Alternative Decking & Railing
In addition to western red cedar we also carry a number of other decking options.
Although Western Red Cedar is the exterior wood for which we are best known, our stock of beautiful Ipe decking material has turned a lot of heads since we began carrying it 5 years ago. Ipe, as a decking wood is next to perfect. This beautiful exotic species from South America is hard, strong, and naturally resistant to rot, abrasion & weather. Ipe lumber is almost twice as dense as most woods and up to 5 times harder. It comes in long lengths from 8’-20’ and is clear of knots. Ipe is quite a stable wood meaning that it will have very little warping, cupping or shrinking. A deck made with this wood has a very refined look and will give you great enjoyment for 40+ years!
Thermory decking is a product that has only recently been introduced to Canada. It is an environmentally responsible hardwood decking that is 100% from renewable North American forests. This product delivers a beautiful, warm looking decking which meets the class 1 Durability rating (25 years against rot and decay). Thermory is end matched using the trademarked JEM joint. The result is easy and quick installation as the joints between boards do not need to rest on joists. Find out more at the Thermory website.
