Decks can come in many variations. You can decide what type of materials you would like your deck to be built out of.

There are many options for deck materials but what is used on every deck project is treated wood. Treated wood is wood that has been treated with a special coating the stops it from being affected from the harsh weather. This type of wood is specially designed to be outside where as other untreated woods have a much more difficult time in weather conditions. The treatment stops the wood from rotting or degrading. The treated wood would go unseen as it is used to support the deck and would not be visible. Using quality materials such as treated wood not only prevents danger but also increase the longevity of your deck.

For building the actual deck you have options of using natural materials like different woods or you also have the option of using man made materials. They both have their pros and cons.

You could use treated lumber to build the whole deck if you would like. Cedar is also a great material to use.

Cedar is very beautiful and is used on many homes today. It is very popular because of its natural properties. It does not absorb water and it naturally repels insects. It also ages very beautifully through time if you keep it bare or you can paint it and make it last even longer. Cedar has been proven to last in really harsh weather conditions like hail.

Wood is great because the material is a lot cheaper up front, the downfall to wood is that it requires some maintenance to keep it sealed and looking beautiful. If it is maintained, wood will leave you with a very beautiful deck that will have the natural wood grains that set it apart from others. Wood is by far the most popular option for decks.

While maintaining can help prevent damages, another benefit of using wood is how much cheaper it can be to repair. As mentioned earlier, wood is cheaper up front making repairs cheaper if you were to use different materials.

Man made materials that are used to build decks are either composite, PVC, or vinyl. These tend to last a very long time and require very little maintenance. The only downside to using these materials is that the actual material cost is going to be higher up front but in the long term it would end up costing less because of the very little maintenance.

Now that we have explained the different kind of materials that you can decide on for building the deck we can start to build the deck for you. We build the decks very quickly and efficiently without getting in your way.

We can add a sealant to your deck to protect it from the harsh weather. Paint can be added to the deck if you wish as well. We will make sure the finished product is exactly the way you want it.
