What’s the best way to enjoy the outdoors close to home? If you have any space to spare on your property, then you have probably considered a deck or porch. Decks, porches, patios—they all make fantastic places for dining and drinking outdoors, and they can be integrated into your existing landscape in creative ways. As you know already, there are plenty of options when it comes to outdoor building materials, but few are as durable or beautiful as Canadian western red cedar.

At Kensington Garden Rooms, that’s the timber we prefer because we know that it continues to provide a long-lasting outdoor solution to our customers. But luxury decks and porches require more than just quality materials. They require quality craftsmanship and a commitment to precise construction and installation. As a leading provider of hand-constructed garden rooms and custom outdoor solutions, we want to make certain that you have exactly what you need to improve your home.

Canadian Western Red Cedar: The Premier Timber for Luxury Decks

Most homeowners like to do their own research before they purchase anything. When it comes to home improvement, there are numerous resources online and at your local hardware store. If you’ve already begun to research decks and porches, then you’ve probably seen a number of different materials, including pressure–treated lumber as well as composite decking made out of recycled wood fiber and plastic.

While these offer affordability, pressure–treated lumber is heavily processed with a host of chemical preservatives, and composite decking feels like walking on plastic. It’s hardly surprising that many still want the look and feel of real wood. Canadian western red cedar is one of the finest materials for patio decks, deck enclosures, and luxury porches. It is naturally weather and insect–resistant, it is light and functions well as a thermal insulator, and it looks gorgeous when sanded and oiled.

Complement Your Luxury Deck with a Garden Room

Even the most luxurious deck or porch is probably not enough for those looking for dining and entertaining. Our garden rooms (or gazebos) are built exclusively from red cedar as well as other high quality products, such as Sunbrella® canvas blinds. Most also include an HDTV, wine cooler, separate dining and lounge areas, and other amenities. Our deck gazebos give you all the pleasure of being outdoors with your family and friends, but with complete control over your comfort. You can simply let down the blinds and turn on the heat lamp if it gets chilly, or open it all up for some fresh air.
