Western Red Cedar
Cedar is a fantastic choice for a deck building material because of its combination of unique properties it is naturally resistant to rot and decay. It is dimensionally stable, meaning that it lays flat and stays straight. Even grain and consistent density make it less likely to warp, cup or twist. Fresh cut cedar will come in a wide range of honey/peach shades of light brown. When exposed to weather, it will change in color to silver gray. Cedar’s softness makes it easy to work with and readily accepts protective stains. Its thermal properties allow it to stay cool to the touch in summer heat. We recommend protecting cedar decking by staining with Penofin or Woodsman exterior stain. A cedar deck can last for 15-20 years or more, depending on maintenance and environment. Cedar decking is stocked at Lloyd Lumber in 5/4X6 – 8’,10’,12’,14’,16’.

Due to the wood’s fine texture and interlocking grain, Ipe offers superior slip resistance. Ipe is not stocked item but can be special ordered.
