Valued for its beauty, stability, durability and thermal efficiency – Cedar has remained a species of choice for external claddings for centuries. Its durability has become legendary amongst gardeners with Cedar Greenhouses and Victorian home-owners with original Cedar conservatories. Cedar is classified as“Class 2 Durable”by BS EN 350. Furthermore BS 8417 provides for an expected 60 year service life if sapwood is excluded. Today, these properties of Cedar, coupled with certified sustainable credentials, continue to make it a favoured modern construction material. It blends effortlessly with other facade materials to give a low-maintenance, contemporary appearance to many current building projects.
