Why buy a cedar pergola:
The western red cedar wood from which our pergolas 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 make it unattractive to insects, moths, and other pests.
The cedar pergola readily takes most exterior paints and stains. However, if the pergola 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 backyard a one-of-a-kind secluded retreat.
Outdoor Pergolas: Western Red Cedar
Advantages and disadvantages of western red cedar:
Our western red cedar is probably the most common wood that we sell for our Outdoor Structures Pergolas, Gazebos, And Pavilions. This type of wood is a little more expensive than your pressure treated wood
Western Red Cedar will turn gray over time unless treated with sealant every few years. Cedar’s durability and decay resistance is excellent, and among North American wood species is a close second to California Redwood.
Cedar is much lighter and easier to work with than most wood. Not to say that the smell of cedar is so good.
