The versatility and workability of Mendocino redwood is legendary.
As a contractor, you need look no further than redwood to find the ideal building material for your customers and their special projects. Homeowners love the beauty, durability and superior environmental qualities of real redwood. Artificial materials just don’t have the same rich color and warmth that redwood possesses.
For contractors, there are a number of benefits to working with redwood.
Redwood is typically less expensive than some artificial materials such as composites and vinyl. This means the cost of materials for decks, fences, and other outdoor living projects is generally lower with redwood. Giving homeowners a less expensive, yet beautiful option like redwood is a win-win for everyone.
Durable and strong, redwood is also surprisingly lightweight. The weight properties of redwood make it easy to handle on the job site. No need to hire extra labor to help with bulky, flimsy materials. Redwood can be easily manipulated by one or two people using simple woodworking tools. And, the versatility of redwood means even the most elaborate designs can be completed on time and on budget.
Redwood lays down flat and stays straight. Redwood also displays less warping, cupping, and checking than other natural wood species. As a contractor, you can depend on redwood to perform beautifully from construction through to finished project.
The California Redwood Association (CRA) website also has information about the beauty of redwood. Founded in 1916, the California Redwood Association (CRA) is one of the oldest trade associations in the lumber industry.
