Hire Experts for Wood Decks
If you’re looking to cut corners and go with a small contractor, you are making a mistake. They will not have the expertise and will not be familiar with the comprehensive range of wood available. A custom wood deck expert will know all the variety and guide you towards the right material for your needs. Experts know the durability, maintenance, and budget of all types of wood, hence they are the best option.
Types of Wood Decks
Typically there are two types of wood which are hardwood and softwood.
Hardwoods: The hardwood decks are made from trees that have a slow growth rate and they cost more than softwood. However, they are worth the cost as they last longer than wood from softwood trees. Some popular hardwood choices are mahogany, tigerwood, ipe, batu, and cumaru.
Amongst these many choices, the wood commonly chosen for decks is Ipe which is a Brazilian redwood. Even with high prices, people opt for it as it lasts for over 50 years.
Softwoods: As softwood is made of fast-growing trees, they require a lot of upkeep and fades easily, and requires yearly re-staining as compared to hardwood’s 2-4 years of re-staining period. The coon softwood choices are Cedar, Pine, and Redwood. However, pine is a popular choice due to its low prices.
Cedar on the other hand is also a popular choice because of its resistance and durability. It resists insect infestation and even rots. Moreover, the best feature is that it changes the content of moisture it holds per the temperature changes. Hence, if you live in areas where the temperatures run low or it snows, cedar will not crack.
Redwood is a western softwood that is used for outdoor decks, quite frequently. It is quite similar to cedar in regards to its durability and woody texture. It’s also resistant to insects, moisture and rots. It contains tannins and natural oils which adds to the overall look. Since it’s softwood, you should get it stained every couple of years and make sure you do the required upkeep, that is annual washing.
