Western Red Cedar
Growing from Alaska all the way down to California, which includes British Columbia, Alberta as well as the states of Washington and Oregon, this majestic tree is emblematic of the Pacific West Coast. It provides a very high-quality wood, long recognized for advantages ranging from prestige to accessibility.
The Western red cedar (or Thuya de Lobb) is the ideal species for outdoor amenities and landscaping, such as terraces, patios and cladding.
Having shaped the landscape and lifestyle of Western Canada for centuries, Western red cedar is particularly appreciated by many First Nations communities, who recognize and value its durability and versatility when it comes to building homes and canoes or carving totem poles.
The red cedar is therefore the obvious choice for many, owing to its appearance, high resistance, consistency, reliability and its capacity to naturally self-produce protective oils.
It is thus entirely logical that red cedar be one of the preferred wood species of Patio de ville’s clientele. The company guides homeowners through the process of selecting the best options according to their needs, budget and the experience they wish to create in terms of outdoor terrace or patio amenities for their home, condo or chalet.
