Why Choose Cedar?
If the natural look of wood is one of the top must haves of your list, use cedar. The deeper colored red part is rot resistant which is definitely a pro when choosing your deck material plus the color is gorgeous. Cedar doesn’t readily absorb moisture and, since moisture is what creates splitting and twisting of wood, cedar decking tends to lie flat and straight. Most say that a cedar deck and have a lifespan of 15 to 20 years and on up if they are taken care of well. If you are building a ground level deck or a deck that is always shaded then cedar may not be the best option for you as they can be slow to dry out.
One of the top reasons people choose cedar deck material vs. composite is the low cost up front in comparison to the composite decks. But the cedar deck material does take more time and maintenance over the years. To retain the cedar deck color you have to clean it and reseal it ever year or two, and event hen it can be a losing battle. Cedar is also soft; when used for stairs or for decks where furniture gets dragged around a lot, the edges in particular can get beat up over time. This can be something to think about if your deck will have lots of action. Overall when choosing your deck material, cedar does make for a beautiful deck that you can enjoy for many years!
