Features

Loved for its rich, earthy tones, Cedar timber offers an incredibly aesthetically pleasing appearance. From honeys to pale browns, and even rich dark browns, its hue ensures the species will warm the space, wherever it’s used. It also features a fine texture and straight grain, creating a cohesive appearance throughout your application.

Workability

Durable yet soft, Cedar is incredibly easy to work with. From cutting, machining, nailing or screwing, the results are continuously positive. It also takes well to paints, stains and polishes, ensuring you can easily match the timber to other species found throughout the space. However, the sawdust can cause irritation for some people, so we recommend taking precautions whilst sanding.

With a below ground lifespan of up to 15 years, and an above ground lifespan of up to 40 years, it is ideally suited to cladding and panelling projects where it will easily stand the test of time. TAs a result, it is incredibly popular across a number of industries.
