Types of Decks
During the design process, we will talk through several material and feature options. Before we meet to discuss your outdoor vision, a critical first step is choosing the type of deck you want. Once we meet in person, we can discuss the options in greater detail, but to help begin planning, here are the main deck options:
Pressure Treated Lumber Deck Wood
Pressure Treated Lumber Deck Wood is the most popular material choice when building or renovating a deck. By Kiln-drying and treating the wood, a well-built deck, which is our specialty, can last for decades. At Deck Creations, we only use premium grade lumber because it offers superior structural performance and visual consistency. This means your material will be practically free of knots, decay, damage, warping or other negative characteristics. A natural wood appearance is beautiful and a cost conscience way of building a deck you’ll love for years to come.
The greatest advantage of a composite deck is the durability of the product and how little maintenance it requires to look great year after year. Composite is a synthetic material designed to resemble the natural grain and characteristics of wood; the product is also resistant to fading, scratching, and warping. Notably, composite comes with a 25-year warranty that is backed by the manufacturer. If there is a composite option you love, I’m confident we can get it for you; however, our customers typically choose between Trex or TimberTek. Both companies offer a great selection of colors, features and design options. A composite deck will increase the cost of the deck, but many customers are happy to make the trade for a low-maintenance material that affords more time for relaxing
If the appearance of your deck is top priority, then a hardwood deck offers the beauty you desire. Whether you prefer the brown hue of Ipe or the reddish tint of Camaru, your new deck would make a bold statement. Hardwood decking is low maintenance, chemical-free, naturally resistant to decay and offers a lifespan of up to 50-75 years (depending on the species chosen).
