Cedar Red Wood Cladding Is The Perfect Exterior For Your Garden Room
28th July 2022
A garden room should ideally enhance the appearance of its surroundings which is why choosing the right exterior finish is so important. Here at Modern Garden Rooms, most of our rooms come with stunning cedar red cladding and we are going to look at why we chose this material right now…
There is no denying that this finish looks sleek, stylish and also rustic all at once making cedar red wood cladding a perfect choice for a building like a garden room. The western red cedar timber we choose gives a warm and vibrant feel to the building. This will gradually fade to shades of grey, blending in with its surroundings. However, there are products that you can use to maintain its colour (more on this below).
Cedar is an excellent insulator which not only helps to keep your garden room warm in the winter but it will also help to reduce your heating bills. Both of which are ideal for those who are eco-conscious and want to reduce their carbon footprint.
A good quality cedar red wood has fewer knots than other types of wood, meaning that there is less opportunity for rain/water to penetrate it. This makes Cedar red wood cladding inexpensive to maintain whilst providing years of service, especially with our mixed UK weather.
Cedar red wood cladding can be painted to give you a different look, it can be stained and can also be sanded back to provide a more classic rustic aesthetic. This means you can get the look you want quite easily without damaging this exterior finish and can change it up if you ever want to.
By choosing a good quality wood like this cedar red wood cladding you can feel rest assured that this is an investment and you will have a low-maintenance garden room for many years to come. Opting for a cheaper counterpart may seem like a cost-effective idea at the time of the build but we can guarantee that this will in fact cost you more in the long term as it may need regular maintenance or even replacing in just a few short years. With red cedarwood, you really do get what you pay for.
