You are able to find cedar wood for sale which can be used to complete a wide variety of projects around your home. Cedar timbers are often used as wall supports, beams, and joists in the construction of a brand new home. Due to the durability of the wood, it provides a uniform texture that is easy to cut, saw, and nail, and to attach other components to during the construction process. When being used for construction purposes, you will want to make sure the wood has been properly treated against rot, decay, and insects.
Cedar may also be used for exterior applications for the construction of your new home. This wood can be turned into roofing shingles, as well as siding. When used in an exterior setting, you want to make sure to use the heartwood, as it has natural extractives that are toxic to decay, causing fungi. Building codes across the country do permit the use of the heartwood without preservative treatments, as long as they are used in exterior applications. However, if you want to preserve the natural appearance and finish of your wood, you should seal the wood using an approved product, such as a clear coat with UV protection.
Other applications where people use cedar wood are to build decks, patios, railings, and fences.
