Western Cedar Decking Material
Western Cedar has become increasingly popular for St. Louis homeowners who are impressed not only by the way it looks but for its strength and durability. Western Cedar is a natural wood product. Its makeup makes it resistant to wood burrowing bugs and decay. The unique combination of oils within the wood provides protection that penetrates deep to the core. These give the wood strength and flexibility that makes it ideal for outside structures.
All you need with Western Cedar decking is a protective coating to repel water. This varnish will increase its natural resilience to the elements plus add a shiny glow to your deck. Your outside space will be enhanced by the natural red beauty that only cedar can provide.
Other Benefits of Western Cedar
A growing concern with St. Louis residents is the environmental friendliness of the products that they use. There is no need to worry about the environmentally damaging effects of cedar decking products. Being a natural product, Western Cedar beats composite decking products in sustainably hand over fist. It even works at reducing those greenhouse gases from our breathing air. Plus with replanting systems in place, there is no reason to concern about your deck depleting forests.
Western cedar is also ideal for other outside structures like fences, porches and even gazebos. It always lies flat and straight when putting in place, allowing your Artistic Decks experts to create the clean lines you want in all of your outdoor relaxation spaces. With this type of ease in use, you can create unique designs for your project that may not be achievable with other deck materials.
