To make your dream deck a reality you need the right products – starting with a solid deck wood. The best wood for decks should have considerable strength for structural stability, be weather and water resistant, and durable enough to last for years and years.
Humboldt Redwood is one of nature’s finest and strongest building materials with shear strength up to five times greater than other types of deck wood and plastic composite decks. All this strength and durability comes packaged in a lightweight wood that’s easy to work with, which helps to keep construction costs low. On top of all these benefits, Humboldt Redwood decking is an attractive material. It’s rich, warm color and tight grain pattern will look great even as it ages.
