What is Clear Larch?

Clear larch is a tree that grows in Siberia, Canada, North America, Finland, and other cold regions. Clear larch is the most dense wood material among softwoods. Also it is the most durable material among softwoods. European larch can be used for decking, flooring, and fencing.

Boards made of Clear larch are very smooth. Unlike ipe or redwood, the color of these boards varies from yellow to light brown. This material is ideal for those who are looking for light wood for their deck.

Pros and cons of Clear larch decking

Larch decking advantages

  • Resistance to severe frosts and severe weather conditions. This feature is especially important for those who live in Canada, where winters are cold.
  • Light color boards, which are difficult to find for those who want a wooden deck. Typically wood boards range from red-brown to dark brown.
  • Resistance to scratches and mechanical damage due to strength and hardness.
  • Natural protection against insects due to the presence of resin that repels them.
  • Moisture protection due to high density.
  • Ease of installation - larch is easy to drill, process, grind, and glue.
  • Simple maintenance since the tree can absorb some stains.
  • Low price relative to other wood materials. Larch boards are cheaper than ipe or tigerwood decks.
  • long service life: a deck made from this tree lasts 30-70 years.
  • The natural appearance that only a real tree can have.

Clear larch decking disadvantages

  • The strength of the wood is not sufficient to withstand strong and regular loads. Therefore, this material is not recommended to be installed in public places where hundreds of tourists walk every day or on highways where cars constantly drive.
  • You should not put a deck of larch in very humid regions - it is resistant to decay, but its protection from moisture is not absolute. In addition, regular exposure to water can lead to deformation of the boards.
  • There may be knots on the boards, so it is not recommended to walk on them barefoot;
  • Boards need to be oiled regularly to keep their color. Without staining once a year, the boards fade and become gray.

Larch decking boards features

Larch decking board size is 5/4x6. They are available in grooved and ungrooved profiles. The actual thickness of larch boards is 21 mm, which is thicker than 1”. Boards are available in two lengths: 4 and 6 meters. When choosing this material, it should be taken into account that the boards are less dimensionally stable - and this must be taken into account when installing the deck.

Clear larch decking maintenance

The Larch deck is easy to maintain. Everyday debris and dust can be swept away with a broom or a stiff brush. Once every six months, the decking should be washed with warm water and soap.

The owners of such a deck need to remember that larch fades in the sun and eventually becomes gray. For the boards to retain their natural light brown hue, they need to be coated with larch decking oil. The procedure should be carried out every year.

Unlike other types of wood, larch decking does not need to be sanded or sealed. In this regard, European larch is easier to care for than ipe or cumaru boards.

Larch deck is the sweet spot between expensive ipe decking and affordable but not durable composite decking. It is stronger than composite decking, lasts longer, and is resistant to rot and cracking. And although larch is inferior in hardness to brazil hardwood, its price remains affordable for everyone who does not plan to install a deck in crowded places.
