Western red cedar decking can help you create a gorgeous, functional outdoor living space. This sturdy wood offers a distinctive look and low-maintenance performance for years to come, whether you’re creating a new deck addition on your home or adding built-in benches to your existing deck. The versatility and natural durability of cedar make it a popular wood for backyard use. Middletown Lumber stocks a wide range of cedar lumber options in an assortment of sizes, so you can find just the right wood for your particular project.

Benefits Of Western Red Cedar Decking

When you’re searching for decking material, durability and strength are major concerns. Cedar is a long-lasting wood that doesn’t absorb water easily, so it maintains its structure over time without warping or cracking. This stability lets the wood withstand extreme changes in temperature, so your deck can handle everything from hot summer sun to snowy winter weather. Western red cedar decking is also naturally resistant to rotting and insect damage, making it ideal for exposed surfaces.

The natural red and brown tones with visible wood grain provide an attractive look on your deck. Because it is a resin-free, pitch-free wood, you can easily stain, paint, or finish the wood to get exactly the look you want.

Red Cedar Sourcing

Middletown Lumber sources western red cedar from Terminal Forest Products in Vancouver, British Columbia. Because this wood is cut from old-growth forests, the grain is finer than younger cedar typically grown in the US. Western red cedar has been harvested for centuries and is valued for its beauty, functionality, versatility, and strength.

As part of the Sustained Forest Initiative, Terminal Forest Projects actively manages the forests it logs, ensuring good stewardship of the land and the maintenance of a healthy ecosystem. The company partners with local First Nations groups to responsibly harvest timber in Pacific Northwest forests. Western red cedar forests help improve air quality and contribute to ecological health, and sustainable management ensures that new trees continue to grow in the forests to replace those harvested for lumber.
