Not to mention it's beautiful.
Western Red Cedar is durable, eco-friendly and stylish. As a native species it naturally resists rot and insects, boldly standing up to rainy winters and wet springs. It's the only wood that meets our standards.
From elegant dark stains to chic bleaches to beautiful semi-transparents, natural cedar can be finished to complement any style of home. Additionally, cedar decks can easily be sanded down and refinished at any time, allowing your outdoor area to change looks as you see fit.
We build custom stairs for decks of all sizes. From straight and simple to complex and sophisticated. We offer ornamental spiral stairs to save space while adding an elegant flare.
Add custom lighting to your deck to create a whole new ambience. You’ll never have to cut those warm summer evening parties short again.
Complete your new deck with matching benches to create an even more comfortable space for you and your guests. Read a book, sip a cold drink, or just enjoy the view.
Living in the Northwest is beautiful, but we pay for it in rain and hard to predict weather. Extend the use of your deck year-round with a gorgeous deck or patio cover.
Durability in the Pacific Northwest
The advantages of Western Red Cedar go beyond aesthetic. Cedar stands out among coniferous woods in it’s superior resistance to warping, twisting, and checking. Additionally, it has a very low shrinkage factor, making it perfect for Northwest homes.
Long prized by the native peoples of the Pacific coast for its outstanding longevity and ability to withstand weather conditions, cedar stands as one of the primary elements they have used for building, century-after-century. In fact, many indigenous cedar artifacts are still in excellent condition today.
In addition to its long-lasting qualities, cedar can also be easily touched up at any time to remove any accidental dings or scratches.
All-Natural & Sustainably Harvested
Western Red Cedar, botanically known as Thuja plicata, is the only species of its kind native to western North America. In addition to cedar being indigenous to our area, it is sourced from some of the most sustainably managed forests in the world, meaning the wood is harvested at a slow enough rate that the forest will be able to regenerate itself as quickly—and sometimes faster—than the rate at which the cedar is harvested.
The wood itself is also remarkably ecological; cedar is grown naturally, and, when sourced from the Pacific Northwest, is never treated with any potentially harmful chemicals or preservatives.
Make it Better.
Why build a beautiful wood deck only to mar it with screws? That’s why every Cedar or Hardwood deck we build utilizes the Camo-Screw®, an efficient way to apply angled screws which are completely hidden from sight.
Get more use out of the area below your new deck.
With a waterproofing system on your deck you can turn the space underneath into a new seating area during the winter months or storage area for your lawnmowers, summer chairs, bbq, sleds—FREE UP YOUR GARAGE!
Your house should be our top priority.
Hands down, the most important part of building a deck is how water is prevented from getting into the house where the deck attaches. If gone unnoticed, which it often is, water leakage can cause serious damage to a house in the long term.
Protection from the unseen.
Lumber is most vulnerable on the edges where it has been cut, which means your deck’s frame is a potential source for water damage. Unlike the surface, this damage can go unnoticed for several seasons causing major structural damage. This is precisely why we use G-Tape, which prevents water damage for the long-haul.
