Known for its extremely fine, even grain and rich coloring, Western Red Cedar compliments any architectural style. For a casual look, knotty Cedar adds natural warmth and charm.
Used to add a bit of warmth and to bring a cohesive look from the interior of a space to the outdoors, installing Knotty Western Red Cedar tongue and groove on the ceilings inside the home, as well as in the home’s exterior soffits and ceilings is trending now. Combined with white walls, this look is perfect for a crisp, modern design.

Since Western Red Cedar is only grown in the Pacific Northwest, our products are sought out all over the US due to the quality, as well as pricing. To give our customers peace of mind, we are able to provide fire treatment to our Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir building materials, including Western Red Cedar shingles and shakes. The fire treating process we use has passed strict fire and weathering tests and complies with all building codes.
This stunning custom home was recently completed in Malibu, California. All the exterior Cedar cladding was fire treated prior to shipment. Note how the interior Western Red Cedar matches the exterior, even though the exterior has been treated. The process leaves no residue or noticeable difference in the color or texture of the Cedar.

Due to the unique nature of our business and the relationships we have developed with mills throughout the Pacific Northwest, we were able to match the architect’s spec for the custom milled clear, vertical grain, 1×6” Western Red Cedar “nickel gap” tongue & groove our customer was looking for to complete the exterior cladding. The fence around the property was constructed using 5 foot 1×6” clear, vertical grain Western Red Cedar boards. Not only did sourcing 5’ material save this client money on the material and shipping, but it also helped keep the boards super straight between the powder-coated aluminum posts. A real win, win!
