Cedar Decks

Let's face it – the heart and soul of almost every outdoor sanctuary is a truly dynamic deck. You can be right on trend with a lush living wall, a sleek designer fire pit, a string of vintage lights and all the super chic seating solutions you like. But, without a classically beautiful deck to set the tone of your garden retreat, there’s nothing really tying all those stylish furnishings together.

That's where Real Cedar comes in.

It's one of the most inspiring deck-building materials to work with. Here's why:

Basis for Beauty

If you've got a bunch of totally amazing (yet somewhat disconnected), décor ideas floating around in your head, let our wood’s natural beauty and endless versatility be your guiding force. Trust us on this one – start with a stunning Real Cedar deck, and suddenly your designer daydreams and Pinterest wish lists start manifesting into one cohesive reality. Just think of Real Cedar decking as your blueprint to backyard bliss.

Real Team Player

Whether you're a contractor working to a tight deadline or a DIY renovator with no set completion date, you don't want to be messing around with materials that make your decking project harder. That's why so many professionals like working with Western Red Cedar lumber.

It lies flat and straight, so it's super easy to fit in place. Plus, this sturdy and structurally solid wood is surprisingly light, so it's easy to lug around your site – and less strenuous lifting means more time to enjoy the creative process. After all, building decks shouldn't be a pain in the neck (and we mean that both literally and figuratively).

Guilt-Free Gratification

Designing your dream deck should be a positive and creatively fulfilling experience. So the last thing you want is environmental concerns stemming the flow of your ideas. With Real Cedar, you needn't worry. In terms of sustainability, it beats composite decking on every level.

In fact, Real Cedar actually boasts a net carbon sink, meaning our wood removes greenhouse gases from the atmosphere – whereas other building materials emit greenhouse gases. So dream big. As long as you're working with Real Cedar, there's no need in letting eco-guilt hold you back.

Timeless and Tough

While garden trends come and go, Real Cedar decking never goes out of style. So if the home décor magazines are urging you to switch out your wicker furniture for a wrought iron bistro set, let em.' Your timeless Real Cedar deck is going to look, smell and feel beautiful no matter how you furnish it.

You can also take comfort in knowing that Real Cedar decking isn't just a pretty face. It out performs all of those synthetic building materials on the market right now. That's because Western Red Cedar is naturally resistant to rot, decay and insect attacks... Also, did we mention it's beautiful?

Pressure Treated Decks

Pressure-treated wood has been around for nearly 70 years, yet most of us still know very little about this popular outdoor building material. To start, pressure-treated wood is softwood lumber, typically southern yellow pine, that's been chemically treated to resist rot, decay and termites. The boards are rolled into giant pressurized tanks where chemical preservatives are forced deep into the wood's fibers. The result is an exterior-grade wood that's ideal for building decks, fences, sheds, picnic tables, swing sets, and other outdoor projects.
The Popular Choice for Decks

There are reported to be some 30,000,000 wood decks in the United States, and the number increases with every new subdivision. Despite the ongoing use of some naturally durable species of wood and the emergence of several types of artificial wood, the overwhelmingly chosen material for decks is pressure-treated wood.

Pressure Treated Decking

Treated wood, sold in nearly every lumber outlet in North America, is favored for a variety of reasons: it has a natural appearance, its resistance to termites and rot is well established, wood is a plentiful and renewable resource, and treated wood is usually the most economical choice.

Longevity - Preserved wood resists damage from termites and fungal decay for decades; some producers offer warranties that extend for the life of the purchaser.

More than 80% of all U.S. decks are built entirely or partially with preserved wood, according to national surveys. Even when redwood or composite decking is used for the deck platform, preserved wood is usually used for posts, beams, and joists because of its structural strength and ability to withstand deterioration in ground contact.

Pressure Treated Decking

Appearance - Treated wood can be found in a variety of lumber grades -- from knot-free, close-grained grades to grades with more knots, splits, and wane (missing corners where bark once existed). Other than imparting a greenish or brownish hue, pressure-treatment has little effect on the appearance of wood; the treating process makes wood last longer regardless of its appearance.

The grades of lumber are determined by certified graders at sawmills, prior to treatment, and are stamped on each piece of wood. For those parts of a deck where the wood is conspicuous and you want top appearance, such as the platform and railing, select a better grade of lumber, such as Premium or No. 1. Where the wood will be unseen (e.g., a deck joist) or where you might like a rustic look (retaining wall), you can buy a more economical grade, Standard or No. 2.

Preservative treatments - In the past, almost all deck lumber was impregnated with CCA (chromated copper arsenate) preservative. Now, however, residential lumber is protected by newer preservatives, such as copper azole and alkaline copper quaternary. Wood treated with these preservatives is available from lumber dealers under various brand names; most widely known are Wolmanized® Residential Outdoor® Wood and Thompsonized® Wood.

Pressure Treated Decking

Protection - Wood that has contact with the ground is more susceptible to termite and rot damage than wood which remains above ground. Wood immersed in seawater has even greater vulnerability.

The wood preservation industry has established standard levels of protection that are adequate for the different hazard conditions. The standards refer to the amount of chemical retained in wood after treatment, or retention, and is measured in pounds of preservative per cubic foot (pcf) of wood. Higher retention levels enable wood to withstand more demanding conditions. Look for the intended use (e.g., Above Ground, Ground Contact) on the wood.

Built-in water repellent - While the preservative treatment protects wood against termites and rot, it does not prevent moisture damage which can cause warping, cracking, and deterioration of appearance. Some treated wood is produced with built-in water repellent which keeps the wood looking good longer. The water repellent feature will be marked on the wood and noted on store signs.

Pressure Treated Decking

Re-dried material - Some dealers offer treated wood that has been re-dried, usually marked KDAT for Kiln Dried After Treatment. This step provides a lighter weight product that is less prone to warp and can be painted without a waiting period.

Sizes - You can find preserved wood products in a full range of sizes from 1" x 4" boards to 6" x 6" timbers, in a variety of lengths, plus plywood. For decking, a popular thickness is 5/4", which has rounded edges for a distinctive look. Many stores also carry treated wood specialty products -- such as spindles, handrails, ball tops, step stringers, and lattice -- which can make construction easier and embellish your project.

Maintenance - Every decking material requires some maintenance, for cleaning if nothing else. Pressure-treatment provides long-term protection against termites and rot, but even treated wood is subject to moisture damage. To protect wood against weather and premature aging, coat the wood with an effective brand of water repellent as soon as possible and then reapply a coating every year or so.

Environmental benefits - You can feel good about using preserved wood, an environmentally responsible choice. Treated lumber comes from our only major renewable building material -- wood. The trees used are plentiful and fast-growing, and they are grown on managed timberlands. Treated wood requires less energy to produce than alternative building products. The preservatives are manufactured, in large part, from recycled materials.

Most important for homeowners and the environment, the treatment extends the life of wood. This enables a deck to last longer, and it reduces demands on forests and other resources.
