For hundreds of years, cedar has been used for chests and in closets because of its natural qualities to repel moths and other insects.

Today, cedar’s universal appeal makes for gorgeous decks and other outdoor living spaces as well:

  • People are comfortable with cedar  because it’s so well-known; the wood has qualities that naturally protect it from the elements and insects.  It looks awesome and has staying power.
  • Cedar is a lightweight, but sturdy wood;  it is easy to work with and a favorite choice among skilled carpenters.
  • Cedar is rich in color and fragrance and when treated with quality stain, the rich reddish hue of cedar can be beautifully preserved with annual maintenance.
  • Or, if left to weather, cedar naturally fades to a lovely soft, subtle gray tone.
  • Cedar has aesthetic appeal with very distinct and varying grain patterns.
  • And best of all, cedar is not only attractive, but cost-effective
