Unlike other softwoods, Western Red Cedar has its own preservative oils that prevent it from rotting. Cedar is commonly used for Decking, Cladding and Roof Shingles, providing Durability and Stability to any exterior project. To maintain this colour it is best to apply a liberal coat of Messmers UV Plus Oil for timber. If you prefer to let it weather down then you will get various shades of silvery grey. The tannin bleed or rusty coloured stains that you see on buildings typically commercial ones are as a result of the Cedar getting wet. This does not affect its performance and can be avoided by oiling and sealing the cedar.

Fixing and Finishing Methods

Face Fixings:
Simply screw through the face of the board into the sub-frame, you can then purchase plug caps to go over each hole to create a perfect finish.

Board Spacing:
This will be created with which ever profile you choose to go with.

Joist Spacing:
We recommend 400mm centre to centre joist spacing for a standard area, projects may vary.

End Grain Sealer:
When the timber starts to dry out it loses the moisture quicker through the ends of the timber hence the characteristics of grain checking and opening up. Clear wax sealer seals the timber ends and slows down the moisture loss to a more controlled process, thus preventing this cracking. This is especially useful because cutting off the damaged ends not only becomes an expensive waste of timber, but may mean the difference between having the right length of timber for your project or it being several centimetres too short.

We recommend using our Messmers End Grain Wax Sealer to prevent the boards from grain checking.

Oil Finish:
Oiling the boards will help you to retain the dark rich colours within the boards. This product contains UV filters to delay the silvering process that strong sunlight causes in all timbers. We recommend our Messmers UV Plus Oil.
