Timber Blinds - Cedar
Western Red Cedar grows mainly in the wet areas of North West America where soils are rich and moisture laden air currents off the north pacific nourish their lush and fast re-growing forests.
Most cedar imported into this country originates in British Columbia, Canada. Western Red Cedar forests are predominantly well managed forests which provide a perpetual harvest. Cedar wood contains natural oils which help resist insect attack and decay. It is a dimensionally stable wood that ages gracefully and endures for many years.
In this age of energy concerns, the woods cellular structure give it an insulation value higher than most woods and much higher than brick or concrete. Cedar wood blinds help warm your house in winter and help keep it cool in summer.
Above all, cedar is a wood of exeptional beauty. No man made material can duplicate cedar's natural lustre and tones which range from light amber to deep honey brown.
