Decking Materials – Beyond Basic Lumber

In a modern world which seems to allow us very little spare time, it’s important to choose the right decking materials so that you can spend as much time relaxing on your deck rather than working on it. It’s natural to want your indoor spaces to seamlessly lead to outdoor spaces when the weather is right, so many homeowners look to decks to add more living room. Traditionally, decks have been built from pressure-treated lumber and topped with common, locally available wooden finish materials — like tight-knot cedar and treated softwoods. However –  in the past 15 years or so, manufactured materials and tropical hardwoods have greatly increased the options, as well as installation methods.

Here are some decking materials for you to consider. From softwoods like Cedar, to Hardwoods such as Ipe, Tigerwood and Batu, as well as Composites like TimberTech and Trex. The price ranges provided are per square foot (as apposed to linear foot which is often how the planks are priced) and are an approximation of what you should expect to pay in the Pacific Northwest region for the decking material only. Prices will vary by region and material dimensions. These are not our advertised prices – please call or email for an accurate price quotation
