Canadian Western Red's Colour
When first installed, this timber cladding is a warm reddish-brown colour. If left untreated, it turns the classic silver colour over a number of years, depending on how much direct sunlight it receives.
Red Cedar's Service Life
With regards to durability, Red Cedar, without any form of treatment, has been known to last up to 60 years!
iWood’s Western Red Cedar is machined to order. The grade, “Clear and Better” is the highest grade of cedar that we can source. There are virtually no knots and if there are any, they will only be small.
These profiles are available
to buy above
iWood offers 10 different cladding profiles.
From our range, the Tongue and Groove machined profiles are the most popular timber cladding, particularly ICW1, closely followed by Rainshield. The machined profiles give a modern look to a traditional material. The machined profiles are supplied in lengths between 2 and 4 metres.
The fresh sawn Feather Edge profiles allow for your choice of overlap and are therefore the most flexible at the time of fitting. This cladding is supplied in lengths of 2.44m (8') and longer.
