By machining cedar on site, we are able to manage board quality and ensure that the timber is of suitable moisture content.
It also allows us to cut, within reason, to your required size (width and thickness), although this depends on the raw material available. We use number 2 clear grade cedar, which allows for sound knots.
Please note that decking boards may be supplied over length, so you will need to ensure that your fitter has the correct tools on site to cut them down.
Our cedar boards can vary in colour from a very pale through to a light orange, giving an airy, natural appearing look that will blend sympathetically with most surroundings.
Cedar boards are best installed using stainless steel fixings . Cedar is naturally very resinous and oily as such, it doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. To keep your cedar looking fresh, Cedar Oil can be applied every season.
