Classic Heart Redwood is described as having a complex, yet uniform red color. It stays cooler under-foot even in hot climates, the product has the highest flame rating in Class B wood and is cheaper than composite decking. No other softwood has the rich beauty or the long-lasting performance of redwood and most other softwoods can’t hold paint, stain or other coatings as well as redwood products.
The California Redwood Company has been committed to the sustainability and the future of the redwood trees on the northwestern California coast for more than 123 years. Their products are certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) and the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC) which verifies their wood is harvested from well-managed timberlands operations.
