Grown only in the Pacific Northwest from Alaska south to Oregon, and west of the Coast Mountains, where cooler temperatures and abundant year-round precipitation is found, Alaska Yellow Cedar is a highly prized and sought-after building material choice. Yellow Cedar lumber can be difficult to find outside the growing region, as supply is limited.
Because we are located in the heart of cedar country, where both Alaska Yellow Cedar and Western Red Cedar are natively grown, we can source top-quality Cedar lumber for indoor and outdoor construction projects. If we don’t stock what you are looking for, chances are we have a relationship with a mill that can make it for you. With shipments of specialty building materials leaving our warehouse daily to all over the US, our customers value the quality of our products and honest business practices, combined with excellent customer service and superior product knowledge.
We recently shipped a custom milled package of surfaced, knotty Alaska Yellow Cedar lumber to New Jersey for this stunning deck and railing crafted by Paradise Knoll Builders of Oakland, NJ.
“Thanks for the awesome lumber you sent us Michele. The job turned out great. People love it.”
If you can dream it up, we can have it made! We specialize in working with customers with unique building materials needs all over the US.

We are currently working with a home builder in Half Moon Bay, CA, on an exquisite custom home and are getting ready to ship out this custom milled, clear vertical grain Western Red Cedar rail cap along with more clear cedar T&G cladding for the project.
Starting with the architect’s specs, we had a line drawing created with the customer’s exact measurements to review before starting production.
Once the clear, vertical grain Western Red Cedar rail cap was milled, a filler piece of wood was attached to the bottom to help protect the “legs” during pre-stain and shipment.
Next, the rail cap was pre-stained with Penofin Ultra Premium Red Label in “Cedar”. This will help protect the custom milled Cedar rail cap during shipment, on the job site, and during installation.
A second field coat is recommended before installation on all four sides.

We specialize in working with customers with unique needs all over the US! If you can design it, we can have it made! When a company that specializes in multi-family construction remodels contacted us to help him manufacture a cedar rail cap to an exact profile to match what was used on a property previously, we were able to have it made from this full, rough cut Western Red Cedar lumber.
Made from high-quality Select Tight Knot Western Red Cedar, this rail cap will be installed at a condominium complex in Idaho after we have it sent out for a factory pre-prime with oil-based primer, so that it is ready to install when it arrives on the job site. Our factory pre-stain process saves money and time on the job, helps to protect your material on the job site, as well as during installation.
With shipments of high-quality Western Red Cedar, Alaskan Yellow Cedar lumber, siding, shingles, shakes, timbers, (as well as other specialty building materials in various hard and softwoods), leaving our warehouse daily to all over the US, our customers value the quality of our products and our honest business practices, combined with excellent customer service and superior product knowledge.

Perfect for residential and commercial applications, Western ClearView powder-coated aluminum railings are built to withstand harsh environmental conditions and are designed for modern living at an affordable price. With dozens of combinations of glass, picket, and stainless steel cable in a variety of colors to choose from, the right look for your project is just a quote away.
To help ensure you have exactly all the components you need, at all the right lengths and angles, we will have a ClearView representative field measure your project before your railing is quoted for FREE (limited to the location of the project). All railing systems are available with either surface or fascia mount posts and installation hardware and are backed with a 10-year manufacturer’s limited warranty.
Each color is powder-coated onto the aluminum using an ionic bond process, making it much more durable and long-lasting than conventional painted rails. For the Powder Coat Warranty to remain intact, the railing system is to be washed and rinsed with fresh water at least two times per year.
Available in a wide variety of colors, our powder-coated railing systems will complement almost any architectural style or color
Picket Railing System
The most conventional railing, this system is sturdy and dependable with clean and elegant lines. Available with standard 1-5/8” Square Pickets, 1-1/2” Slat Pickets or Basket Pickets which contain a 2” bow in the middle of the picket.
Welded Picket Railing System
The easiest and quickest to install, the welded panels provide more strength than component pickets. It is also the most economic aluminum powder-coated rail system we offer. The welded picket panels can span up to 8 feet between posts (for a 36” tall system) saving even more time and money by not having to buy or install as many posts.
Glass Railing System
The most popular railing, this system provides sturdy construction with a completely unobstructed view of your surroundings. The top and bottom channels can also accept pickets if a mix of the two styles is desired. The glass can be clear, tinted, or obscured and can be custom cut for stairs or other custom applications.
Self Cleaning Glass
We can provide a “Green” environmentally safe coating for any of these ClearView Railing products that VIRTUALLY ELIMINATES THE NEED FOR CLEANING! This revolutionary technology only requires Sunlight and Water (rain) to activate its process of destroying and washing away organic materials from the surface.
Glazing stays cleaner longer. For touchup cleaning use only vinegar and water.
TIO2 Nano-Technology accelerates the continuous photo-catalytic breakdown of any organic compounds.
The resulting Hydrophilic action causes water to sheet on the surface and rinse away the decomposed dirt from the surface more efficiently.
The glass surface dries more quickly with minimal spotting and streaking.
No unsightly tint or reflective surface.
Reduces dew formation and collection on the glass surface, as well as UV transmittance.
Factory-applied to new Western ClearView railing glass
FDA and EPA approved.
Safe for humans and pets.
Continues to work for 5-8 years.
