Cedar for Decks

Natural wood is a widely used material for outdoor construction, especially for deck. Red cedar wood was one of the most popular types of natural wood used for decks in 2012. This wood is perfect for deck boards because it is inexpensive and easy to use. Cedar for decks is a  solid, softwood that is strong, durable, and naturally resistant to fire and rot. Another common wood to use for decking is redwood. Redwood is also a softwood that is strong and durable, however, tends to cost more than cedar because redwood is more naturally resistant to rot and fire. While woods that are naturally resistant to damage from moisture are ideal, pressure treated lumber for decks are a great option for homeowners on a budget.

IPE is made from Brazilian walnut and is so durable and water resistant that it is often used to build docks and boardwalks. Ipe wood decks provide you with a long-term outdoor floor that is so sturdy it can last up to 100 years or more. The only downside to choosing IPE for your decking material is its cost. IPE is more expensive than any other wood, however the quality is worth the price. Because of its natural resistance to moisture, IPE is great for above ground pool wood decks. Other wood materials that are great to incorporate into wood pool deck plans include composite decking and pressure treated lumber because they can withstand the most moisture.

Veranda decking is the most stylish type of roofing structure used today because it creates a long deck structure with a beautiful pillared design.  If you are looking for a quick and easy fix to spruce up your deck in a short amount of time, consider installing deck tiles. Tile flooring for decks is a great way to change the look of your deck without altering it permanently. Wood decking tiles create a type of floating surface that ensures that the tiles do not destroy your already existing deck.

Despite the aesthetic appeal of natural wood, 2017 deck design trends suggest using artificial decking materials during your construction. Artificial materials are great alternatives to wood decking because they are synthetically constructed to be durable and capable of withstanding the outdoor environment. Plastic wood is the most common type of artificial material to use for decks. This type of material is referred to as composite wood for decks and consists of a combination of plastics and wood fibers that create a wood-like material that is extremely durable and resistant to moisture. In 2017 reviews comparing pressure treated wood vs composite decking materials suggest that composite is an excellent alternative to wood because it is not only inexpensive but also very sturdy and requires little maintenance.

After choosing the appropriate material to use, the next step in your deck construction project is to determine the overall design plan. Color is one of the most important aspects of any design scheme because it sets the mood and establishes the entire style. Adding paints and stains is an excellent way to enhance the look of your deck. How to paint a wood deck will depend on the type of material you use, however you should always clean, prime and then paint the surface. It is also a good idea to add a sealer as the final coat because this will provide additional protection from water and sun damage. Paint is best used to achieve full color coverage over the surface.
