Timber Focus SertiWOOD Canadian Western Red Cedar is a popular wood for use for cladding and landscaping applications. We supply premium western red cedar cladding for exterior use, including batten screen, cladding, slatted and contemporary fencing. The 18 x 38mm x 1.83 metre 21-piece pack of premium Western Red Cedar is planed with rounded edges and has a planed surface on all four sides. It is a clear-grade, slowly grown old-growth wood that is extremely durable and is, therefore, one of the best available on the market today. For posts we recommend you use standard brown treated posts if you are using the battens for fencing. As a good guide for screen or batten contemporary design to cover a 6′ x 6′ or 1.83mtr fence or area you need 1.5 bundles per panel.
If you decide to let the Cedar naturally weather, it will turn an attractive, silvery-grey colour. For a more contemporary look, you can choose from a modern range of wood tones, or just use an oil to sustain its golden-brown colour. For projects involving above-ground fencing and cladding, no additional treatments are needed.
If you are considering fixing cladding or fencing, we recommend Timber Cladding Stainless Steel A2 Countersunk Screws or Annular Ring Stainless Steel Nail. They are can be ordered easily from our online shop, in varying lengths depending on your requirements.
