Our woodwork is stronger and longer lasting than woodwork produced by others. Why? Because we use better materials!
Douglas Fir, in addition to being cost effective, is extremely strong, exceptionally beautiful, and rot resistant
Western Cedar is a great outdoor use wood that has been the standard throughout the US for many decades. Usually when people say simply "cedar", this is the wood they are referring to. It is highly resistant to decay and very beautiful, and we use only CLEAR Western Cedar so there are NO KNOTS. You simply cannot find a better grade of wood (because it doesn't exist)! This results in very beautiful, and very stable millwork. Our Western Cedar consists of both Western Red and Incense cedars.
Port Orford Cedar (called White Cedar in some localles) is highly resistant to decay, is stronger and more dense than all other cedars, and machines to a smoother finish. In fact, it is 45% stronger, denser, and harder than all other cedars, redwood, and pine. Also it is a creamy white color which allows for limitless options on staining, and the color will not bleed through paint as sometimes happens with darker woods. All this means products made from Port Orford Cedar will simply look better in the decades to come.
Grades used: We use both CLEAR and SELECT TIGHT KNOT grades of wood in our products. When Select Tight Knot is used, only the best pieces are used of that grade. Because of the nature of our products, we can often “cut around” the knots, so even our STK products often end up clear.
