Deck Material Options

Pressure-Treated Wood

Pressure-treated wood is wood that has been chemically treated to help withstand outdoor conditions. It can sometimes come with a slight color, but that will fade over time, and the wood can be finished in the same way as any other wood.

As pressure-treated wood is affordable, it is used in most decks. It is a cost-effective option that is resistant to mold, rot, moisture, and insects. It is readily available, easy to use, and cheap to repair. The wood can be finished to showcase its natural grain, or it can be painted almost any color, allowing you to match your deck to your home.

While cheap, pressure-treated wood does not last as long as other deck materials. It can warp, chip, or crack over time, and that means you need to maintain your wooden deck and take care of the small problems before they develop into larger ones.

 

Cost Of Pressure-Treated Decking: About $2.35 per sq. ft.

Composite Decking

Composite decking is created using wood fibers and recycled plastics. The finished product looks a lot like wood, and it is often impossible to tell the difference between a wooden deck and a composite deck.

Because composite decking looks like wood, you can match your deck to your yard aesthetic in the same way that you would match wood. They are a durable option, and will not suffer from the same warping or cracking as wood. The material is resistant to rot, mold, moisture, and insects.

Composite is more expensive than wood but lasts longer, so there is a trade-off. While they are durable and robust, composite decks still contain wood and can suffer from rot and mold if not taken care of properly. The parts that come into disrepair can cause contrast with the parts that do not. 

Cost Of Composite Decking: About $7.80 per sq. ft.

Vinyl Decking

Vinyl decking (or PVC decking) uses common plastics that are readily available. Advances in technology have led to designs that can mimic wood, along with multiple colors, textures, and patterns.

With vinyl, you do not need to worry about a lot of maintenance. They are one of the easiest deck materials to take care of, as long as you watch out for damage and keep the deck clean. The material is also available in an endless supply of colors. A vinyl deck will last for a very long time.

Vinyl decks cost more than other decks. They are also more expensive to repair, especially if you requested a custom color when the deck was being built. Once built, you cannot stain or paint the vinyl. Vinyl will also reflect heat, so may not be the best choice for warmer climates.

Cost Of Vinyl Decking: About $7.50 per sq. ft. for hollow core; $9.50 solid core

Types Of Decks

There are many types of deck out there, and a lot will depend on the type of house you have, the size of the yard, the location of your door, and any obstacles that may be in the way. We have the experience to guide you through the available choices.

Floating Deck

A floating deck is normally adjacent to your home, but it is not attached. It usually relies on supports to anchor it to the ground, and the deck can be built in any part of your yard if you wish.

The main advantage of a floating deck is convenience. As it is not attached to your home, it can be placed anywhere in your yard, allowing for amazing customization. It can also be expanded on if you wish. Not being attached to your home means that it will not pull away at any point and do damage. A great deck for DIYers who want to take care of the maintenance.

But, the lack of additional support can mean more maintenance, and they can be more susceptible to damage from the ground. They also do not add as much value to your home as an attached deck.

Wrap Around Deck

A wrap-around deck could be either a floating or attached deck, but most are attached. The larger square footage will be more secure if it is attached to your home. As the name may suggest, a wrap-around deck is one that wraps around more than one side of your home, generally including the rear. 

Wrap-around decks offer you a lot of room for relaxing and entertaining. The larger space opens up more options for furniture and structures. They will give more privacy, and allow you to move an entertaining area away from your kitchen area. They give you more space to be outside when the weather may not allow for it.

Being larger, they are going to cost you more money, both to build and maintain. You will also have to think about the time needed to clean and maintain the deck, and the cost of furniture to be installed.

Attached Deck

An attached deck is exactly that, a deck that is attached to your home. This can be a deck that is built at ground level or one that is elevated to be in line with a back door.

An attached deck provides a secure and stable, seamless flow from home to yard. They also offer a lot of security, and the attachment to your home means that they are less likely to shift or move. They are great decks for entertaining, and you will have a flow from kitchen to barbecue or hosting areas. Attached decks can be screened easily.

Attached decks are more expensive than floating decks, and can cost more to maintain. Depending on where you live, an attached deck may need a building permit before it is built. They also require more skill to build, so trust that to us.

Deck Maintenance

A great deck does not stop with the installation. If you maintain your deck, you are going to help it to last for as long as possible.

The best way to do this is to keep it clean. A quick sweep will remove debris, and you should consider power washing (material dependent) every 6 months – 1 year. Make small repairs as needed, and replace boards when they start to wear down.
