Silva’s No. 2 Clear & Better 85/15 Western Red Cedar cladding offers a high-quality appearance at a lower price point than the Silva Select Prestige VG and Cowichan Gold ranges.
Aimed at contractors for larger-scale projects, the grading of this product is less stringent, allowing a few more imperfections that can be trimmed out during installation. Some surface marks, knot holes, and roller marks (on the reverse) are to be expected and boards will require trimming, sanding, and careful planning and placement to maximise coverage.
All of Silva’s Western Red Cedar cladding is kiln-dried so that it can be coated immediately and installed with minimal site acclimatisation.
The Tongue & Groove V-Joint profile can be installed horizontally or vertically. A bevel on both edges of the face creates a neat v-shaped shadow line that accentuates the height or width of any façade, providing a sharp contemporary appearance.
Please ensure when ordering that you make an allowance for wastage. We recommend adding an additional 10-15% over and above your initial requirements. If using the coverage calculator within the configure and buy, a wastage allowance of 10% is built-in for your convenience.
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’s 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 Tongue & Groove V-Joint 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.
