If you are building a new deck on your house one of the first things you might have thought of is what your building material options are.
In this day and age you will find a number of building material options all with good and bad points for your decking project.
The most common material for decking projects is the traditional wood deck. Soft wood is one of the more durable woods used in decking and it is durable, but will still erode due to weather and so it will need maintenance.
Redwood is another options that are available in different grades with different colors, and quality.
As a professional landscape company in Utah we can go over your wood decking options, and help you pick the right material for your budget.
With a wood deck it is very important that you pay close attention to the wood, and have the proper maintenance performed in order to prevent damage to your deck.
Keep in mind the deck is part of your home and is not only a place to relax, but also brings value to your home.
If you’re on a budget the traditional wood decking might be the best option for you even with its maintenance needs.
Composite Wood Decking
For a family on a budget, you might think you need to eliminate a composite wood deck due to the higher cost of the material.
It is true that a composite wood deck costs more than traditional wood decking, but you will save money on long-term maintenance costs.
A few of the benefits our customers enjoy from this material is you don’t have to treat it, and it doesn’t suffer from the cracking and weather issues that traditional wood does.
