If you are like most of us with an outdoor space you’ve had visions fueled by images online and in magazines of that beautiful sprawling cedar deck. We believe the greatest materials for a real wood deck starts with cedar. Whether you are the home owner willing to do the proper research and prep or the contractor that builds decks often, you don’t want to be using materials that will leave your deck unsightly or needing repairs in a short amount of time. That is why Angeles Millwork and Hartnagel Building Supply stock Kiln Dried 5/4 Radius Edge Kiln Dried Cedar Decking.
Kiln dried cedar will leave you a happy deck builder and have your boards laying flat and straight. Kiln drying ensures the lumber you purchase is straight, free of splits, and that it will remain so well after you have secured the last fastener. Kiln drying begins after the wood has been cut and the wood is heated in a controlled environment to approximately 125 degrees. This creates reduced moisture in the board leaving it extremely stable and dry so it won’t warp once installed and will even allow sealing and staining after completion of the build.
Kiln dried cedar should most always be used when building a deck and as long as it was installed with the proper knowledge it will have very minimal expansion gaps, warping or checking.
So don’t be fooled by competitor’s green cedar which will need to season before a sealant or stain is applied. Stop on in and talk with one of our sales professionals about using Kiln Dried 5/4 Radius Edge Cedar Decking and get yourself a deck worthy of a photo shoot full of great grain patterns, exceptional color, and beautiful knots.
