A contemporary, yet classic building material offering beauty, versatility and durability.
No man-made material can match Cedar's beauty and centuries of proven performance.
Western Red Cedar is preferred where attractive appearance, superior performance and resistance to weather are important.
The Sapwood of Western Red Cedar is narrow and white in colour, and the heartwood often displays a marked variation in colour, that from the centre of the log may be a dark chocolate-brown changing to salmon pink nearer the sapwood, or the wood may be variegated with alternate dark and light zones. After drying and exposure, colour is lost and the wood becomes silver grey, the eventual colour can depend upon its environment. This weathered appearance is sometimes purposely sought by architects, but a further benefit of the wood is its ability to take and hold stains of the finest tint without discolouration. The wood is non-resinous, straight grained, somewhat course textured and exhibits a fairly prominent growth ring figure it is soft, brittle, aromatic, especially when wet and light in weight, about 350kg/m3 when dried.
