Whats so special about Cedar?
Our northern white cedar protects your log home’s interior against heat and cold better than any other type of commonly used wood. Many other builders use pine logs. Traditional pine logs have 2.5 times more water content than Cedar logs. The large amount of moisture in pine can lead to a number of problems like cracking, splitting, shrinkage, setting, air seepage and rot after your home is built.
- Highest degree of energy efficiency
- Decay and rot resistant
- 8 times longer life than pine
- Natually insect repellent
- Weighs 20% less than pine
