Q: What sizes of cedar lumber is available at Prairie Cedar?

A: We carry a full selection of cedar boards, dimensional lumber and timbers in various widths, lengths and even in different grades for different types of applications.  In addition, we carry solid wood tongue & groove boards, cedar sidings, shakes & shingles. For a full description of these items, please refer to the materials listing on the main page of this site.

Q: How do I know which grade of cedar I need?

A: That is a great question. Different applications have different solutions. For finishing materials, furniture or demanding applications, we often recommend using “clear” cedar. For a more rustic look and feel, use a knotty cedar. Many of the lumber sizes are also available in a patio clear grade which offers great structural properties and is well priced comparatively.
