Create an effortlessly modern look with this Western Red Cedar V-Joint Cladding
The finest tight grained Canadian Western Red Cedar
Cedar cladding produced from one of highest grades commercially available - No. 2 Clear & Better - and a high percentage of the boards are vertical grain, making it even more desirable. The wood fibre is British Columbia old-growth Western Red Cedar and it comprises almost entirely of heartwood. It is produced by Terminal Forest Products, a Canadian manufacturer whose quality standards surpass anyone else in the cedar industry.
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.
This V-joint cladding has a planed face and a SAWtex® textured face. The latter is recommended for exposure.
The SAWtex® face will accept and retain finish significantly better than the planed face, thus improving appearance and minimising future maintenance.
Visible wood grain creates a beautiful warm look
The fine saw textured face gives this cladding a beautiful natural appearance that makes the wood grain more visible and exudes a feeling of warmth, adding an extra layer to its appeal.
The textured surface also accepts and retains finishes better than a smooth surface. The open grain allows finish to penetrate deeply and consistently into the wood, so not only will it look better – with a richer and more even colour - it will last longer in between maintenance coats too (studies by wood scientists have shown up to 3 times longer).
Create Contemporary Indoor Spaces
From feature walls to room dividers, or even a stunning ceiling, Western Red Cedar V-Joint 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.
