Cedar Lumber

Prairie Cedar carries a full selection of cedar boards, dimensional lumber, timbers, solid wood profiles, sidings and accessories in all major widths, lengths and grades.

Fir Timbers

Douglas Fir is often used as a structural lumber. It is a tight knotted and close-grained general purpose wood for framing lumber in residential, light commercial, multi story and industrial construction.

Pine

Finish your interior space with natural pine Tongue and Groove boards. For exteriors,  the pine Log Cabin siding can add a truly unique finish, creating a Farm House, Cottage or Rustic Cabin look and feel.

Fencing Materials & Gate Hardware

Cedar wood is extremely durable, and stands up amazingly well in a wide range of climatic conditions, which means a cedar fence will outlast less resilient woods, such as spruce, pine, fir or treated wood. Straight grain and natural oils within the wood further enhance dimensional stability and deter rot or damage from watering.

Deck Materials

Western Red Cedar looks after itself, resists moisture decay, and keeps the integrity of your deck intact for years to come. It also keeps your deck surface cool on a hot day; yet, doesn’t feel cold on a cool night.

Deck Railings

A good railing design can enhance your deck, provide safety, be used to incorporate protection from prevailing wind and sun and is often used to add a level of privacy to your outdoor living space.

Tongue & Groove

Western Red Cedar tongue and groove siding is widely used for its good looks and versatility. It can be installed horizontally, vertically or diagonally, each method giving a distinctly different look. Tongue and groove siding often comes with a smooth face; however, is also made with a rough finish.

Sidings & Trim

Cedar is the perfect partner for stone, slate, brick, and other natural building materials. No other building material reflects such a true embodiment of the natural environment. For structures in which the strength, stability and the appearance of exposed wood elements are important, cedar offers long term durability and performance.

Roofing & Accessories

In today’s era of machine-made synthetics, cedar’s natural warmth and visually satisfying richness are a timeless quality that continues to make Western Red Cedar shingles and shakes popular with discriminating architects, builders and homeowners.

Saunas & Accessories

Saunas have been used for thousands of years and are still popular today. A sauna can help people to unwind and relax, and has other health benefits.

Sweating has long been used as a therapy. In Finland, saunas have been used for thousands of years, 1 in 3 Finns use them. In the United States (U.S.), there are thought to be over a million saunas.

Main benefits of saunas are for relaxation and cardiovascular health.
