Japanese Cedar

Timber Cladding

Japanese Cedar is a true rustic timber cladding. Exhibiting warmth and character unique to this species, Japanese Cedar suits rustic-style projects looking for a traditional, earthern, natural finish. Left to naturally age Japanese Cedar will weather to an even silver patina. Adding one of our bespoke natural timber oil coatings will enhance the natural tones and add durability against the harsh New Zealand climate.
