Is that real cedar or a different siding?

    That is Cambia. It is a torrified North American poplar. The wood has been kiln dried at an extremely high temperature but in an oxygen-free environment so the wood will not ignite. The gasses released from the wood are then fed back into the kiln and reignited so the the process basically fuels itself once started. the result is a beautiful clear wood that has been robbed of all of its potential energy so that it becomes resistant to rot and decay. -Chris

    I see that you have chosen Cambia for several projects. Why choose Cambia over cedar which is naturally resistant to rot and decay?

    Sorry for the late response Lori. Are you referring to white cedar or red? We have used both, however we have been drawn to Cambia for it's color and for it's rot resistant and decay resistant characteristics. We generally do not treat cambia when installed, instead we allow it to age naturally and over time it will grey. We do also like the white cedar since it is locally harvested and readily available.
