires less frequent maintenance.

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.
