About Western Red Cedar
Western Red Cedar originates from Canada. It is grown in an extremely eco friendly way with constant replanting of areas that are cut. The Canadians have been managing their woodlands in this way for many years.
The natural colour variation of Western Red Cedar is simply beautiful. Its colours vary form light honey tones through soft reds to dark brown. Within this range of colours there are also two and three tone swirling patterns of natural grain.
The reason that these colours stand out when used as a horizontal slatted fence is that between each slat of cedar there is a small gap. These shadow gaps separate the colours of Cedar framing them, this allows each individual colour to be appreciated. The strong lines of slatted fencing lift a garden space and create the perfect backdrop for planting.
The reason Cedar lasts so long outdoors is because it has a natural preservative oil within it that eliminates the need for further chemical treatments. This makes Cedar the perfect material to construct quality fencing. Many people prefer to allow their Cedar fencing to “naturally age” outdoors without any finish at all. Over time the colour will weather to a handsome silver-grey highlighted by darker streaks, and the grain of the wood will become slightly raised. Cedar is so resilient that it will survive outdoors with not treatment for over 50 years, it is these properties that attract architects and designers to use it for cladding buildings.
Some clients prefer the look of the warm colours of Cedar and opt to have the fencing panels treated to protect the colour. We recommend Textrol HES stain to protect and enhance the colour of your Cedar. Textrol HES is available to buy in our online shop. This enhances the natural colours of the Cedar panels and keeps them looking fresh as the day they were installed. Normally this stain would need to be refreshed every two to three years to keep the panels looking their best.
Western Red Cedar is lightweight, dimensionally stable, naturally resistant to splitting, cupping, and warping. Cedar is easy to handle, can be cut, shaped, and accepts screws easily. It remains flat and stays straight – Cedar warps little to none at all compared to other woods. This makes it perfect for constructing high quality fencing that will stand the test of time.
