The Best Raw Materials from Leading Producers

Silva Timber's Western Red Cedar is renowned for its high quality and consistency. Long term relationships with our suppliers and a deep knowledge of the cedar industry give us the advantage of having a continuous supply of the very best raw material.

Our size and buying power have enabled us to be in the privileged position of sourcing raw material direct from British Columbia’s largest and most respected primary producers of Western Red Cedar.

Silva Select cladding is made exclusively from premium coastal grown Western Red Cedar. Trees grown in the coastal region of British Columbia produce timber that is generally richer in colour and tighter grained than that produced from Western Red Cedar trees grown further inland. With its distinctive aroma and luxurious appearance, Silva’s Western Red Cedar stands apart from the rest, providing unrivalled beauty and maximum dimensional stability – it is known as Silva Select.

To guarantee quality and consistency the raw material is graded three times at source then further selection is done at Silva. It is first graded in the sawmill, then sized and graded once again before it undergoes the kiln drying process. Once kiln dried it is graded a third time to ensure accurate sizing and grading. As the raw material is moulded into cladding profiles at Silva, it is again checked and re-graded to ensure it meets our own in-house standards.

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.

Kiln Dried for Consistency

Kiln drying draws out moisture from wood more evenly than air drying. Consistent moisture content means optimal dimensional stability and enables cladding to be coated immediately and installed with minimal site acclimatisation. Silva Select Western Red Cedar is kiln dried to 16-18% (+/-2%), the UK’s optimal moisture content for exterior cladding. Read more about the importance of kiln drying.

Finishing & Protection

It is recommended that a finish is applied to all surfaces, including ends, before installation. The type of coating will be determined by the final finish and appearance desired.

Why Factory Coat?

  • Enhances the natural beauty of wood
  • Ensures a consistent finish
  • Applied in factory conditions
  • Long lasting protection against weathering
  • Simple maintenance routine
  • Reduces onsite labour costs

Sansin Enviro Stains

Easy to apply and maintain, Sansin Enviro-stains deliver outstanding performance. Sansin's range of wood protection products are available in 80 colour tones

What is weathering?

There is a risk involved when leaving wood exposed to the elements. During the weathering process wood can appear unsightly as the material can blacken due to moisture getting into the fibres and pulling out tannins and extractives. Finish protects the wood from moisture absorption and UV degradation.

What to expect from timber products

When working with timber it should be expected that although ‘on-grade’, occasional boards may have minor imperfections that will require ‘working’ if you wish to eliminate. Examples include raised grain, small splits, minor handling marks, sticker marks etc – all of which can easily be remedied by trimming, gluing or sanding. In most cases imperfections can be removed with very little effort, and the small amount of off cuts generated as a result will be absorbed in the normal cutting and selection allowance.




Silva Select Western Red Cedar is graded three times at source and then again at Silva Timber during the production process.

Select No. 2 Clear & Better (allowing 15% No. 4 Clear)

Select No.2 Clear & Better is the most economical clear grade. A slight relaxing of the grading standard allows it to be sold at a lower price point than pure Select No. 2 Clear & Better with minimal compromise on quality.

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.
