This Silva Select Contractor Western Red Cedar cladding offers a high-quality appearance at a lower price point than the flagship Silva Select Prestige VG range.
Aimed at contractors for larger-scale projects, the grading of Silva Select Contractor is less stringent. Most boards (approximately 85%) meet the grading rules for ‘No. 2 Clear & Better’, with a smaller percentage (approximately 15%) falling into the ‘No. 4 Clear’ grade. For this reason, occasional pieces will exhibit slightly larger knots, knot holes, and other characteristics that would otherwise not be permitted in the ‘No. 2 Clear & Better’ grade.
This Western Red Cedar Channel 10 profile is part of the Optima Series, a range of precision machined profiles that feature unique design details that make them easier to install and to help them perform better. Cladding profiles in the Optima series feature a discreet nail line for ease of installation together with a substantial overlap where the boards connect to accommodate the natural movement in wood.
It is possible to install the Optima Channel 10 proﬁle either horizontally or vertically. A square-sided recess where the boards meet creates bold shadow lines that will accentuate either the height or width of the façade. Boards connect with a tongue and groove system for easy installation.

Western Red Cedar is synonymous with beauty and durability, thanks to its stunning colour palette and expected service life of 60+ years. The raw material used to produce Silva Select Contractor No. 2 Clear & Better 85/15 Western Red Cedar cladding is sourced from forests in the coastal regions of British Columbia, Canada – an area known for its high quality, fine-grained old-growth logs.
Western Red Cedar Channel cladding looks stunning indoors too, creating a feeling of warmth and luxury on accent walls or feature ceilings. Its excellent dimensional stability makes it perfect for high moisture areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, conservatories, swimming pools, and saunas.
The Optima Series is a range of precision machined cladding profiles designed and made by Silva for optimum performance.
Optima profiles feature unique design details that make them easier to install and to help them perform better. Optima profiles also look great – a cut above your average wood cladding.
Optima profiles are produced in 'high performance' wood species and come with a range of neat corner and trim solutions.
Wood is a hygroscopic material that takes up and releases moisture according to the temperature and relative humidity of the ambient air. Changes in the moisture content of wood will lead to variations in the dimensions of wood. It will shrink as it releases moisture and expands again as it takes up moisture.
Cladding profiles in the Optima Series feature a substantial overlap where the boards connect to accommodate this natural movement in the wood without exposing a gap.
This Western Red Cedar No. 2 Clear & Better Channel Cladding is graded on one face only. Boards are not reversible and, as such, some surface/roller marks may expected on the rear of the boards.
