Why Canadian Red Cedar?
This material was chosen because: Western red cedar contains natural oils that act as preservatives to help the wood resist insect attack and decay. Cedar is also a dimensionally stable wood that lies flat and stays straight even as it ages.
Properly finished and maintained, Western red cedar ages gracefully and endures for many years.Under a microscope, a cross-section of Western red cedar reveals the secret of its exceptional insulating ability: nearly ten million air-filled cells in every cubic inch. Western red cedar’s uniform cell structure gives it 12 times the insulating value of stone or concrete.
