Pressure Treated Decks
The most cost effective or least expensive deck you can install is pressure treated pine wood construction. There are other types of decking material out there like other types of wood or composite materials, but if price is a factor, you can’t get a better product for the money than building with pressure treated pine. Typically southern yellow pine is used because of its fast growing abilities and is later treated with chemicals at very high pressure to penetrate the wood. These chemicals make the pressure treated wood more durable and resistant to rot and termites.
For many people, the only construction material choice is cedar. Cedar wood is prized for its rich colors and natural beauty and because it’s not pumped full of preservatives. Cedar wood also contains both tannins and oils which makes them naturally resistant to rot, decay and insects which makes it a great choice for deck construction. Cedar comes in four grades of decking the most expensive being the clearest cedar. Make sure you know what you’re getting when you receive cedar construction estimates. Please be aware that if your cedar deck is not stained that it will eventually weather to a soft silvery gray.
