What’s the secret behind Canadian Western Red Cedar Cladding’s popularity?
Instant prices for cladding and secure online checkout. It’s obvious that the building industry is picking up again. Sales of Western Red Cedar Cladding are climbing at a fantastic rate. Why is it so popular?
In short, Canadian Western Red is good value, looks great and can last a lifetime.
Cedar, a softwood, is highly resistant to decay, as well as resistant to splitting and movement once fitted.
Canadian Western Red's Colour Properties
When first installed, this timber cladding is a warm reddish-brown colour. If left untreated, it turns the classic silver colour over time. It is these colour properties and the end finish that help make cedar wood products popular for a range of projects.
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!
Our Quality Cedar Range
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 2.13m (7') and longer.
Western Red Cedar Prices
For the benefits it offers, this timber is very competitively priced. If you click the price comparison button, you’ll see that there are cheaper timbers available, but none of them have the durability of the cedar.

British Western Red Cedar vs Canadian Western Red Cedar
Distinguishing between British and Canadian western red cedar is evident in the example below. When selecting cladding products for your project, it's essential to consider these differences. Both are high-quality wood products, but they originate from different locations, with the British cedar having a less pronounced reddish hue.

Our timber is imported straight from sawmills on the continent. Our usual lead times are therefore 25 to 35 working days.
Delivery cost varies by location. Please

Our delivery lorries visit different parts of the country on different days, so once your order is ready we will work with you to arrange a delivery day for when one of our lorries is in your project area. We will always arrange the delivery day in advance with you.
We deliver weekdays Monday to Friday between the hours of 8am to 5pm. Our delivery vehicles will have multiple jobs on them which can affect the delivery time to you, depending on factors such as traffic and how long it takes to offload the previous jobs. The driver will call you in advance with an estimated time of arrival to make sure you'll be there for your Western Red Cedar product.
We use an external haulage company to make our deliveries and because many customers have forklift trucks for offloading, as standard, the delivery lorries don't have crane arms on them (it's much more expensive to hire crane lorries, and we try to keep costs down so we can keep our timber prices low). Therefore, on the day of delivery we ask you to have enough person-power available, or offloading equipment, to lift the pieces off the lorry. We will arrange in advance with you when you will receive your delivery. We can certainly quote for separate delivery on a lorry with a crane if required.
The ordering process
After placing your order securely online you receive an email confirming the items you have ordered. When your order has arrived at iWood HQ and is ready for dispatch, we will give you a call to arrange delivery.
