What makes Real Cedar the right building material for your next project? Well, for starters, this highly revered, durable wood is naturally resistant to rot, decay and insect attacks, which means anything you build with it will last longer and require less maintenance. There’s more:

Beauty

Aesthetically, there really is no substitute for the natural beauty of Real Cedar. Imbued with decidedly crisp, yet superbly rich, tonal properties, Real Cedar can create sublime outdoor sanctuaries, embolden traditional home decor, provoke cutting-edge architecture and inspire innovative interiors. Imagine – all that dynamism packed into one beautiful building material! No wonder Real Cedar is a designer’s dream come true.

Versatility

Western red cedar is pitch and resin-free. Which means it’s ideal for accepting and holding a wide range of beautiful finishes including elegant dark stains, shabby chic bleaches, traditional solid colors and naturally beautiful semi-transparent. Real Cedar also offers a wide range of lumber dimensions, surface textures and grades. No matter what your desired effect is, Real Cedar’s got the wood for you.

Sustainability

Independent studies prove that when it comes to environmental performance, natural wood is superior to synthetic products in every way. While other building materials generate greenhouse gasses, western red cedar actually removes greenhouse gasses from the atmosphere. And unlike brick, cement and composites, Real Cedar is renewable and biodegradable. Plus, Real Cedar is sourced from the most sustainably managed forests in the world.

What Can I Build Out of Cedar?

Siding

Western Red Cedar is free of pitch and resin, which means it takes to stains, oils and finishes exceptionally well. So your siding color options are pretty much limitless. The same goes for the style options. So for example, you can go for the warm traditional feel of layered bevel or you can streamline your home’s look with some super sleek, tongue & groove siding or you can get creative with your own board & batten pattern – the list goes on and on. And then there’s texture – with Real Cedar, you can work with a clear grade for a crisp, contemporary look. Or choose knotty for some added rustic charm – trying achieving that look with a synthetic product!

Decking

Whether you’re a contractor working to a tight deadline or a DIY renovator with no set completion date, you don’t want to be messing around with materials that make your decking project harder. That’s why so many home improvers like working with Western Red Cedar lumber. It lies flat and straight, so it’s super easy to fit in place. Plus, this sturdy and structurally solid wood is surprisingly light, so it’s easy to lug around your site – and less strenuous lifting means more time to enjoy the creative process. After all, building decks shouldn’t be a pain in the neck (and we mean that both literally and figuratively).

Outdoor

Imagine creating your own outdoor sanctuary. What would that look like? Would it be a tranquil retreat where you and your partner could decompress after a hard day’s work with a glass of wine? If so, Real Cedar is a solid choice for building a customized deck that feels like a graceful extension of your home. The warm undertones and malleable, yet incredibly strong, properties of Real Cedar are perfect for furnishing patios with personalized features such as curved railings, garden benches and arched pergolas.

Indoor

Turning houses into warm livable homes that last a lifetime is what Western Red Cedar does best. In terms of versatility, no other building materials compare – i.e. it’s not just for lake country interiors and fans of contemporary West Coast design anymore. True, outfitting your home in floor-to-ceiling knotty Real Cedar remains a classic approach to architecture, but there are plenty of innovative ways to incorporate wood in smaller doses with the same great effect.

Timbers

In terms of architectural prowess, few building materials have as much beautifying muscle as exposed Real Cedar beams. These timbers can give instant street cred to industrial-chic lofts, add rustic charm to chalet-inspired decor, and compliment clean lines in ultra-modern settings and highlight the classical elegance of a traditional home. But Real Cedar timber isn’t just easy on the eyes. It also boasts renowned structural characteristics, making it the ideal building material for landscape design, construction as well as all those aforementioned indoor applications.
