How Long Does the Wood Last on a Cedar Deck?

A cedar deck can last a lifetime if properly maintained. Cedar decking is a naturally rot-resistant wood, which turns gray once you allow it to sit in the sun. It’s more environmentally-friendly option than chemically-treated lumber or man-made composites. It provides a deck that does not use any chemicals in the construction of the lumber. Many environmental factors determine the lifespan of a cedar deck & will diminish it natural defenses towards rotting without any protection from these elements: seasonal changes, hot sun exposure freezing & thawing. Lifespan of an unmaintained deck to 10 to 15 years. Maintenance includes power-washing, sanding, sealing with a vapor barrier (keeps moisture from entering the wood) & replacing deck boards. A cedar deck that gets proper maintenance could last 25 to 40 years. Spot removal is done with a rotary tool & a nylon brush attachment dipped into a cleaning solution. Maintenance should include the underside of the deck. Cedar is the most maintenance-intense of all decking materials. Choose composite decking if you want a deck that requires no more maintenance than a periodic wash. Composite materials cannot rot. These composites are also the most expensive of all decking material. The Association does have a specific information on approved composite materials. Please contact Architectural Control Committee (ACC) for further information.

North and South Novi Road at 12 Mile Road CLOSED
By Gayle C. Hinman on August 8, 2019
Community Relations Specialist Nathan Mueller, City of Novi
The full closure of north and south Novi Road at 12 Mile Road took place Friday morning. There is no access to 12 Mile Road from Novi Road. The Davis BP gas station on the northwest corner remains accessible for gas and convenience store purposes. Motorists are not to use the gas station solely as a cut through to 12 Mile Road. Not only is it not safe, it's also illegal.
Watch for a pink & white Novi Police vehicle
By Gayle C. Hinman on August 2, 2019
Community Relations Specialist Nathan Mueller, City of Novi
Keep an eye out for Novi's new pink and white police vehicle that is at the Susan G. Komen Michigan 3-Day today and tomorrow and will be used over the next couple months. Starting October 14, the vehicle will be at various events around the City and for a $5 donation to the Ascension Believe in Miracles Fund, people can sign the pink portions with the name of a loved one or a wish for someone who has been impacted by breast cancer.
Water and Sewer Bills Increase
By Gayle C. Hinman on July 31, 2019

Community Relations Specialist Nathan Mueller, City of Novi
Novi residents will see a slight increase on their water and sewer bills of 1.6%, which is far less than the regional average. We are able to keep increases low due to several proactive measures, including the water storage facility that allows us to purchase water at a cheaper rate and pump to residents off peak hours. Check out the video with DPW Direction Jeff Herczeg to learn more.
Novi Police enforcing the 25mph speed limit
By Gayle C. Hinman on July 31, 2019

Community Relations Specialist Nathan Mueller, City of Novi
Novi Police will be enforcing the 25mph speed limit on South Lake Drive over the coming weeks due to several reports of speeding vehicles. There are a lot of residents on that road, including many who must cross it to get to the lake. Slow down and avoid having you summer ruined with a speeding ticket.
Update on the 12 Mile & Novi Road intersection
By Gayle C. Hinman on July 31, 2019
Community Relations Specialist Nathan Mueller, City of Novi
Some contractor-related delays have slowed the project at the intersection of 12 Mile and Novi Road. The plan is to switch to Stage 2 at some point next week, which means Novi Road will be closed north and south at 12 Mile Road. It is our hope to have the road reopened by the end of August or early September. All businesses will be open during the road closure, and the detour around the intersection is Meadowbrook Road.
