The original and still most common decking choice, wood is natural, strong and feels great under bare feet. Even though all wood naturally weathers to a gray color, it should be cleaned and re-stained every two to three years to keep it looking its best. Nothing matches the natural beauty of real wood — its warmth, color and grain variations enhance a deck, and seem to flow more readily into the outdoor surroundings. Common woods for decking include Cedar, Redwood, Mahogany, Teak and Ipe.
A popular choice for decking is pressure-treated lumber. Pressure-treating woods such as fir, hemlock, and pine will greatly improve the wood’s resistance to weather and insects, so it lasts considerably longer. The treatment process gives the wood a green or brown tint, which some people find attractive and some don’t. And while this is still natural wood with all its inherent grain characteristics, there are also small slots at regular intervals along the face of the wood where the treatment chemicals are injected. With a proper design a pressure treated deck is a good investment and will last for decades.
Most composites are manufactured from wood byproducts (sawdust, wood chips, etc.) and recycled plastics. Combining synthetic and organic materials captures the best of both worlds, creating a durable product that looks and feels similar to wood decking. The number one benefits of composite products is longevity you can expect your composite deck to withstand the most severe weather conditions for decades without any additional treatment or protection.
