Why Choose Cedar?
There are many different types of cedar, and while they all share similar benefits, their appearance, texture and other aesthetics attributes vary by type. Western Red Cedar is the most widely available cedar in the United States, growing prolifically along the West Coast of North America. Western Red Cedar can be recognized by its pink to reddish color which is sometimes intermixed with broad bands of amber, cream, and brown. It is straight-grained, dimensionally stable, and naturally decay resistant. Western Red Cedar is commonly used to build in areas where humidity, temperature, and cracking are common problems.
Cedar doesn't shrink, swell or warp like typical lumber, even under severe changes in humidity and temperature. It naturally resists rot over time - upwards of 40 years! - and is more resistant to insects than other woods.
Cedar is also lightweight, allowing you to add a large cupola to your roof without adding significant weight. And because cedar has a low density, less heat is transported through the wood. This means less heat escapes in the winter and cool air is contained during the summer.
Cedar wood can be left unfinished, but its durability is greatly enhanced by regular applications of sealer or paint. Because cedar is pitch and resin-free, it is easy to stain or paint and can hold a wide range of colors.
