Western Red Cedar
Western Red Cedar wood is naturally rot resistant. It does not easily absorb moisture, which prevents warping and splitting over time. A cedar deck can last over 20 years if properly maintained. Above all, cedar wood is often chosen simply for its natural beauty. It greatly enhances the finish of any wood project. Because cedar is resin-free, it is very accepting to any stain or finish you may choose to apply. For best results, cedar wood should be sealed every 1-3 years.
Pressure-treated wood is infused with chemical preservatives that help to protect it from rot and insects. This process makes the wood ideal for all exterior building conditions. New methods of treatment, which use less harmful chemicals, have allowed this wood to take on a more natural, earthy-brown colour. Depending on weather, exposure to sun, and the condition of the wood when installed, you may have to wait up to 4-6 months to stain treated wood.
Composite decking materials have been rising in popularity since they made their way onto the market. Composite decking is long-lasting, extremely durable, and cannot rot. These materials are mainly made up of recycled materials, and come in a wide-variety of colours and textures. Composite decking does come with a higher price tag, but offers a virtually maintenance-free alternative to traditional wood decks, and allows for a much greater freedom of stylistic expression.
