Use cedar wood
for its long-lasting beauty.
No other softwood has the rich beauty or long-lasting performance
of cedar wood. The wood's cellular structure creates interior
air spaces that give it an insulation value higher than most woods.
Cedar also has excellent sound suppression and absorption qualities.
Use cedar wood for its dimensional stability.
Cedar wood acts like a sponge; when it absorbs moisture it swells
and when it loses moisture it shrinks. Cedar wood has thinner
cell walls which shrink and swell less than other woods, so Cedar
is less likely to warp, split, cup or check.
Use cedar wood for its natural durability.
Cedar contains natural oils that act as preservatives to help
the wood resist insect attack and decay. Cedar is also a dimensionally
stable wood that lies flat and stays straight. Properly finished
and maintained, Cedar ages gracefully and endures for many years.
Use cedar wood simply because it is
a pleasure to use.
Cedar wood is a favorite with builders because it is lightweight
but strong. It is easy to saw, nail and drill. Cedar wood has
little or no messy pitch or resins.
