Composite decking is the fastest growing wood deck alternative on the market. It boasts low maintenance and a much longer lifespan than wood decking. Advancements in the way composite decking products are made have allowed composite decking manufacturers to simulate the look of many exotic hardwoods to give the homeowner options they typically would not have when designing and building a deck.
Composite decking is a man-made building product that includes an approximate equal mix of recycled wood fibers and recycled plastic. Because composite decking products are so durable and impervious to rot, they have a much longer lifespan than wood decks. They do not require the staining, sanding, sealing, and board replacement that come along with wood decks. Even though they require more initial investment, a composite deck more than makes up for that initial cost over the lifespan of the deck.
Timber decking is a type of construction material used to build outdoor decks and patios. This material can be manufactured using a wide variety of hard and soft wood species, depending on the desired appearance and properties of the finished structure. Timber decking gives outdoor structures a natural rustic look that cannot be achieved with metal or composite materials. Homeowners who build a timber deck will increase their available living space and create an outdoor spot for meals and gatherings.
Hardwood species such as Merbau, Ironwood, and Chengal are among the most popular materials used for timber decking. These woods offer natural resistance to mold and moisture that enhance the deck's strength and durability. While these species tend to be fairly expensive, they last longer and require less maintenance than more affordable materials such as oak. These exotic hardwoods also offer rich natural coloring without the need for stains or sealants.
Some homeowners choose softwood timber decking made from pine or fir for its low cost and natural beauty. These softwoods are easy to work with, and often feature knots and other flaws that some buyers find appealing. Softwood timber decks don't offer the same level of strength and durability as hardwoods, and may not last as long.
