We maintain redwoods by applying a good quality sealer before using the redwood to construct wood decks and reapply this sealer over a period of time. As a decking material, redwood is known to be naturally stable and resists every form of warping.
The stability of redwood ensures your wood decks look great for a very long time. Redwood is known to contain very little and sometimes no resins which helps it retain finishes perfectly. As a professional Independence deck builder, we know everything about these redwoods and where to find the choicest logs and boards for your wood decks.
Cedar has always been considered to be a type of softwood and it has been used for many generations for residential and commercial woodwork purposes. Cedar has a natural powerful resistance to insects and rots, which makes it a desirable wood for many woodworks.
It is however not always the best wood for your wood decks, because it can weaken and splinter under heavy pressure and traffic. We can use this type of wood for the balustrade of your wood decking railings, your privacy fencing, and structures like planters and pergolas.
We are honest enough to advise you on what species of wood is suitable for your wood decks and which ones are not strong enough to give you the best quality wood decks.
Pressure-treated lumber is both insect and rot-resistant. We often use this type of wood as a support system due to its ability to hold up well. We never recommend or use this type of wood for wood decks because they can be unstable, shrink and twist.
Ipe is a natural hardwood popularly used in the 60s and logged from the ancient old-growth forests of Southern America. It has always been a good option for wood decks among professional deck builders. Ipe is strong, durable, and affordable. It has great termite and mildew resistance as well. It has a smooth finish and tight grain structure that prevent splintering when used for the construction of wood decks.
