The management and staff at Weatherwise Cedar Products are ready to help you choose the best cedar for your home improvement and building projects, and care for it down the road.

Plan your perfect cedar project

Fencing, decking and siding experts in Parksville Qualicum will help you find the best solution

You made the decision to go with cedar for your fence project all those years ago. Now that fence is starting to look a little timeworn.

So where do you go to find replacement panels or boards, and good information about the best product for your specific application? In the Parksville and Qualicum Beach area, you want to find someone who knows how the coastal weather affects outdoor elements of your property.

At Weatherwise Cedar Products, manager Greg Matheson has seen a resurgence in the number of homeowners coming to them for advice and new fencing materials. Many of those people are repeat customers, he notes.

“We made the first generation of our panels 20 years ago and many of them are at the end of their life now,” he says. “We’re hearing from many people who are replacing fencing that we provided back then. Everybody wants a little bit of privacy and fencing is a way of creating an attractive separation from your neighbours.”

You’ll find knowledge and experience here

Having joined the team in 2011, Greg has seen quality customer service and a broad product line help keep you coming back for your cedar and related needs. “You can go anywhere to buy a product, and anybody can have the same price, but it’s the service you get that’s going to make the difference,” he says.

With an experienced team of professionals on hand at this award-winning business – they won the Building Supply Industry Association of B.C.’s Best Finishing and Specialty Products award from 2015-17 – you’ll be sure to find the right product at the right price. Ask them about delivery options!

Helping you take care of your investment

By taking proper care of the cedar on or around your home, it can add a minimum of seven to 10 years to its lifespan, Greg says. With a number of products on the market, the staff at Weatherwise are happy to help educate you on the benefits of doing regular maintenance. “We give you all the information we can to help you get the most out of your cedar product,” he adds.

Getting the most out of the wood

As a remanufacturer of western red cedar sourced from Western Forest Products, Island Timberlands and others, Weatherwise and its parent Aquila Cedar Products create lumber and value-added products from wood harvested on Vancouver Island. Byproducts and waste from that process are also used, including shavings sent to local farms for livestock beds.


Whether you’re looking to enhance your home or build a custom home, you’re invited to drop by the store on Alberni Highway, check out what’s new and meet the staff. They’ll be happy to help you find the solution for your building project. You can also follow Weatherwise on Facebook.
