Which type of wood should I choose? (click here for entire answer)
Last Updated: 09/01/2020
We offer pressure-treated, kiln dried Pine, Cedar and Teak.

Pine is best for our budget-conscious clients and looks best in a solid paint (such as Black, White, Dark Gray, or a customized Benjamin Moore/Sherwin Williams paint color). Pine does have the tendency to warp over time, which is something we like to explain to all clients.

Cedar is a very stable wood that does not warp over time like Pine. Many homes up North are made of cedar to withstand the snow and rainfall. Cedar looks beautiful bare (to gray naturally over time), with a clearcoat sealant to preserve the original wood color, or in any of our other finish options. Cedar is very versatile, and it is our most frequently purchased.

Teak is our mack-daddy wood choice. Teak will last outdoors for 15+ years, and looks amazing bare or hand-oiled. Teak does not warp and it is a very hard wood.
