Prized for its timeless beauty and work-ability, Western Red Cedar is a perfect choice for decking by homeowners and contractors alike.
Naturally resistant to rot and decay, good quality Western Red Cedar decking will perform admirably in our damp Pacific Northwest climate for many years to come. Milled beautifully, it lies flat and stays straight; and because it is soft, no pre-drilling or special tools are required for installation.
We offer Western Red Cedar decking in a variety of widths and thicknesses, as well as grades. With all of this, it is easy to see why it is readily chosen over more expensive hardwoods and manufactured decking.
To help you design and build your dream deck using Western Red Cedar, the maximum spans for the various sizes on a continuous beam are as follows:
Thickness xWidth Grade Span
5/4 4 Clear 16”
5/4 4 Knotty 12”
5/4 6 Clear or Knotty 16”
2 4 Clear or Knotty 24”
2 6 Clear or Knotty 24”
To help you figure the correct amount of decking needed for your project, use the following footage calculations to cover 100 square feet:
Size Linear Feet
5/4×4 or 2×4 325
5/4×6 or 2×6 211
