Frank,

I would ask the contractor for the specs on the three grades of cedar being offered. Perhaps even ask for samples. In my area grade 1 cedar would be knot free whereas grade 3 would contain a considerable number of knots. The difference between the three grades would be in appearance (e.g., knot free vs. lots of knots) and not necessarily in the durability of the deck.
