Good Woods to Use Outside

Are you thinking about using wood for your home’s outdoor area, whether it’s to build a deck, fence, furniture, or any other outdoor feature? If so, you’ll want to find wood in Kansas City that is durable, can withstand the elements, and is also easy on the eyes. The following are a few woods that are great for outdoor use:

Because your outdoor wood feature is going to be exposed to elements such as rain, you’ll want to make sure that it is naturally resistant to rot. Some of the better rot-resistant wood choices include teak, California redwood, bald cypress, and black locust.  Ipe is also a great choice, and one that provides a unique beauty as well. Other great options include western red cedar, European larch and Loblolly pine.

When choosing your wood, make sure that it has been certified by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council). This ensures that the wood you are using has come from a sustainable source.

Look for sustainable rot-resistant wood for outdoor use. If you are trying to find wood in Kansas City that is of high quality, then be sure to contact us at Schutte Lumber today.
