Cedar Patio Pavilions
Why buy a cedar pavilion:
The western red cedar wood from which our pavilions are made from, contain oily fibers that act as natural preservatives to help the wood resist rot and decay. These naturally occurring oils also give off that distinct cedar aroma that makes it unattractive to insects, moths, and other pests. The cedar pavilion readily takes most exterior paints and stains. However, if the pavilion is left unfinished, the cedar wood will weather to a silver-gray color, a no-maintenance look preferred by many. Each piece of wood is carefully planned, then hand-sanded to ensure the highest quality look that will make your patio pavilion a one-of-a-kind secluded retreat.

Covered Pavilions Made Out of One of the Finest American Woods
Western Red Cedars durability and decay resistance is excellent, and among North American wood species is a close second to only the California Redwood. With the natural patina (graying) happening over the years it is a maintenance-free option for natural wood lovers. The aromatic odor that makes it most appealing to me is the same thing that makes it repugnant to insects.
Western Red Cedar is also lighter than most woods making it perfect for a DIY project. If you are looking for a less aged look then cedar also takes well to certain stains. We do not recommend painting cedar, which should be done with cheaper woods since the oils can make it splotchy. These are the reasons why our western red cedar is easily our most commonly sold wood for our outdoor structures, pergolas, gazebos, and pavilions.
