If you’re interested in an affordable deck with a timeless appearance, natural wood decking is the way to go. Excel offers:
The most widely used natural wood decking material for many decades, roughly 75% of all new deck construction is done with pressure-treated (PT) lumber, and there are plenty of good reasons why. Chiefly, pressure-treated lumber is the most affordable, and widely manufactured wooden decking material. The majority of pressure-treated wood decking is cut from southern yellow pine. The wood Excel uses is specially treated to repel wood-damaging insects, decay, and fungus. It’s worth noting that PT wood decking does require some routine maintenance too, including an annual power washing and an application of stain or clear wood preservative every two or three years to prevent cracking.
Redwood and Western Red Cedar
Valued for their natural beauty and lustrous red coloring, western red cedar and redwood possess special oils that make them naturally resistant to decking dangers like rot, decay, and ravenous insects, so they don’t need much chemical treatment. These wood decking materials weigh much less, and have greater resistance to warping and cracking than pressure-treated wood decking, but are also more expensive.
The latest kind of natural wood decking originates from regions like South America, Malaysia, Africa, the Philippines, and other tropical locales. Tropical hardwoods are varied and diverse but share some common characteristics like high density, durability, and a natural resistance to problems like wood-rot and insect damage. Tropical hardwood is so tough that it’s impossible to hammer a nail or screw directly into it. While tropical hardwood is generally the most expensive option for natural wood decking, it’s also almost entirely maintenance-free, requiring, at most, irregular scrubbing and maybe a coating of wood preservative.
