Unsorted Joinery (Premium Grade)
This is the best quality joinery timber, where the lower grades have been removed or sorted. Unsorted Joinery is mainly used where the visible finish is important, such as doors, windows or stairs. Unsorted is also used for skirtings, architraves and other internal mouldings where a high-quality finish is essential.
Unsorted Joinery has a low knot content, straight grain and a smooth finish.
5ths Grade (Standard Grade)
This is a more multi-purpose grade, which has a huge variety of uses. 5ths Grade is typically used for Cladding, Flooring, Skirting, Architraves, Dado Rail and many others.
5ths Grade Joinery still maintains the smooth finish of unsorted but has a slightly higher knot content.
Western Red Cedar
Western Red Cedar is a popular choice for Cladding, Shingles, Panels, Decking as well as many other uses. It is available in a wide range of patterns, widths and thicknesses offering further flexibility in design.
Properly finished and maintained, cedar will deliver decades of trouble free service.
For more than a century, cedar has been used around the world to enhance buildings with it's beautiful look and durable material.
Nature still knows best, despite all efforts at imitation, no man-made product can match the performance qualities of Western Red Cedar.

Planed Square Edge (PSE)
PSE, or Planed Square Edge timber is used in internal joinery applications where a precise finish is required. It is a kiln dried wood which guards against twisting and splitting. There are often 2 sets of profile measurements next to the title of a PSE product. The first is the original size of the timber, the second, the measure in brackets, is the planed finished size of the timber, i.e. the actual dimensions of the finished product you would receive. This is because PSE timber loses some of its width and height during the planing process.
Typically there are 3 grades of wood, unsorted being the highest grade, followed by sawfalling grade, which contains a mixture of the best and medium grades, and 4th grade or 5th grade, which are used where the appearance of the wood itself is less important.
