Cypress is one of the best building materials for exterior uses.

What did Noah’s Ark and the first doors of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome have in common? Legend has it that both were made of the durable wood we know as cypress.

When it comes to recommending a product based on its strength and good looks, cypress is hard to beat. Cypress is a superior product to cedar because of the natural oil known as cypressine which allows cypress to be extremely resilient to both moisture and the occasional curious insect.

Cypress v-joint is a favorite for applying to ceilings inside and out. We have found that staining this product is the best choice to darken the color and enhance the grain which is so beautiful in cypress.
