Why Homeowners Opt for Wooden Decks

There is something so aesthetically pleasing about using natural wood to build your deck. Even though other types of materials may resemble wood closely, it is hard to beat the attractiveness of pure wood itself. There are also so many colors, textures, and grains that you have a huge range of selections to pick from. Not only are wooden decks so beautiful, however, but they are also quite affordable. Just discuss your own personal preferences with our knowledgeable professionals today. 

Multiple Types of Wood Decks to Consider for Your Home

Many homeowners initially focus on the color of their deck, prioritizing the shades and hues of their gorgeous, natural-looking extension of the property. Even though color is certainly an important part, the material of your deck itself is critical to consider before you even start the preparation process. Different types of wood have unique properties which make them more or less durable against weathering, resilient to dents and scratches, protected from fading. 

A few examples of woods you could choose from include:

  • Cedar – This type of wood is particularly effective at resisting water damage, and is known for having a long lifespan. It is important to have this wood pressure washed each year.
  • Redwood – Homeowners love this wood for its vivacious color, as well as its durability against both harsh weather conditions and insect damage. In addition to scheduling regular washing, redwood will require routine staining maintenance.
  • Pressure-treated wood – The way that pressure treatment works is that lumber, often from Douglas fir or Southern yellow pine, is sealed in a huge chamber, where special chemicals are thoroughly pressed into the wood. This makes the wood even stronger and more resistant to damage, while still being affordable.
  • Tropical hardwoods –  They may be a bit more expensive, but tropical woods like mahogany or IPE are some of the most beautiful and luxurious looking materials around. and they are also highly durable and safe from water absorption.
