Western Red Ceder Decking Boards

Western Red Cedar decking would have several application methods. A good deck builder should tell you that the ideal western red cedar decking is either skip sheathing, 1x8 boards spaced about 2 inches in between or strapping, 1x3 boards laid at the nailing points of the shingles. These types of western red cedar decking enable the wood to breathe. A good deck builder knows this allows it to saturate during rain, as well as dry evenly on both sides. If shingles do not breathe, then they will collect moss and lichen, cup and warp and fail prematurely.

A more modern deck builder would use a plywood deck, covered by 30 lb. felt and a "Cedar Breather", which is a light poly strand woven to allow the wood to remain about 1/4 of an inch above the deck. This product is about 10 years old, and the overall longevity as compared to an open deck, is yet to be tested by all of the deck builder community.

This type of western red cedar decking works very nicely if your yard is on a slope or is already terraced. A deck builder would insert flagstones into the grass, or sand, to form a smooth surface along the top of the terrace.

A deck builder could blend the western red cedar decking into the terracing and may be further enhanced with a stone wall surrounding it, or an outdoor fireplace. This is a good choice if you want something unusual.
