If you are getting ready to build a new deck, you will need to know about the different types of decking before you get started. This article will provide you information on the different types of decking you can choose for you home and their advantages.
A deck can enhance the exterior look of your home by providing you additional space to relax. Before you build a deck, you need to decide on the location, size and purpose of your deck.
Once you finalize these decisions will you be able to determine the material you should use to build your deck.
You can choose from four types of materials to build a deck. The types of material are pressure treated, exotic hardwood, composite and vinyl.
Each material has its unique advantage. Here are ways you can use each type of material to build a long lasting and beautiful deck for your home:
Pressure Treated Deck Material
Decks made of pressure treated material are long lasting and economically sound. Yes, these types of decks require regular maintenance to keep its appearance looking good.
Exotic Hardwood Deck Material
If you prefer a deck with the look of natural wood, this material is made for you. The exotic hardwood material is a rich dark brown that perfectly blends with landscaped patios.
This type of deck is low in maintenance, durable, and has a great appearance. It is also a deck that requires little care to preserve its color.
Composite Deck Material
