    All lumber is not equal. Rough cedar is one of the best woods to use whether you’re in the midst of a home improvement project or seeking the right lumber for commercial construction. While it does tend to cost a bit more compared to other woods, its unique advantages more than make up for the dent it’ll make on your wallet. Consider some of the following benefits of rough cedar lumber:

    • Natural insect repellent. Cedar lumber naturally repels insects, including termites. In fact, the resins of this wood are toxic to termites and other insects that try to consume it.
    • Beauty and rot resistance. Rough cedar lumber also naturally resists rot, making it a preferred choice for outdoor living spaces and siding. Plus, you don’t need to stain, varnish, or add any other type of chemical to waterproof it as it’ll age into its own unique and beautiful color while still remaining durable.
    • Aromatic. Cedar doesn’t need waterproofing as its oil causes water to bead up and drip off for a natural resistance. This same oil is also what gives cedar lumber its classic rich aroma.
    • Sustainability. When it comes to tracking environmental performance and green footprints, natural wood like cedar is superior to synthetic products in every measurable way. Whereas other building materials emit greenhouse gases, cedar removes those gases from the atmosphere. Plus, cedar and other natural woods are renewable, biodegradable, and the industry is appropriately monitored to ensure best practices.
