Types of Wood Decks
You have two main categories of deck materials to choose from: natural wood or manmade products – but there are lots of options within each of these categories. The most popular wood products are treated lumber and cedar. Other species of wood such as redwood and hardwoods like Ipe, jojoba and tigerwood are also used on decks
The majority of decks built today are made of Pressure Treated wood. The main reason people choose wood is for the initial cost savings.
Knowing that where you live and how much you can spend may be deciding factors—here are the likeliest natural wood choices for deck building:
Redwood is easy to work with, naturally decay- and insect-resistant and rugged enough to avoid warping and splitting.
Cedar resists moisture, rot and insect infestation. If untreated, it weathers to a silvery gray but is easily stained or sealed.
Douglas fir, like spruce, is not only a source of beauty but also very strong. It responds well to hand- and power-tool use and, properly treated, is decay-, mold- and termite-resistant.
Cypress is strong, with natural resistance to decay. It’s also easy to work with—either with hand or power tools.
Hemlock boasts a uniform wood grain as well as a natural resistance to decay. It, too, is easily dealt with.
Southern yellow pine, when pressure-treated, is durable, strong and environmentally friendly. NOTE: In 2003, when high toxicity was discovered in pressure-treated wood, new regulations were established. Manufacturers now use nontoxic chemicals to make that product safe as well as rot- and insect-repellent. Decking experts at say that “pressure-treated lumber provides greater strength and is less expensive than other deck materials. Use it to frame the structure, and then choose another material for decking and railings.”
Exotic wood choices. These species are more durable, more difficult to work with and more expensive,” says The Home Depot. Choices include cambara, meranti and ipe also called Brazilian walnut, which is an extremely dense material and also a renewable product—one of the best choices for outdoor decking
