Cedar - Beautiful and versatile
Wonderful spectrum of natural colours.
Colours - Unfinished cedar has richly textured grain with colours ranging from mellow ambers, reddish cinnamons and rich sienna browns. Its warm coloring is complimented by a uniform, fine-grained texture with a satin luster.
Usages - Cedar is ideal for siding, decking, moulding, windows, doors, posts, beams, paneling outdoor projects, cladding, interiors and saunas.
Easy finishing - Because cedar is virtually pitch and resin free, the wood easily accepts a range of finishes, from fine oils and stains, to solid coatings and paint.
Natural preservative - Cedar contains natural preservatives that resist moisture, decay and insect damage.
Aroma - Cedar's unique aroma comes from naturally occurring thujaplicins in its heartwood. These compounds are toxic to decay-causing fungi and preserve the wood to give it long lasting appeal.
Acoustic insulation - Acoustic properties of cedar walls and ceilings provide sound insulation necessary to quiet rooms.
Architectural design- Cedar compliments any architectural design - from turn-of-the-century to contemporary.
