With its unique natural preservative, cedar is an outstanding building material for fences, decks, pergolas and outdoor structures – especially where moisture, humidity, and drastic temperature changes are a factor.
Because of its real natural beauty, cedar is often used to create dramatic entryways, exterior post and timber features, trim effects, and accents. Choosing cedar ensures that the special details of your home withstand the test of time.
Wood structures are healthier for occupants and require less energy to build and operate. Not only do trees store carbon and produce oxygen, wood products extend the cycle by storing the carbon dioxide for decades.
Prairie Cedar was founded by a builder who understood the unique properties of western red cedar and the many practical applications for cedar in our demanding Southern Alberta climate. Today, we continue this tradition by sourcing mainly those cedar products that do the best job possible for their given application.
Our staff is trained and WRCLA certified—and to help you get the most out of your experience working with western red cedar, you can rely on us for accurate information and insights on all aspects of building with cedar.
