Red Cedar Decks

There’s just nothing like a wood deck.

Open your back door to the sight and scent of a real cedar wood deck. Now this is summer.

Cedar decks have long been the place where slip ‘n’ slide towels hang to dry, where ice cream sandwiches are devoured, and where the family dog noses around for crumbles of homemade hamburgers.

For many people, and for good reason, wood decks are a source of nostalgia. And they remain a popular decking material choice because they’re also incredibly affordable. At Empire, we want to give you the natural beauty of a wood deck, but we also want to help make sure you’re going to be able to enjoy it for years to come.

That’s why we love red cedar.

Red cedar decks offer:
  • Sturdiness. Red cedar is one of the best deck materials in the wood category because its natural oils resist decay and insects. Plus, unlike other soft woods, red cedar keeps its straight, flat shape over time.
  • Style. Your premium red cedar deck is custom built to suit your home’s modern or traditional feel. In addition to gazing at the stars when you’re outside, take in the rich grains of your beautiful wood deck.
  • Versatility. With a variety of sizes and grades to choose from, we’ll design a red cedar deck that’s perfect for your backyard and your budget.


Are you considering the strength and richness of red cedar for your deck? At Empire, we build cedar decks Ottawa homeowners treasure with professional craftsmanship and deck design. For a wood deck that’s perfect for your backyard and your budget, call Empire.


Professionals on deck

What would happen if you hired an incompetent contractor, or even tried to build your deck yourself? In addition to cost overruns, poor workmanship and missed deadlines, you’d probably have an unhappy spouse to answer to and a municipality that says your deck isn’t up to code. Oh, and then there’s the feeling of having been ripped off every time you enter your backyard, or frustration at the sight of your husband’s half-finished deck.


Protect your investment, get the job done and then show it off to friends with a professional deck design and construction by Empire, the Ottawa deck company homeowners trust. The proof is we’ve got an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, glowing testimonials, and an impressive inspiration gallery.
