Quality Decks Start with Quality Materials

Wood Decking

Cedar and pressure-treated woods are your best options for a wood deck. Cedar looks the most natural and proves rot resistant. It also doesn’t absorb moisture. The same holds true for pressure-treated woods, but they come in a wide range of grades. If you do opt for pressure-treated wood choose from the higher grades, which often are kiln-dried before and after being pressure treated. Check out the benefits and limitations to a wood deck compared to composites.
