Cedar decks are one of the most popular deck material choices across Michigan. Cedar decks give you that natural beautiful wood look, that many other materials just can’t compare to. Cedar does not absorb moisture as fast as other woods, which helps to prevent future damage such as twisting and splitting. A life span of a cedar deck is usually around 15 to 20 years if treated properly.
Because cedar is durable and reliable material it’s used in other exterior products as well, such as siding, fencing, shingles, gazebos, sheds, out side windows and doors. The only downside to cedar, is it should be stained and treated at least once every couple of years. The four best grades of cedar are architect clear, custom clear, architect knotty and custom knotty.
Benefit of a Cedar Pavilion or Pergola
Having a cedar pergola or pavilion installed in your yard, adds certain benefits for the home owner. One of the first features a pergola or a pavilion adds to your yard is privacy.
