Options For Your Residential Deck

1. Pressure-treated Wood: Among the various types of decking, pressure treated lumber is one of the common types. Pressure-treated lumber is treated with various chemicals to promote a longer life, like insecticides and anti-rot properties. It’s generally easy to find, and easy to work with making it one of the more affordable deck options. Also, if you don’t care for the color of your natural wood, it allows you to stain it to give you color options. Pressure-treated wood does require regular maintenance, but with good care such as pressure washing, re-staining, and sanding you can extend it’s life.

2. Composite Decking: Composite decking is a go to material that gives you color options combined with long lasting weather resistance. Composite decking is basically different materials combined together to create a long lasting product. Low density polyethylene, high density polyethylene, natural wood, rice hulls, and other combinations of materials are generally what goes into composite decking. Composite comes in a wide variety of color options. Some brands also use lots of recycled materials in their products making it a more environmentally friendly option. Composite decking material is great on many levels including, low maintenance, stands up well to abuse, doesn’t splinter or warp, and doesn’t require staining or paining.

3. Cedar Decking: In general, people see cedar decking as a higher quality product when compared to pressure-treated lumber. Cedar has natural tannins, which help it to resist bugs, and rot. If you’re going with cedar, make sure you go with heartwood cedar. Heartwood cedar is cut from the center of the tree and is more dense than others cedars. Like pressure-treated wood, cedar will require some regular maintenance, but if you take care of it you’ll get a longer lasting deck than with pressure treated lumber.

4. Hardwoods: Ipe, teak, and even mahogany are some of the hardwoods that can be used for decking. Some are at the high end of the decking price range, but can make long lasting beautiful decks. Hardwoods can provide a high level of style and elegance for your backyard.

They often incorporate minimalist elements like metal railings, glass panels, and low-maintenance materials like composite decking. Neutral color palettes with pops of color work well in contemporary deck designs.

The nice thing is you have plenty of deck options to help facilitate the look and feel you’re after.

Traditional residential decks bring in a classic and timeless look. They often feature natural wood materials like cedar or redwood with traditional railing designs like vertical balusters or lattice. Traditional decks may also use more ornate details, such as decorative post caps and moldings.

Rustic

Rustic deck styles embrace a more natural and rugged appearance. They often use materials like weathered wood, reclaimed lumber, or even log beams. Rustic decks may include elements like rough-cut railings, stone or brick accents, and natural landscape features to create a cozy and rustic ambiance. This can give you some interesting and appealing looks.

Costal

Coastal deck styles are inspired by beachside and seaside aesthetics. They often feature light-colored decking like white or light gray composite, that mimic the look of weathered wood. Coastal decks sometimes include nautical-themed accessories like rope railings, striped awnings, and marine-inspired decor. It can be a fun way to have a space away from home in your backyard.

Freestanding Deck

Have you considered a freestanding deck?

Not all decks are attached to a home or structure. You can have a freestanding deck that can be used as a hidden retreat, a platform for viewing, or to relax from a tough day at work. One of the most important factors in building a floating deck is to make sure the support legs are firm and don’t allow wobble. Since a freestanding deck is a self-supporting structure, you want to make sure it is a firm support and will last.
