Real Cedar Outdoor

Outer Beauty – Dare to Dream

Imagine creating your own outdoor sanctuary. What would that look like? Would it be a tranquil retreat where you and your partner could decompress after a hard day’s work with a glass of wine? If so, Real Cedar is a solid choice for building a customized deck that feels like a graceful extension of your home. The warm undertones and malleable, yet incredibly strong, properties of Real Cedar are perfect for furnishing patios with personalized features such as curved railings, garden benches and arched pergolas.

Family Fun

Cedar Outdoor Pavilion Of course, peace and quiet may seem like a tall order at this stage in your life. In which case, a deck that’s durable enough for a lifetime of rollicking family BBQs may be more to your liking. Again, Western Red Cedar is the wood for you. It’s 100 per cent natural and eco-friendly, which should offer peace of mind when you start hearing the pitter-patter of little feet on your new decking. After all, Real Cedar feels soft to the touch and never overheats; whereas; synthetic decks can feel scratchy and have a tendency to get disturbingly hot. Plus, our wood has natural preservative elements, so your open-air family room will last as long as the memories you create on it.

Superior Studios

Cedar Outdoor PavilionIf it’s a detached garden room you desire, you’ll want a gorgeous sunlit oasis that reflects your personal taste and inspires creativity. Look no further. Western Red Cedar is the best-suited building material for this purpose. With unparalleled beauty, WRC can enhance every architectural aesthetic. So, for example, if you want a quaint art studio that exudes rustic cottage charm, don’t underestimate the retro appeal of Real Cedar shingles.

On the other hand, if you want a modern, professional looking workspace for your home business, WRC’s consistent density and ability to lay flat is tailor-made for creating crisp, clean surfaces. Just think – with an office environment this inspiring, you’ll never be late for work again!

Shaping and Shading

Now, if want to simply define your slice of outdoor heaven and create a shaded escape from the sun, a western red cedar pergola is the perfect way to go. Conversely, if you want to seamlessly merge your outdoor area to your home, Real Cedar siding gives you a lot of bang for your buck. It’s more cost effective than synthetic materials and infinitely more stylish. People take notice when you make Western Red Cedar a part of your outdoor living space.
