Western red cedar is a popular and durable timber that is sought after due to its beauty and durability. It is a timber that remains stable under most weather conditions and is not prone to shrinking or swelling. This means it holds its shape and ensures longevity.
As a low-density timber that offers very good thermal insulation, it helps with heating and cooling efficiency, reducing electricity costs and making a home more environmentally friendly and sustainable.
Its versatility enables it to be used for both internal and external applications, as it is visually beautiful with rich and inviting colours. It has a fine texture and straight grain with growth rings often vis- ible. The durable yet soft properties let the material take very well to being stained and polished. The wood’s natural preservatives provide resistance to fungus and insects.
Western Red Cedar is a stylish and practical option with natural appeal, superior structural performance and elemental protection. For more information contact Glassplace on 6862 2346 or visit the showroom at 4 Clarke Street in Parkes.
