Soft woods, like redwood and cedar wood decks, are relatively durable in the outdoors. One of the common materials to use to build a deck is timber, or wood. Timber decking can be made of a variety of different types of wood and looks amazing when illuminated with deck lighting ideas. To increase the durability of your deck, you should consider using pressure treated woods that turn soft woods into hardwoods. Not only is the pressure treated wood durable and long lasting, but it is able to withstand icy weather conditions.

You must first add a special finishing to the wood to protect it from inclement weather.
