Thinking about adding a deck onto your home? If so, then you’ve come to the right place. At North American Deck and Patio, we’ve built thousands of decks, and have worked with many homeowners in Maryland. We wanted to take some time today to talk about all of the different decking material options available to you.
Pressure-treated wood is one of the most common materials used to construct decks, for a few reasons. Pressure-treated lumber contains insecticides and chemicals with anti-rot properties, which means decks made from it will last a long time. Additionally, pressure-treated wood is usually among the cheapest of decking material options.
Polyvinyl chloride plastics are extremely resilient, and last for years and years. PVC decking comes in a wide range of design options. Popular colors include:
PVC decking will last you a long time, and more than likely, will still be around when you sell your house. While they do last longer, you likely will also have to pay a little more upfront compared to the cost of a wood deck.
Composite decking has been growing in popularity over the years, and for good reason. It’s long-lasting, comes in a variety of different colors and designs, and costs about the same as traditional wooden decks. Composite decking is low-maintenance and doesn’t require any sanding or refinishing.
