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.
Manufactured with strict quality standards, so the profile matches exactly from one piece to the next
100% natural product, it doesnt require any special handling, extra health protection, or pose any cleanup problems
Western red cedar is easy to finish with solid, oil-based stains and clear penetrating sealers
With its low density and high proportion of air spaces, western red cedar is the best thermal insulator among the commonly available softwood species and is far superior to brick, concrete, and steel
Freedom from pitch and resin makes it an excellent base for all types of paints and stains
I have found over the years the stores products have not been improving in quality but running in the opposite direction. Perhaps
their buyers are cutting costs buy retailing slightly inferior products to maintain price controls. Everything from the RYOB tool sets
which are garbage to warped wet lumber at limited sizing.
To me the retail giant has turned into the wall-mart of construction products. I have decided to invest my time and project
costs working with smaller outlets that pride themselves on quality construction products even if it means working with
several outlets. As a architect I don't have time to return inferior products when I can avoid that by upping my costs to
save time given my time and that of my clients is priceless.
Then final point I will close with is the stores service has slid way down and I found it so difficult and frustrating just getting
the attention of someone on the floor and forget about using the phone to find help something I would expect more of given
this these are Canadian owned store chain. Service in the US is brutal as a rule as it is not a service orientated retail nation, but
but Canada used to be known for good service.
At this rate I do not see a bright future for home depot I for one will not use the store for anything anymore.
