Easy Maintenance

Redwood gives you legendary durability that holds up to the elements with natural beauty. You can keep the surface color looking like new with a finish that accentuates the character of the wood, or choose the no-maintenance option and let your redwood age gracefully, taking on a distinct gray-weathered look over time.

For a long-lasting, warm-red appearance, just apply a finish and keep your redwood clean. Redwood's unique cell structure lets it hold a finish better than other woods, so simply refinishing your redwood every few years can keep it looking like new. Redwood won't stain like composites and plastics so you don't have to worry about barbecue grease or red wine, and you can always restore faded redwood to its original color.

Redwood gives you years of care-free performance with heartwood that is distinctively elegant and naturally resistant to insects and decay. Year after year, redwood beauty endures.
