Although soffits are a significant design feature of your home and should complement the surrounding materials and the style of the structure, they are also integral to the span beneath the rafter tails of your roof and help protect the exterior of your house by keeping out pests. In addition to creating visual interest, soffits also provide the needed ventilation in and out of your attic and to the area beneath the roof deck. Proper ventilation to your attic is one of the key factors in keeping your utility bills under control in hot weather, and to avoid issues such as mold growth and ice formation in the winter.

Western Red Cedar is prized as an appearance product and possesses a show-stopping beauty. The species grows in a spectrum of hues that range from a light honey yellow to a deep sienna red, and the wood is highly sought after for it’s warm, rich look, and deep, natural luster. The combination of WRC’s grain, texture and colours create a naturally luxurious and prestigious product that no man-made material can replicate.
Western Red Cedar is an excellent choice for exterior applications such as soffits. The species’ fibers are rich in natural compounds that act as preservatives, providing the wood with a high resistance to moisture, decay, and insects, and making it extremely long-lasting. It is worth noting that First Nations have used Western Red Cedar for centuries for structures and totem poles, some of which are still standing after hundreds of years.
Western Red Cedar is also pitch and resin-free, meaning it readily accepts a wide range of finishes and stains. If preferred, Western Red Cedar can also be left unfinished and will gradually develop a beautiful, rustic silvery-gray patina over time.
Finishing and maintenance are recommendations provided by the Western Red Cedar Lumber Association (WRLCA). For more information on finishing and maintenance, please visit realcedar.com/outdoor/care-maintenance
