Need Cedar Lumber for an Upcoming Project?

Cedar lumber is a classic in home renovation trends and is rapidly becoming one of the most popular home construction and repair materials in America due to its high quality. From the softwoods family of lumber, cedar lumber can be harvested with long timber lengths and is prized for its straight grain and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Furthermore, Cedar timber is typically free from pitch and has a natural resistance to decay. Known for its durable strength and impeccable quality, Cedar is the complete package for just about any project.

Cedar is light compared to many other kinds of wood like oak, has a low density to provide better insulation, and is easy to finish. The color of a given Cedar board can vary, adding more aesthetic versatility to this material. The variety of options from Western Red Cedar to Alaskan Yellow Cedar means Cedar timbers are an ideal choice for any building project.

If you want to purchase Cedar lumber or beams for your upcoming project, Ring’s End can deliver to any in-network home, business, or job site so you don’t even have to make a trip to the store. Check out our full inventory of lumber options here!

Types of Cedar Board: Consider Why You Need Cedar Lumber

Before purchasing your Cedar lumber at the store, consider what type of job you need the timbers for and scope out the sizing and quantity. You’ll save time by purchasing the right amount according to pricing and availability. Cedar lumber can be used for deck projects like decking boards, garden fencing, walls and other house-related structural needs, flooring, sign creation, and more.

A few of our popular types of Cedar board include:

Dimensional Lumber

Cedar dimensional lumber is a common choice for building. Any type of dimensional lumber is simply cut down the predefined and standard sizes. It’s what construction workers refer to when they talk about a “2 x 4” or “2 x 8” board.

Furthermore, timbers are smoothed or planed down (their rough surfaces are sanded away) to make them ready for immediate application. Cedar makes a fantastic choice due to its durability, insulation, and structural stability. Special order from our store here and you'll see for yourself.

Cedar Fencing

Many homeowners use Cedar for fencing material. Since Cedar has a long life and an elegant natural appearance, it’s a perfect choice for increasing the property value of your home or constructing a long-lasting fence to keep your backyard secure. Cedar lattice panels are one of the most popular fencing patterns and styles since they allow you to maintain some level of privacy while allowing wind circulation.

Cedar Siding

Cedar lumber can also be used for siding. Cedar is actually an ideal choice because of its low density and high thermal insulating value. Ring’s End stocks premium-grade number one siding shingles in both red and white cedar in sizes from 16 in. to 24 in. Western Red Cedar in particular is the best thermal insulator you can find from the Native American softwood species. Windows, building exteriors, and other projects can all benefit from Cedar siding.

Cedar Lumber Species

Western Red Cedar and Other Wood Species

Cedar hardwood, dimensional lumber, and more come in a few different species. Species can affect prices, width, and load weight for delivery.

    Western Red Cedar – The most common and available species of Cedar on the market.
    Alaskan Yellow Cedar – Another popular Cedar choice that is technically a species of Cypress wood.
    Inland Red Cedar – An offshoot of Western Red Cedar that grows in slightly different locations.
    White Cedar - Also called incense cedar due to its fragrant smell.

Of all four types, people typically choose Western Red Cedar lumber for its excellent building and construction quality. Not only is it beautiful, with a brown/red color that doesn’t seem to bleed like other types of lumber, but Western Red Cedar is also incredibly bug resistant, so there’s less of a chance of termites or other pests damaging a building.

Additionally, Western Red Cedar lumber is perfect for mixing with stains, paints, and sealers. This allows homeowners an unprecedented level of finish selection during a DIY deck or flooring project. All in all, Western Red Cedar is durable, lightweight, and very easy to work with.

A Note About Cedar Lumber Sizing Before Checkout

One key thing to remember is that Cedar lumber is oversized compared to pine and lumber of other logged or salvaged wood species. For instance, 1x Cedar boards are typically harvested with thicknesses of 7/8.” 2x board sizes and higher are usually closer to full measurements. For example, a Cedar board measuring 2 x 8 will be almost exactly 2” x 8.” On the other hand, 1x Cedar boards are usually available in increments from 2" up to 16."

Bottom line: check the sizing of Cedar timbers and boards carefully before purchasing to avoid accidentally buying the wrong sizes of lumber pieces. Interested in delivery after you shop?
