A Durable and Long-Lasting Wood

Wood must always be protected against decay and insect attack. Western Red Cedar is a special wood in that it produces its own preservative oils with minimal pitch and resin. For decking, Cedar is an especially good choice due to its strength and ability to stay flat, straight and resist checking. Although Western Red Cedar is durable and strong, it is also relatively light weight, which makes it easy to work with when building decks and fences. It is ideal for almost all types of finishes.
