Choose Humboldt Redwood for many reasons, including natural beauty, natural strength, and natural durability. For these reasons, and many more, Humboldt Redwood is the perfect material for that deck, garden structure, planter box, or landscaping project you’ve been considering. Humboldt Redwood’s unique combination of aesthetic appeal, warm color, versatility, strength, and long-lasting durability make it an unparalleled building material. What’s more, Humboldt Redwood is a renewable resource harvested using Sustainable Redwood Forestry practices. Humboldt Redwood is also environmentally friendly. Renewable, recyclable, and biodegradable, the environmental impact of Humboldt Redwood is minimal.
Looking for other reasons to choose Humboldt Redwood? Try some of these on for size:
- Humboldt Redwood’s warm, inviting color is renowned. The rich red heartwood and creamy yellow sapwood combine to form a unique grain, pattern, and character distinct to each board. While alternative, artificially manufactured products, including plastic decking, try to mimic the look and feel real Humboldt Redwood, they usually come up short.
- Humboldt Redwood stands up to the elements. It is naturally resistant to insects and decay. It resists warping, splitting, and stays comfortable to bare feet even on the hottest, sunniest days. That’s important in warm climates, like ours in Southern California, helping to keep children and pets safe in hot temperatures.
- Humboldt Redwood has earned a Class B fire rating. This means it may be used without restriction in fire hazard areas, including the state of California’s designated Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) zones.
- The workability of Humboldt Redwood is legendary. Its popularity with builders, contractors, and homeowners can be attributed to its versatility and ease of use. Humboldt Redwood is easy to nail, drill, saw, and glue, without use of expensive, specialty tools. When building a Humboldt Redwood deck, all you will need are standard woodworking tools. Humboldt Redwood also has little pitch or resins, making it very accepting of paints, stains, and other coatings.
