You may be looking at cedar wood for sale as the wood you want to use for your new deck because of its durability to be used in a variety of settings outdoors. Just remember, you want to select the heartwood, as this is the cut which is approved for outdoor usage without preservative treatments, since it contains extractives that are toxic to decay-causing fungi. In the event heartwood is not available, you could use a different cut, but you have to treat the wood prior to installing your deck.
Whether you select the heartwood or another cut of cedar wood, you will want to consider sealing the wood against the elements using appropriate products. These items are normally offered in both clear coats and a variety of stains and colors. By sealing the wood, you protect it against water, rot, and changing color from exposure from the UV rays of the sun. Some people do not mind if the wood changes colors with age. However, it is important to still seal the wood and protect it from moisture and water.
