Garden Gates

Do we need to stain or seal the gate?

Not really. The finish industry will have you believe that you in fact do need to apply a seal coat.  But Cedar is not fir, or any other species for that matter; there are inherent properties that make cedar a desirable exterior wood.

Do you discount to the trade?

We do not offer discounts, per say, to the trade. Because we are a build-to-order business of custom products, our discounts, if any, are dished out sparingly and relegated mostly to the native sons and daughters of those regions we simply seldom hear from. Such as Mississippi. And North Dakota. And Wyoming. There is not,
