DECK SEASON'S COMING ...
We know homeowners want to make the best decision for their home investment they also want: exceptional appearance, low maintenance, and a value price-point. Listed below are 4 decking options to help you decide what is best for your new deck.
1.The Economic Answer: Pressure-Treated Lumber
Despite all the competition, this ubiquitous green-tinted wood is still the No. 1 decking material sold today. In fact, according to Arch Treatment Technologies, a leading producer of wood preservatives, approximately 75 percent of all new decks are finished with pressure-treated (PT) lumber.
2. Naturally Superior: Redwood and Cedar
For many purists, the only choices for decking are redwood or red cedar. Both of these western softwoods are prized for their rich color and natural beauty, and because they aren't pumped full of chemicals or preservatives. Both species contain tannins and oils that make them naturally resistant to rot, decay and voracious insects.
3. Exotic Import: Tropical Hardwoods
Massaranduba, cumaru, red tauari, tigerwood, ipe, and Philippine mahogany are just some of the tropical hardwoods available for decking. These exotic, rich-grained woods are extremely hard, very durable and naturally resistant to rot and insects.
4.Better Board: Composites
Composite decking and its cousin, plastic lumber, represent the fastest-growing decking materials sold today. Most products are made from polyethylene or polyvinyl chloride, and come in a wide range of colors.
