Question: Why Is Northern White Cedar the best wood to build with?

Answer:Northern white cedar is a superior wood in its resistance to the elements and is considered one of the longest-lasting woods,used in the lumbering industry today.
Cedar's closed cell structure deters moisture absorption, therefore hindering the internal growth of mold or mildew. The wood is rot and termite resistant and is used primarily in products which are in direct contact with water, moisture or soil.

Question:Will Cedar splinter and twist if it is exposed to the elements:

Answer: Cedar is a dimensionally stable wood, especially when kiln-dried, meaning it lies flat and stays straight, resisting the natural tendency as with other wood species to crack, providing a splinter sesistant and extremely smoother finish. Its natural preservative will also meant that it doesn not need to be treated and will not rot.

Question: Can I stain or do I need to add preservatives to the exposed wood?

Answer: Northern White Cedar does not need a preservative. The finishing color or stain is completely up to you. Some folks prefer to allow the exposed Northern White Cedar to “naturally age” outdoors without any finish at all. this way, the furniture is visually harmonious with the landscape. Over time, the color will weather from a light tan to a handsome silver-gray highlighted by darker streaks, some variation of color is dependant on the amount of sunlight vs shade.

Question: What support will I get after purchase?

Answer:All of our kits follow a systematic process, if you have any problems or concerns about the set up process, I will be more then happy to guide you through the process.
