Quality Pressure Treated Decks
Many choose pressure treated lumber for decking materials. Pressure treated decks are the most affordable option. With the right treated wood, you could have a brand that carries a lifetime, limited warranty.
Be sure you are choosing the right pressure treated wood for your new deck as inexpensive treated wood can shrink unevenly and absorb moisture. The last thing you need is a deck that twists and warps when it dries.
Premium pressure treated decks can last, though they cost about 40% more per linear foot. You have fewer knots and straighter grains and a longer lasting deck.
Natural Redwood Decks
Natural Redwood is a common decking material for a reason. It’s both beautiful and durable when properly maintained. The color is stunning in a rich red tone of the heartwood grades and equally beautiful yellow-tone of sapwood grades.
Redwood decks are resistant to insects and decay naturally. They are also resistant to fire. The material is extremely durable yet lightweight.
Redwood is well-known for aesthetics, symmetry, and environmental element resistance. It resists shrinking, warping, and splitting. For a deck material, Redwood is a most beautiful option.
Beautiful Cedar Decks
For a natural wood look, cedar decks offer a deep, red color and a rot resistant material. Cedar is resistant to moisture absorbency and can last up to 20 years as an elevated deck.
Cedar decks need to be resealed and cleaned every year or two to retain the durability and warm, rich color. The sealant helps to protect this softer wood material from furniture dragging and other damages.
Cedar is a moderate cost option that fits between pressure -treated wood and composite deck options. If you love the warm, reddish glow of cedar wood and enjoy the natural insect and moisture resistant it offers, this is the right choice in decking material for you.
Durable Composite Decks
Composite decks are highly desirable for their near-zero maintenance requirements. The material is made of recycled plastic and wood chips or sawdust. If you want a one-time deck build, composite is the way to go.
Cleaning and maintenance is easy, only requiring a simple spray from the hose. The composite deck materials will not rot, warp, or splinter and the material is defect free so every inch can be utilized.
Composite decks cost more than woods or pressure treated wood, but is highly worth it due to the longevity of the deck and decades of easy maintenance.
