Although this particular species of lumber is available in a variety of grades, they are consistently durable and gorgeous. The Western Red Cedar Lumber Association (WRCLA) has established four different grades of cedar decking:

  • Architect Clear has an attractive appearance and extreme durability, and is usually a custom order
  • Custom Clear has a good appearance and is generally used in fine woodwork
  • Architect Knotty is typically found in a rustic look with few visible knots
  • Custom Knotty is hole-free and economical yet durable decking material

These various grades are determined mostly on appearance; and, as mentioned, each type ranks high on the durability meter. Cedar decks are quite resistant to insects and fungi thanks to two naturally occurring preservatives found in the fiber of cedar wood. Cedar decks absorb little of the moisture that allows for rot which means your cedar deck will maintain its appearance and structural integrity for years to come.
