Western Red Cedar is naturally resistant to decay and rot. It is lightweight, strong and doesn't require any special tools to install. We offer high quality Western Red Cedar decking, read more about why you want Western Red Cedar over other cedar options. Not all Cedar is the same.
Old Growth Western Red Cedar is naturally resistant to rot and decay because of natural tannins within the cell structure. It grows in the Pacific Northwest, known for a wet climate, and thrives with or without stain or protectant. You can let it weather naturally, or keep the beautiful rich and warm colors through many options of stain.
Like all woods, Western Red Cedar is hygroscopic, which means it will absorb or discharge water to match it's environment. It excels though in that it has a low shrinkage factor compared to other soft woods. The low shrinkage factor means decking seams stay tighter, and resistance to twisting and checking.
Choose Western Red Cedar for your decking if you want an easy installation decking with an affordable purchase price.
Western Red Cedar VS other Cedars
Western Red Cedar grows naturally in abundance in the Pacific Northwest USA and Western Canada. It thrives in wet environments and grows with a tight grain that helps prevent twisting, splitting and cracking. Other Cedars, like Eastern Cedar do not have these qualities or durability.
