Western Red Cedar Decking

Western Red Cedar (WRC) decking substantially outperformed composite decking in each of the seven criteria tested and was by far the product with the least environmental impact when compared with both virgin and recycled wood-plastic composite decking products.  Even after subjecting the cedar decking results to a ‘worst case’ scenario in which WRC required the replacement of 20% of boards in normal service and periodic application of coatings, the environmental impact results remained strongly favorable to Western Red Cedar over the ‘best case’ scenario for composite decking.
