Cedar Decks - Care and Maintenance Tips

Although very durable, Western Red Cedar is natural wood and its life span, beauty, and performance can be enhanced and extended when protected against severe rain, snow, and sunny weather conditions. The horizontal surface will endure the wearing and abrasive effects of foot traffic, pets, and furniture scrapes.

Cedar is prized for its long-lasting qualities and beauty. To ensure that your deck will deliver decades of service, you’ll want to allow it to dry out after rain. Do this by keeping the surface swept free of leaves, pine needles, dirt, and other debris.

Every two to four years, your deck will need to be washed and a new stain or a water-repellent wood preservative finish applied.

Are you thinking about using cedar wood for your new deck? We have the expertise to answer your questions as you embark on this home improvement project!

How often should a cedar deck be sealed?

You should reseal and stain your cedar deck every two to three years.

What is the lifespan of cedar decks?

Depending on care and environmental factors, a cedar deck may endure up to fifteen to twenty years or longer. It’s a hard wood that doesn’t absorb moisture and is inherently resistant to rot, deterioration, and insect infestations.

How can I prevent the greying of my cedar deck?

Applying a protective finish, staining your wood, or doing both is the best method to preserve its warm orange and red tones.
