Immacualte Look

Western Red Cedar comes in a variety of charming colours, ranging from cream, dark chocolate-brown to salmon pink. Cedar creates a clean look; suiting decking projects from traditional, to contemporary.

Handling

At approximately 390kg per m3, Western Red Cedar has a low density making deck construction easy to handle and to work with.

Durability

Western Red Cedar has a long, maintenance free service life, due to naturally occurring compounds called Thujaplicins and water-soluble phenolics that act as preservatives. Western Red Cedar is classed as durable under BS EN 350-2 Class 2.

Stability

Cedar decking is very dimensionally stable, due to its low density and low shrinkage factor. As a result, it resists warping, twisting and checking.

Fire Retardant for Timber

When specified, fire retardant can be applied to Western Red Cedar, to comply with Building Regulations. NON-COM can be applied under controlled factory conditions in a vacuum pressure timber impregnation plant. Alternatively, HR Prof can be applied on site.

Weathering or Finishing

In the correct conditions, Western Red Cedar will weather to a silver-grey, if left untreated.
Although naturally durable, Cedar can be finished for protection against the elements. This will keep it looking consistent on all elevations of your project. Mill Works can advise on different options for protecting your timber.

Fixings

Stainless-steel decking screws should be used because natural oils in the timber have a corrosive effect on ferrous metals. Millworks recommend our 63mm Trimmed Head decking screws for a clinical look and a secure fixing.
