Western red cedar decking never goes out of style. There isn’t a better material on the planet to work with than red cedar. Just think of cedar decking as your blueprint to backyard bliss.
Cedar is a highly revered, durable wood. It is naturally resistant to rot, decay and insect attacks. Properly finished and maintained, cedar will deliver decades of trouble-free service. This means anything you build with red cedar will last longer and requires less maintenance.
Our cedar boards feature kerf cuts on the back side to reduce cupping and can reduce splintering, resulting in cleaner cuts. Our cedar decking boards also feature radius edges, which are finished off rounded edges. Radius edges reduce splinters and improve the appearance of the decking boards.
Cedar Decking Highlights
- Real Wood Beauty
Aesthetically, there really is no substitute for the natural beauty of cedar. Imbued with decidedly crisp, yet superbly rich, tonal properties, cedar can create sublime outdoor sanctuaries, embolden traditional home decor, provoke cutting-edge architecture and inspire innovative interiors.
Western red cedar is pitch and resin-free. This means it’s ideal for accepting and holding a wide range of beautiful finishes including elegant dark stains, shabby chic bleaches, traditional solid colours and naturally beautiful semi-transparents. Cedar also offers a wide range of lumber dimensions, surface textures and grades.
Independent studies prove that when it comes to environmental performance, natural wood is superior to synthetic products in every way. While other building materials generate greenhouse gasses, western red cedar actually removes greenhouse gasses from the atmosphere. And unlike brick, cement and composites, cedar is renewable and biodegradable. In addition, cedar is sourced from the most sustainably managed forests in the world.
