It is a popular choice for outdoor projects such as siding, decking, roofing, trim, fencing, landscaping and more. It is stable, lightweight, easy to shape and takes nails and other fasteners without cracking or splitting. WRC contains natural tannins that act as a preservative making it resistant to moisture, decay and insect damage. There is minimal swelling and shrinkage with WRC compared to other soft woods. Furthermore, WRC has an exceptional ability to accept and retain finishes due to it's stability, texture and lack of resin.
