No, it’s not too expensive. Cedar decks will require maintenance at least once a year to extend their life span. Cedar decking has to be maintained because frequent moisture, freezing, and wet weather conditions will age your cedar.
We recommend that every fall, you hire someone or take some time to clean your deck. In addition to washing it annually, we recommend that you also reseal it every other year.
