What is Alaska Yellow Cedar?

Alaska Yellow Cedar is a wonderful species! Produced in much smaller quantities than Red and White Cedars, this wood has unique properties that allow it to perform extremely well against the elements – arguably much better than its cousins. Yellow Cedar is from the cypress family,  rather than a cedar, (thuja).

  • Alaska Yellow Cedar (AYC) – (chaemacyprus nootkatensis)
  • Western Red Cedar (WRC) – (thuja plicata)
  • Eastern White Cedar (EWC) – (thuja occidentalis)

Yellow Cedar grows only in the coastal mountains of Washington, British Columbia and Alaska. These higher elevations and northern latitudes have short growing seasons, resulting in very tight annual growth rings. This makes for a strong, dense wood, 1/3rd heavier than WRC and EWC and similar to Douglas Fir in structural strength. Yellow Cedar also has a high content of natural oils that effectively inhibit the agents of decay.

Yellow Cedar shingles are best when left to weather naturally to beautiful silver gray! Historically, this wood has also been used extensively for boat building, water reservoirs, gutters, beams and bridge stringers. It has many characteristics that make it a valuable species worldwide for lumber products where strength and natural resistance to decay are desired.

Uses

The Western Red Cedar No.1 Blue Label 18" Perfection is the most common "cedar shingle" used for roofing worldwide. It has been used throughout the USA Northeast for decades. An easy product to install with great aesthetic value for many roof designs, it is also well known in most off-shore markets.

Traditionally applied at 5-1/2" (14cm) exposure, the Perfection shingle roof offers a clean, smooth, uniform visual. We always recommend using a No.1 Grade Blue Label shingle for roofs and walls to ensure the best performance and appearance for primary buildings.

This 18" Perfection shingle is also used to produce the No.1 18" Re-Butted & Re-Jointed sidewall shingle - the most common siding shingle. The R&R shingle is manicured to speed application and give straight and parallel lines. The raw Perfection shingle can also be used on walls very effectively, albeit with a slightly less tailored end result.
