Trex composite is another common lumber used when it comes to decking. It’s made up of recycled wood, sawdust, and plastic film, so it’s very eco-friendly. When combined, these materials make a wood-plastic composite that’s much studier than regular wood. It’s also stain, fade, mold, mildew, and termite resistant, and won’t rot or crack over time. Overall, trex composite decking has an average lifespan of 10 to 20 years, which makes it a great choice.
Treated Wood Decking
Pressure-treated wood is used quite commonly all around the country. It’s often made from southern pine, but the wood used can easily vary. It’s resistant to rot, moisture, and insects. It’s also very durable, which is why it’s used so often. It’s also fairly cost-effective, so many people choose it to fit their budget.
Cedar decking has been used for quite a long time. It’s been favored for its strength and durability, being able to last for around 20 years with regular maintenance. It’s also very versatile when it comes to the color, as it can easily be sanded and stain or even painted, so it’s a big hit among homeowners. Cedar actually has a net negative greenhouse gas effect, meaning it removes the gasses from the atmosphere, as well as it’s biodegradable and renewable. It’s taken from sustainably managed forests, and is overall decently affordable, so if you’re looking for a decking choice that’s good for the environment, cedar could be a great choice.
Redwood is chosen by many due to the fact that it’s naturally insect and UV resistant when compared to other woods. It’s naturally a warm red color, which many people find very aesthetically pleasing as well, and often just needs a sealant. Redwood won’t stain naturally and it’s beauty will be guaranteed for a long time. Redwood is heat resistant as well, so you won’t have to fret about walking on it with bare feet in the middle of summer.
Ipe wood is very durable and tough. It’s actually considered the densest wood in the world, as well as it’s sustainable and eco-friendly. It’s fire, mildew, and insect resistant, and can last up to 50 years with the right maintenance. It’s also a wood that stays relatively cool, so you will have no problem walking on your deck barefoot in the summer.

Decks are a wonderful addition to any home. No matter what your hobbies or needs are, a deck can easily meet them for you. They’re a great place to have an outdoor grilling and dining area and can overlook your yard or swimming pool. They can also be used as a general entertainment and relaxation space that you can fill with various furniture, plants, and other decorations.
Decks are most often made of various types of wood (often redwood, cedar, or pressure-treated wood) that can be stained or painted to give you the style you want most.
It’s also smart to consider adding railing to your deck to prevent any safety hazards, and there are multiple types of railing styles as well (wood, metal, glass, and cable).
