Ben Hill Renovations understands that redwood is a remarkable deck material in almost every way.
One of the characteristics of redwood is that if left unfinished redwood will initially turn black black and then slowly turn into a silver gray. It is highly stabile, making it less likely to cup and warp than treated wood. It is prized for its low shrinkage rate, minimizing any splitting. Noted for its longevity, redwood can last up to about 30 years on a well-maintained deck under good circumstances.
The warmth and rich luxury of genuine Atlanta redwood decks adds great value to your home.
Similar to redwood, fresh cut cedar will come in a wide range of honey/peach shades of light brown and when exposed to weather it will change in color to silver gray. Cedar’s heat resistant properties allow it to stay cool to the touch in summer heat. Cedar is typically more available and less expensive than redwood and composite decking.
Cedar is similar to redwood as both are from the same family of trees. Cedar however is more tensile strength than redwood meaning that it can flex more without shattering and is also less dense and has less natural oil that make it easier to accept stain.
