Wooden Decks

Popular Wood Deck Options

If you want to save some money, then pressure-treated wood decking is a good choice.

Natural wood has been used to build decks for decades. Only more recently has composite materials come along, and even that has wood in it and can fail. But we’ve found that wood provides consistent performance and durability if cared for properly. Keep in mind that wood will likely have a shorter lifespan than vinly or composite decking, but often lasts long enough to still be a good value for your dollar.

Here are some of the most popular wood choices with our customers…

Ipe and Exotic Hardwood Decking

Materials used: Ipe hardwood decking and ipe hardwood railing with 3/4″ black aluminum balusters.

Nothing matches the beauty and durability of ipe and cumaru decking. If you maintain them regularly, their rich colors and textures will last for decades. Because of their density, they have an incredible resistance to insects and are virtually fireproof.

Fun fact: Ipe wood was used to build New York City’s Coney Island boardwalk. The boards lasted 25 years before city officials began to notice wear and tear.

Pressure-Treated Yellow Pine

Pressure-treated pine is the most economical decking available. It’s plentiful, easy to install, and will last 10-15 years or longer. However, keep in mind that it’s more prone to splintering and cracking, even with proper care.
