We have an enormous inventory of cedar and related products, as well as multiple finishing and drying lines to give you the greatest combination of classic styles and low-maintenance performance.
Western Red Cedar is superior in its ability to resist thermal conductivity more than any other commonly available softwood. At 12% moisture content it has an R value of 1.35 per inch of thickness, which is 8 times better than concrete, 400 times better than steel, and 2,000 times that of aluminum.
Western Red Cedar has very good sound dampening properties and is superior to most other sidings and paneling.
Western Red Cedar has a vast growth range and – like other North American softwoods – is replanted at a rate 7 times that of harvest.
Do any research on Western Red Cedar and other North American softwoods and you will discover what those of us in the construction business already know: wood is the most renewable resource for the construction of just about any part of your home. Cedar boasts a far superior “Green” story than any of its plastic, steel, aluminum, or concrete replacements.
