Cedar is easy to work with, has a nice, straight grain, and is naturally resistant to insect damage, rot, decay moisture, and mold because of the natural compounds it contains. Cedar decks also, hold solid or transparent stains, varnishes, and oil finishes well, are richly aromatic, and have a natural, warm look and feel that will add beauty to your home. Cedar is well known for its lasting durability, and it is exceptionally well suited to fences and decks. It is also ideal for pergolas, benches, fences, gazebos, and more. A well constructed cedar deck from Karpentor Decks will leave your home looking beautiful for many years to come.
If not properly sealed and protected, Cedar decks will weather to a grey colour over time, so they require sealing or staining every 1-2 years. With proper maintenance, your cedar decks should last for 15-20 years.
