Also known as Western Red Cedar, it has been used for indoor and outdoor installations for centuries. Cedar is naturally resistant to moisture, insects, rot and decay. Ideal for decking because it brings warmth, character with its wonderful knots and structure and is much softer on your feet than the hardwoods.
Rich, natural beauty. Cedar has a richly textured grain with colors ranging from ambers to sienna browns. Left alone to silver with age or coated with an oil or stain to keep its colour longer, cedar is a beautiful wood for any deck. Easy Finishing – Because cedar is virtually pitch and resin free, the wood easily accepts a range of finishes, from fine oils and stains, to solid coatings and paint.
Durable and aromatic. Cedar’s unique aroma comes from naturally occurring thujaplicins in its heartwood. These compounds resist moisture and are toxic to decay-causing fungi and insects and preserve the wood to ensure your deck lasts a long, long, time.
Sustainable and Bio-Degradable. Real Cedar is renewable and completely biodegradable. Unlike synthetic materials, brick or cement, cedar forests remove greenhouse gases from the atmostphere. Plus, all our cedar is sourced from the most sustainably managed forests here in Canada.
