Pressure-treated wood is the most popular option for new decks for its affordability and resistance to rot, mold, and insects. The downside to this material is that it’s prone to warping or cracking, requiring regular upkeep to maintain its appearance.
Other wood options include cedar and redwood, which provide a gorgeous natural color for your deck and tend to last longer than pressure-treated wood. The oils in the wood stave off rot and insects, and the material is lightweight yet durable. However, these types of wood require a new coat of sealant every few years and are pricier than pressure-treated wood options.
The final and most expensive option is hardwood.This material includes ironwood and tropical hardwoods like ipe and tiger wood. Hardwood is naturally resistant to bugs and rot, resilient enough to prevent scratches, and can last for more than 40 years with adequate maintenance.
Composite materials might be your best choice if you want a durable, low-maintenance alternative to wood decking. Composite decking consists of recycled plastics and wood fibers, meaning it won’t warp, splinter, or rot.While it’s more expensive than pressure-treated wood and materials like cedar or redwood, this environmentally friendly option is rapidly growing in popularity.
After contacting several other roofing contractors throughout the Twin Cities, my realtor suggested I contact Chad at Select Exteriors. Unlike every other contractor, Chad showed up on time and did everything he said he would do, when he said he would do them. He was honest, fair, and got a job done well in a very short timeframe. His price was reasonable and he communicated consistently throughout the job. We could not be any happier with the roof job done by Select Exteriors. Thank you to Chad and his team!
