There is nothing like the richness and colour of timber. Nuview supplies western read cedar windows and doors, customized designed to suit your individual style and taste.

Western red cedar is an evergreen coniferous tree of genus cedrus with a fragrant durable wood and is one of the world finest timbers.

Western red cedar is very durable but is a soft timber commonly used for weatherboards, fascias, windows, doors and joinery. It is easy to work with and takes stains and coatings readily. Nuview supplies western red cedar windows and doors with a coat of clear wood preservative. This treatment provides temporary protection for a period of 4 to 6 weeks.

Western red cedar timber doors and windows with their natural warm colours and tones create a unique ambience like no other product and the timber does not warp or crack. Shrinkages and timber distortions are minimum.

Western red cedar is a most popular choice when considering home extensions and or home renovations.

Because western red cedar is fine and stable with a strong grain structure, years of use can be maintained from the outside elements. Colour ranges can vary from honey/beige to deep reds and browns; it is the mix of colours within a single piece of cedar that makes it unique.

Standard finish
Nuview cedar windows and doors are manufactured and installed with a clear water repellent treatment which is designed to prevent ingress of water into the surface of the cedar and in particular the end-grain of the cedar in the period between manufacture and when the windows and doors are finally painted or stained after installation in the building. This product is designed to accept all types of surface finishes. It does require scuffing, when a penetrating stain is applied within seven days of the application of the water repellent treatment.

Optional Finish
Nuviewcedar windows and doors can also be supplied primed with a water based opaque acrylic primer which is a preferred primer and highly recommended. This application is designed as a protective cover before painting and as a prime coat for water or oil based undercoats. Surfaces which have been dressed back to bare timber must be re-primed with an acrylic primer.

Nuview Window and Door Installation can offer federation, traditional or contemporary styles in western red cedar.
