Cedar cladding is a very popular type of external siding for buildings that is made from the wood of a cedar tree. As a south west England external timber cladding supplier, we stock both Canadian Cedar Cladding, and Homegrown UK Cedar Cladding. We know, therefore, that Cedar cladding has many benefits that make it an ideal choice for those who are looking for a durable, attractive, and low-maintenance option for their home or building project. Let’s take a look at just some of the benefits of using cedar cladding.
Cedar cladding is highly durable. Cedar is a naturally rot-resistant wood, which means that it will last for many years without needing to be replaced. Cedar cladding is also resistant to insect damage and decay, making it an excellent choice for homes in areas with high humidity or where termites are a problem. Our imported Canadian Cedar Cladding from Canada and the Coastal Pacific North West of the USA is naturally resistant to decay and insect attack, but is also stable with low-shrinkage, as well as being resistant to warping and twisting. This makes it a great material to work with and means that Canadian Cedar Cladding is going to stay looking good and protecting your home or other building for many years.
Cedar Cladding – Rich Colour Giving Aesthetic Appeal
Cedar cladding is also very attractive. The rich color and grain of cedar wood add beauty and curb appeal to any home. Cedar cladding can be stained or left natural, depending on the look you are trying to achieve. Our Canadian Cedar Cladding has a very attractive, rich red/brown colour and, over time and with the effects of weathering, Western Red Cedar goes an attractive silver grey colour.
Also, cedar external cladding is low-maintenance. Unlike other types of cladding, cedar cladding does not need to be painted or sealed on a regular basis. A yearly cleaning with a hose or pressure washer is all that is needed to keep cedar cladding looking like new.
Not only does Canadian Cedar Cladding look good, for example, but lasts a very long time, making a cost effective choice over time. For example, the heart wood will give a service life in excess of 60 years out of ground contact.
Cedar Cladding’s Benefits Give It Enduring Popularity
If you are looking for a durable, beautiful, and low-maintenance cladding option for your home, cedar cladding is an excellent choice. The natural rot resistance and insect resistance of cedar make it a great choice for homes in any climate, and the rich color and grain add curb appeal to any home.
