WHISTLER by reSAWN TIMBER co. features western red cedar that is sustainably harvested in the pacific northwest and intended to provide a high performing, natural material. WHISTLER can be used for interior or exterior wall cladding and is available in either select tight knot (STK) grade or C&Better Mixed Grain (clear grade).

WHISTLER is durable, dimensionally stable and resistant to rot and insects.  WHISTLER can be treated to Class A Fire Rating for Interior Applications – please call to inquire.

Our sealing process makes for beautifully designed exterior wood siding.  Like any exterior wood siding prefinished or finished in place, these materials will weather naturally over time and will require normal cleaning and maintenance.  For interior applications, expect little to no change.  

reSAWN offers a multitude of high-performing exterior species that include western red cedar, atlantic white cedar, Accoya wood, and Kebony.  In addition to weathered finishes and unfinished wood species, reSAWN’s exterior offering includes their award-winning CHARRED designs, which are inspired by the Japanese tradition “shou sugi ban.”

reSAWN is dedicated to providing high-performance, long-lasting cladding material, and has developed its product line based on observations of experienced industry leaders and a first-hand understanding of customer needs.
