WFP TRUESTYLE™ is the premier brand for natural wood decking and outdoor living products
▶ Western Red Cedar can be allowed to weather naturally to a silvery grey look, or a wide range of stains and coatings can be applied to ensure maximum performance.
▶ For best results coat all six sides before installation.
▶ New cedar decking that is going to be finished should be protected from the weather before finish has been applied.
▶ Allow product to acclimatize to the environment where it will be installed to avoid unwanted shrinkage or expansion.
▶ Fasteners with corrosion resistance should be used. Hot-dipped galvanized or stainless steel.
▶ Maintain your decking by keeping it free of dirt and debris. Avoid leaving objects like planters on your deck over the winter.
▶ Important Note: Never power-wash a deck because it damages the wood fibres.
