Homeowners love redwood, with good reason! Redwood decks and fences are naturally beautiful, but also durable. There is no substitute for the warmth and beauty of real redwood. No wonder artificial materials are typically available in a “redwood” color. Too bad they just aren’t the same as the real thing.

As a homeowner, you have a choice to do-it-yourself or to hire a contractor to build the project of your dreams. In either case, redwood is the perfect choice!

Redwood is extremely workable. Even novice homeowners can get started building with redwood using simple wood working tools. Redwood also accepts paints, stains, and sealants exceptionally well. When your project is done, you can easily protect it using the coating of your choice. Or, you can leave redwood to naturally weather to a soft gray color.

Contractors love redwood too because it is durable and strong, yet lightweight and easy to handle. Redwood lays down flat and stays straight. Redwood also displays less warping, cupping, and checking than other natural wood species. Contractors can depend on redwood to perform beautifully from construction through to finished project.

If you are unfamiliar with redwood as a beautiful, durable building material, we encourage you to find out more! There are many resources, right at your fingertips, to help you make the choice the use real redwood for your next outdoor living project.

The California Redwood Association (CRA) also has a lot of information about the beauty of redwood. Founded in 1916, the association’s primary mission is to promote redwood products.
