I need to make a new storm door since the previous one rotted. It was made of pine and developed decay quite quickly in the dado slots holding floating panels.
I am thinking about using cedar because of its higher resistance to decay, but I'm concerned about its strength and movement due to moisture changes. Is this a reasonable choice? (I live in the northern United States in an area where rain and snow are concerns.)
The previous door was painted and I plan to paint this one.
