One look around Sacramento and it’s easy to see that you’re in “Redwood Country.” Just from a visual perspective, redwood is a bold and striking type of wood whether it’s being used for a porch, deck or single piece of furniture. For outdoor use, Redwood definitely has an edge over composite lumber when it comes to retaining heat: The redwood is going to be cooler in hotter temperatures.
“Redwood has a lot of advantages,” said Larry Stonum of the California Redwood Association. “There’s good and bad points about all decking; there’s no perfect product. But Sacramento is a great market for redwood. Redwood is recyclable, it’s sustainable, it’s cheaper (than composites), it stays cooler in summer and it’s California grown.”
How much redwood is in California? Around 900,000 acres are used for lumber in this state along. And those are all from privately owned family lumber mills. Yes, redwood is 100% Made in the USA! As for durability, the average redwood deck can last up to 20 years without much fuss. Take a little preventative care and you can stretch the longevity of that deck up to 30 years.
If all of this talk of redwood has you rethinking your own wood structures then perhaps it’s time to make the switch.
