Silva Timber's Western Red Cedar makes perfect sense.
Silva’s kiln dried Western Red Cedar trim is the perfect material for adding the finishes touches and accentuating the details that can make a building look really special.
This unique wood species is known mostly for its beauty and durability – attributes which make it a much sought after finished product for a variety of exterior and interior uses. Western Red Cedar is the perfect material for door and window trim, fascia boards, barge boards, soffits and many other trim applications.
In addition to its looks and renowned durability, Western Red Cedar possesses a number of other natural attributes that make it the ideal choice for exterior trim applications. When properly kiln dried it possesses exceptional dimensional stability, which means that when in situ it won’t warp or twist and will exhibit virtually no movement over time. Once installed, Western Red Cedar trim boards will remain flat and straight throughout their service life.
Western Red Cedar is the perfect substrate for paints or stains. The fact that it is dimensionally stable, fine grained and richly textured combined with its absence of pitch or resin (a common cause of wood finish failure) means that it will accept a finish beautifully and retain it over time.
When finished with a translucent or opaque wood stain, Western Red Cedar will provide an unsurpassed level of quality and detail that no other material – man made or natural – can provide. It will add value and aesthetic appeal to any type of residential or commercial building.
