INTRODUCING :: VERTICAL GRAIN WESTERN HEMLOCK

for modern interior wall and ceiling cladding

reSAWN TIMBER co. is pleased to announce our newest offering – WESTERN HEMLOCK  clear vertical grain: a well designed, economical option for modern interior wall and ceiling cladding.

We chose Western Hemlock for interior applications due to its impeccably straight uniform grain structure, fine texture, and its creamy white to light gold color, which lends itself to a modern clean aesthetic. Plus, it’s a stunning option for an affordable, aesthetically pleasing, high grade, vertical grain material.

Many of our interior Western Hemlock clear vertical grain (CVG) designs are finished in beautiful grey tones. The palette authentically aligns with the look of exterior wood cladding that has weathered to a silver-grey naturally over time, such as reSAWN’s pre-weathered clear vertical grain Western Red Cedar and Alaskan Yellow Cedar designs.

Western Hemlock is typically found on the Pacific North West coast of North America and is one of the most valuable sources of lumber in the northern hemisphere and is the largest of the hemlock species. Specimens range from 90 to 150 feet tall and 3 to 4.5 feet wide, though some specimens have been known to grow to heights of 250 feet and diameters approaching 9 feet. The wood is usually odorless when dry and free of resin.

reSAWN’s Western Hemlock products include three CHARRED shou sugi ban designs:

And six designs that are non-CHARRED:

All nine products are available for sampling and specification.

ADDITIONAL BENEFITS OF WESTERN HEMLOCK

      • From a design perspective it accepts finishes and shou sugi ban charring with excellent results, allowing for modern design aesthetics to be achieved.
      • Achieve a seamless interior/exterior aesthetic without having to use exterior grade material on an interior application, which typically comes at a higher cost. As an example, combine our WILLIWAW Alaskan Yellow Cedar CVG for exterior with OKANOGAN (shown in rendering above) Western Hemlock CVG for the interior. Or combine our PACKARD 2.0 charred Western Red Cedar CVG for exterior, with YAKIMA Western Hemlock CVG for the interior.
      • Strong, stable, straight-grained timber that is available in long lengths.
      • Its wide and prolific availability and its ability to quickly rejuvenate makes this species very sustainable.
      • Available as FSC-certified.
      • Most designs can be fire treated to Class A for interior projects.
      • There is typically little color variation between the heartwood and sapwood. They are often indistinguishable from one another.
