Alaskan Yellow Cedar Decking

Most people would agree that having a deck is an awesome addition to any home, or business!

Alaskan yellow cedar is one of our favorite decking materials for quite a few reasons and one of the most compelling is that it won't splinter! It is also quite weather resistant and will last for many, many years...

The most common alaskan yellow cedar (AYC) decking sizes are going to be nominally sized 5/4x4, 5/4x6, 2x4 and 2x6. We can provide wider or thinner AYC decking planks as well upon request. The most common pattern for yellow cedar decking is going to be material that is Surfaced Four Sides (S4S) and has radius edges.

Our yellow cedar decking products are available in both clear and knotty grades and whether you need clear or knotty fiber is often a personal preference based on the look you are going for and taking into consideration the budget you have set out for your decking project. As a general ballpark factor, you can expect clear material is going to be roughly twice the cost of knotty material.

Alaskan yellow cedar decking materials can come in both green and kiln dried. If you plan to stain your materials prior to installation, you will want to ordered kiln dried material or order it soon enough that you can have some time for drying at your jobsite prior to installation.
