Western Red Cedar

Western Red Cedar shares many characteristics with redwood.  It is also a very stable and rot resistant wood.  The main difference between the two is appearance.  Where redwood is very uniform in color, cedar will have wide color variations throughout the wood, ranging from a light tan to a dark brown along with some reds.  This color variation will remain visible through a good translucent stain, and is one reason many people choose cedar.

It is not necessary to stain cedar or redwood for them to withstand the elements, but a stain is the only way to prevent any wood from fading to a silvery gray.   If you do plan to allow the wood to weather naturally, it is advised to use a water sealer to protect the wood from developing small splits, or surface checks.  In cedar we stock both 5/4×6 and 2×6 deck boards.

We now have both 2×8 and 4×4 in stock in S4S!!!  See below.
