Cedar Wood Decks | Design And Installation
Cedar is an excellent choice for decks because it has many natural properties that make it a great addition to any home. Cedar is a natural dryer wood, which means it does not have to be treated with water. This makes the wood more naturally resistant to decay, rot, and insect damage, on top of the fact that it does not grow or shrink over time like other wood materials. However, depending on the amount of sunlight hitting the deck, it could still eventually fade.
Cedarwood possesses superior insulation qualities to help regulate temperatures on hot summer days and cold winter nights. Additionally, cedar’s unique aroma helps deter bugs, making it ideal if you’re looking for a low-maintenance deck. With its natural beauty and warm tones, cedar can also be easily customized with stains or paints to match your existing decor. All of these factors combine to make cedar the perfect option for building a durable and attractive outdoor living space that will last for years. Whether you choose traditional wood grain patterns or something more modern, cedar provides a beautiful and unique look that will add charm and value to any outdoor space. Investing in cedar for your deck is a decision you’ll be sure to enjoy for years to come.

Benefits of Cedar Decks
Cedar is an ideal material for building decks because it is a strong, lightweight wood that resists many common outdoor elements such as insect infestations and moisture. Cedar also has a natural beauty that makes it one of the most popular materials used for outdoor construction.
Cedar’s ability to resist decay and damage from insects makes it an ideal choice for decks, which often take a beating from the elements. Its natural oils give cedar excellent resistance to rot and naturally repel pests like termites without the need for chemical treatments or sprays. Cedar is easy to work with because it is lightweight and easy to shape. This makes it a popular choice for intricate or custom deck designs that require curved shapes or detailed railings. It is also easier to cut than many other wood varieties, making installation faster and simpler.
Cedar decks are often finished with a sealant or stain to help protect the wood from fading and weather damage, but because of its natural oils, cedar doesn’t need as much maintenance as some other woods. A simple cleaning every few months can keep your cedar deck looking beautiful for years.
Staining Your Cedar Deck
Staining a cedar deck is an important step in protecting it from the elements. The natural oils found in cedar wood are not enough to protect the wood from sun, rain, and snow damage without additional protection. Staining a cedar deck will help to seal out moisture, keep the colour of the wood vibrant and prevent warping or cracking. Additionally, staining a cedar deck will help to keep its natural beauty intact while also making it easier to clean and maintain.
By taking proper care of your cedar deck by staining it regularly, you can ensure that it remains beautiful for years to come. Action Home Services can stain any of your cedar decks with the colour and texture of your choosing. We believe in doing everything to keep your new, beautiful, custom deck looking amazing for years to come.

Cedar vs Pressure Treated Decks
Cedar decks are popular because of their beautiful natural look, but they can be more expensive than pressure-treated decks. In terms of durability and maintenance, cedar is much less resistant to rot than pressure-treated lumber, so it will require regular cleaning and sealing or staining in order to keep it looking its best. Pressure-treated decks tend to be cheaper upfront, but they may require more frequent maintenance due to the chemical treatments used on the wood. Both types of decking need to be regularly cleaned and stained/sealed in order to protect them from weather damage and wear and tear.
When it comes to installation costs, cedar tends to cost more as well since there are additional labour costs associated with cutting the boards into shape and fastening them down but this is due to its strength. In terms of environmental impact, cedar is a more ecologically friendly choice since it is naturally sourced and biodegradable. Pressure-treated lumber, on the other hand, is often chemically treated that cannot be disposed of quite as easily and need to be broken down to separate the lumber from the chemical treatment.
Cedar vs PVC or Composite Decks
In terms of longevity, both cedar and PVC or composite decks are highly durable and will last for many years with proper maintenance. However, if you live in a climate with extreme weather conditions, like high heat or heavy rainfall, composite is likely the better choice because it’s more resistant to weathering and won’t warp over time like cedar can.
When choosing between a cedar deck and a PVC or composite deck, there are several factors to consider including budget, aesthetics, durability, and maintenance requirements. Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference – both materials offer beautiful outdoor living spaces that are sure to enhance your home’s value!
