Western Red Cedar
The Western Red Cedar lies flat and straight, and is a lightweight product that is resistant to cracks and checks, which is one of the predominant reasons why this wood is preferred for many home remodeling and repair projects. The wood is heat adaptive and is also highly conducive to thermal efficiency. Because it is bacteria-resistant and fungus-resistance, and because the Western Red Cedar wood is about 80% that of the strength of the Oak tree, it is regarded as one of the most sought after and desirable wood products to use for outdoor building furniture and furniture projects.
The Western Red Cedar contains a natural oil substance supply that protects it against wood rotting and wood decaying. These natural preservatives in the oil also make it an excellent accommodating furniture product for those climates, which are moist or humid. You’ll likely find products like hot tubs and saunas to be a popular item for this wood species material. The cedar is also a highly selected choice for closet liners and storage chests because of the aroma. The distinct cedar smell is attributed to thujaplicins, which are naturally occurring organic compounds. The solution emanates a pleasant smell to humans, but acts as a repellent to wood pests like moths and other insects.
Over time, cedar will not bow or sag or show furniture wear, unlike plastic or resin furniture, which quickly shows premature wearing and aging. Cedar furniture promises to hold its shape and attractive appearance season after season, with very little maintenance. Periodic, safe cleaning is all that’s required to ensure that the cedar remains in good condition. That attention to detail and the care placed in designed and manufacturing the cedar furniture is what makes it a healthier, safer and more natural alternative for outdoor patio furniture and dining sets.
The Western Red Cedar has unlimited possibilities and solutions for many outdoors wooden products, including siding and fences, planters, screens, shelters and patio decks. For indoor uses, the cedar is also effectively used in kitchens, bathrooms and other high moisture areas like saunas as a visual complement, but also as a functional product that wards off and protects the wood against rotting and cracking issues.
As an interior complement, cedar also offers other benefits that make it even more valuable. This includes a natural insulation to interior spaces that’s generated with the wood’s cell structure. For buildings that contain featured cedar paneling, there is a two-fold beneficial purpose. First, it’s aesthetically pleasing, and it’s also highly functional and rewarding. Its interior insulation abilities give rooms and spaces the ability to stay at moderate temperatures throughout the year, meaning cooler summers and warmer winters.
