reSAWN offers weathered Atlantic White Cedar because of its propensity for resiliency, beauty, and versatility. Its lightweight, straight grain, ease of machining, ease of finishing, low shrinkage, and extreme resistance to decay make it a trusted and elegant option for both interior and exterior applications.

Our pre-weathered designs mimic the look of wood that has been exposed to years of exterior elements and left to weather with grace. This design solution solves for wood’s natural propensity to gray out by resembling a weathered look at the time of installation, with little aesthetic change as it ages in place. For interior applications, expect little to no change from the day of installation.


Grown along the Atlantic coast from Maine to Florida, atlantic white cedar is widely used as exterior siding material for its decay resistance and durability. We chose the domestic softwood for its ability to accept and hold finishes, which made it a perfect species for our weathered designs. The weathered designs provide an exterior material that will have minimal aesthetic variation throughout its lifecycle.

  • DURABILITY– Atlantic white cedar is a naturally durable softwood that creates extractives (Thujaplicans and Phenolics) that ward off decay caused by insects, water infiltration, and fungi. The extractives increase with age leading to a longer lasting product life cycle–especially in exterior applications.
  • DIMENSIONAL STABILITY– AWC has a very low shrinkage factor and is largely superior to all other coniferous softwoods in its resistance to warping, checking, and twisting.
  • THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY– AWC’s low densities gives it a high thermal insulating value because it contains a high proportion of cell cavities. In dry wood, these cavities are filled with air which is one of the best known thermal insulators. The R value is 1.35″ (34mm) of thickness.
  • FIRE RESISTANCE–reSAWN’s CHARRED and WEATHERED CEDAR have a Flame Spread Index of 40 and a Smoke Developed Index of 140 to give it a Class B Rating. They can be fire treated to Class A for interior projects.
