Redwood & Cedar Decks

Redwood and cedar are western softwood species that are treasured for their rich colors and natural beauty. The natural tannins and oils found in redwood and cedar make these woods resistant to rot, decay and various types of insects. The high-grade redwood and cedar that Karpentor uses for deck building are lightweight, stable, and resistant to warping and splinting.

Typically redwood is slightly more costly than cedar, but both are naturally resistant to damaging effects of weather. Both redwood and cedar look and smell great, and they’re popular deck building materials for a few reasons:

  • Won’t warp when exposed to moisture
  • No need for dangerous, corrosive chemicals in production (due to their natural rot and pest resistance)
  • Requires less maintenance than other types of wood
  • Does not require treatment with preservatives
  • Resistant to temperature-related stresses

The primary difference between redwood and cedar decks are their colour; redwood is a vibrant crimson, whereas cedar is golden-brown. The expert deck contractors at Karpentor ensure that the redwood and cedar decks we construct lie flat and straight (due to our materials quality), providing your home with a deck that is structurally solid and long-lasting.
