Western Red Cedar is a unique and prestigious softwood with outstanding physical characteristics. It offers a rare combination of aesthetic appeal and durability without chemicals, thanks to decay-resistant composition. The superior dimensional stability means project components are likely to stay straight, flat and resist warping and cupping; season after season. In addition, cedar is easy to cut,saw and nail with common tools, and readily accepts finishes.
We carry a high grade "architectural knotty" grade of cedar. We also carry the full range of sizes, most lumberyards and certainly big box stores only carry a limited stock.
Cedar is usually used in decks and docks. To maintain the surface, we recommend a stain. It costs more than pressure treated but less than composite lumber.
More information can be found on the Western Red Cedar Association website.
