Mendocino redwood is a rich, inviting surface material for your home’s porch.
The old-fashioned porch is new again as families look to connect with their friends and neighbors. Mendocino redwood porches can be a beautiful, inviting space that adds a touch of elegance to the family home.
Imagine the beauty of a redwood porch flanking the entrance to your home. Mendocino redwood’s rich, unique color is difficult to duplicate with artificial materials. If, however, you prefer to match the color of your redwood porch to that of your home, you can do that as well. Redwood has an open-celled structure and contains little to no pitch or resins. This enables redwood to absorb and retain all types of finishes extremely well.
While your redwood porch will be naturally beautiful, it will also be durable. Redwood heartwood is naturally resistant to insects and decay. Redwood is also versatile and lightweight. If you want to add a bench, planter box, or swing to your porch, you can do all of that and more with redwood! Regular woodworking tools are all that is needed to build the perfect redwood porch.
