Western Red Cedar is a popular and strong 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 despite exposure to cold, heat, rain and other harsh environmental factors common in Australian weather.
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.
Western Red Cedar is visually beautiful with rich and inviting colours from deep, soft browns to soft caramels tinged with red.It has a fine texture and straight grain with growth rings often visible. The durable yet soft properties let the material take very well to being stained and polished.
Furthermore, Western Red Cedar’s natural preservatives provide resistance to fungus and insects. The wood is protected against termites, woodborers and fungus that can dramatically affect alternative timber options. Western Red Cedar is a stylish and practical material option with natural appeal, superior structural performance and elemental protection.
