Redwood: Heartwood Vs. Sapwood

Heartwood redwood typically has been sold in lumber yards and has given redwood an outstanding reputation amongst builders for both interior and exterior applications.

Unfortunately, almost all of the big box stores and a number of our competitors carry a number of sapwood redwood products at their locations. Easily distinguishable by it’s white color, sapwood (especially in wet weather) can begin to rot out or be attacked by pests in as quickly as five or six months.

WHY SPEND YOUR MONEY ON A PRODUCT THAT DOESN’T LAST!?!

When purchasing your redwood lumber, make sure to ask for an all heart product. Unfortunately, many uninformed homeowners ask their contractors simply for a redwood fence or deck, and what they receive is a cheap, inferior product. Fortunately for you, Lumber Out West only sells the highest quality redwood products that are free of Sapwood.  Give us a call toll-free at 866-972-7301 or email us for a free quote.
