Why Cedar?

Cedar is used when great durability is required to endure exposure to all kinds of weather. Cedar is very resistant to decay due to contained natural compounds called Thumaplicins. These compounds allow the wood from fallen trees to retain its properties for a century or more.

Cedar is dimensionally stable, which means that it lies flat, stays straight and is extremely resistant to warping which makes it very suitable in high moisture areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and saunas.

Cedar is the number one choice for outdoor patio and garden furniture because of the visual harmony with the landscape combined with stability and durability.

Cedar is also an excellent insulator. It has an insulation value higher than most woods and much higher than brick or concrete. Buildings which feature cedar paneling, ceiling and siding tend to stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Cedar also has excellent sound suppression and absorption qualities.

Cedar is a light weight wood that is easy to handle and craft for both the professional and the do-it-yourselfer.

Cedar can be finished with wood sealer, wood stains, wood oils, paint or left to naturally age. Properly finished and maintained cedar ages gracefully and endures for many years.
