Western Red Cedar Deck in OttawaCustom Wood Decks Built in your Ottawa backyard – Ottawa Cedar Deck Builders!

 

A wooden custom cedar deck is the natural choice in Ottawa, but it does come with its disadvantages as well depending on the type of wood you choose.  There are three most common types of wood used for building decks:  pressure treated, cedar (western red & eastern white) or hardwood.  With a wood deck any design imaginable is possible for us to build, building you a custom deck would be our pleasure.

Pressure treated is a wood that is treated with non-toxic chemicals to increase the life of the wood.  Pressure treated is able to be stained just as any other wood is, it is also the least expensive material of all the decking materials available.

Cedar is a wood that has natural long lasting properties against rot, making it our favorite and best valued product to use.  We offer both western red cedar as well as eastern white cedar for our decks.  Our preference is the western red cedar which we get from The Wood Source located in Greely, Ontario……it is the best cedar in the Ottawa Valley.  A cedar deck is less expensive than PVC deck  or composite deck but more expensive than a pressure treated deck.  Cedar is also naturally easy to build with as it is a straight grained softwood with a beautiful finish.

Ipe is a hardwood often used in building decks that will last a lifetime.  Ipe is 4 times harder than maple so everything has to be predrilled.  This type of deck is gaining popularity as it is a high end long lasting product it’s price tag would be comparable to the price of a composite deck
