Redwood & Cedar Decks

The naturally occurring oils and tannins in redwood and cedar decks make them resistant to insects and decay. Redwood and cedar are both western species of softwood that are admired for their intense hues and natural beauty. The redwood and cedar that the deck builders at Karpentor use are high grade, stable, and resistant to splinting and warping. Redwood tends to be more expensive than cedar, but both woods are resistant to the damaging effects of harsh weather and extreme temperature fluctuations. Redwood and cedar both look and smell great, and they have become popular deck building materials in and around Hamilton, Ontario for a number of reasons:

  • Due to their natural rot and insect resistance, corrosive chemicals are not required in production
  • Easier to maintain than other types of wood
  • Resistant to harsh climates and temperatures
  • Moisture does not case warping
  • Treatment with preservatives not required

Redwood and cedar differ in colour; redwood is a rich crimson shade, and cedar tends to be golden-brown. Karpentors professional deck contractors love working with the high quality redwood and cedar we provide homeowners in Hamilton, Waterdown, Milton, Ancaster, Kitchener / Waterloo, Flamborough, Burlington, Oakville, St. Catharines, Dundas and Cambridge / Guelph.
