Redwood decks are as beautiful as they are dependable. Redwood stays straight and holds finishes longer than most woods. It is also naturally resistant to insects and decay. Redwood decks weather beautifully and will provide lasting enjoyment year after year. This softwood fades to a light grey if left untreated. As with all softwoods regular sanding and staining is necessary for comfortable living on your deck.
Redwood has a long, straight grain that appeals to lots of aesthetically-minded homeowners. In addition, its vibrant red color stands out in any yard or space. To some, it’s primarily the look of redwood that makes it such a desired type of material for a deck or other project.
Many carpenters report that redwood is a relatively easy wood to make into decking. As a softer wood, redwood can be less likely to buck a saw, or stop power tools with hard knots. Overall, this wood is a winner when it comes to creating quality decks or outdoor spaces that will improve the value of a home or property.
