Please see the below chart for a complete range of construction cedar products that we normally carry.
Standard vs Premium Cedar
Our construction cedar is divided into two categories – standard and premium.
The standard grade cedar comes good one face and two edges, and allows for some wane on the back side of the material (i.e. it’s not completely smooth on the back side). Often this grade of material is used in applications where you won’t see the back side of the wood, like on a deck).
The premium grade comes good four sides. This is typically used in applications where all sides of the wood will be visible, like on a pergola.
Other Cedar Products
At The WoodSource our lattice is custom made for us and is second to none in quality. Made out of clear kiln dried cedar it is free of staples on one face and is extra thick. It comes in three levels of privacy in both diagonal and square and in 4x8 and 1x8 sheets. See below for our complete selection.
