Our standard Redwood grade is a quality B Grade Clear. This grade is a kiln-dried Architectural Grade, which is the highest category of Redwood grades. It has a color mix of red and tan. A few small tight knots may be present in some boards. Often used outside, Redwood holds paint well and is very weather resistant. However, Redwood's more open grain can produce a slightly rougher finish when used for scrollwork. Redwood is less susceptible to shrinkage, warping and checking than most other woods used outside. It has natural oils and resins that help prevent rot decay and insect attack. Other grades of Redwood are available if required, please inquire.
