I have just returned from a trip to the Minnesota and Wisconsin regions. Redwood has taken hold, once again, and is making strong inroads into the decking market! Little Redwood was shipped to regions out of California for many years. There is an entire generation of consumers who are not familiar with the Redwood species. As a matter of fact, one of our customers was asked, at a home show, if a piece of Redwood was “real” lumber!! Yes, it is real! And it is returning to the deck and backyard prominence of old! Please take a moment to view our introductory video. More in the series, California Backyard Lifestyle, are following. If you read this blog and are looking for samples, please call us at 800-862-5657 and we will make sure you receive a decking sample, promptly!!
