Product Overview

Western Red Cedar is unique and prestigious softwood with outstanding physical characteristics. It offers a rare combination of aesthetic appeal and durability, thanks to its natural decay-resistant composition. Western Red Cedar's superior dimensional stability means that, when properly installed and maintained, project components are likely to stay straight and flat and resist warping and cupping - season after season. In addition, cedar is easy to cut, saw and nail with common tools.

Astronomical Cost
Bought 9 of these boards at the beginning of the year for $25-26 a piece. Quality was pretty good though 2 boards were warped slightly. Here we are 9 months later and prices have continued to sky rocket to $38 PER board. Not buying any more any time soon

    Though the process of ordering and picking up was easy and streamlined, the actual product was mediocre. Most of my boards were at least mildly warped with one board being moderately warped. Quality was only so-so... and for an extremely high price compared to lumbar costs 2 years ago!
