Construction Heart or Con/Hrt as it is commonly known, has the same characteristics of Con/Com but does not have the Sapwood ( white wood). Although higher in price than Con/Com, Con/Hrt is an excellent value and gives a uniform, signature, red color to a deck.
Garden Lumber Grades
From Con/Com to Clear Heart, the large family of Redwood grades truly provides something for everyone. It has always been, and will always be, a source of pride to say, “I have a beautiful, natural, Redwood Deck!”
All grades of Redwood are available in both green form and dry form.
Construction Common Redwood
Construction Common or Con/Com as it is commonly referred to, is a very sought out grade for decking in backyard living space. The grade allows tight , sound knots. The grade allows Sapwood ( white in color as opposed to the red). This gives a very pleasing contrast to the deck.
