British cedar can be left untreated but will also take a good quality treatment, the fine sawn finish gives greater cover when applying treatment.
We believe our feather edge cladding is unrivalled in its quality and versatility.
We offer all our customers as part of our philosophy of "looking after our customers" a feather edge board that has a very special feature - one face of the board is a SAWN finish while the opposite face has a FINE SAWN finish, this gives our customers the choice of a "Rustic Sawn look" or a more "Contemporary Smooth Look". Furthermore if you intend on treating your timber the smooth side will be a more accepting face to treat. If you have ever tried coating a sawn finish you will know how long it takes and how much treatment it takes. The smooth face finish will save you time and money.
We believe we are the only saw mill or in fact retailer of feather edge cladding that offers this feature and above all at no extra cost to our customers.
