Wood Materials The three common choices when it comes to wood decks are redwood, cedar and pressure-treated wood that can be made of various types of wood species. Redwood and cedar are both naturally insect and rot resistant and have a natural look, but each has its own inherent issues. Redwood Decking Redwood needs to be maintained by applying a sealer and reapplying it over time. It's also more expensive the farther away from the West Coast of the United States you live, as that's where it's grown. "As a decking material, it's naturally stable, so it resists warping," says Gordon Whittaker, owner of Alter Eagle. Redwood's stability helps it look great longer. It contains little or no resins, which enables it to retain finishes. "From an environmental standpoint, the choicest redwood is from old-growth trees and the supplies are dwindling," according to Tim Keating, executive director of Rainforest Relief, the lead U.S. organization trying to slow deforestation in the tropics and the U.S. "We're now down to 1 percent of the old-growth (redwood) trees," Tim explains.
