Actual size of decking is 1.0″ x 5.5″
Cedar decking is a natural wood, which means that not all boards are identical or completely flawless
Delivered decking may have small knots, checks, or slight defects, so a small amount of extra lumber should be ordered to account for this.
NOTE: Uninstalled prefinished cedar needs to be stored in a dry location, or unpacked and laid out flat. (When water is trapped between boards and not allowed to evaporate or run off, it will damage the finished surface of the board, and would require sanding and refinishing).
