Types of wood decks
Wood decks are the classic, go-to choice for outdoor spaces. There are a variety of options available when it comes to materials and design. Treated wood is one of the most popular material choices for decking because of its affordability and durability. Cedar also provides an attractive look with natural resistance to moisture, decay, UV rays, and insects. For those looking for a more luxury option, ipe is an exotic hardwood that offers a unique look and exceptional strength.
Ipe has become increasingly popular due to its impressive lifespan, low maintenance needs, and beautiful rich color tones. It is naturally resistant to rot and insect damage without any need for chemical preservatives or treatments. Ipe does come at a higher cost than treated wood or cedar but can last up to five times longer than either of these other materials making it worth the investment in the long run.
Treated wood is a great material for creating beautiful outdoor structures like decks, patios and more.
