Deck Maintenance

The best natural decking is comprised of cedar, hardwood or pressure-treated spruce. If you deck is made of any of these woods they will need to be sealed annually.

While cedar and pressure treated wood decks can be left to weather to a lovely green or grey, natural decks might not always age gracefully or uniformly. A deck that is regularly treated will look better and outlast an unfinished one.

Alternatives to natural wood decking are available on the market today. Composite decking, made of a combination of wood and plastic, is impermeable to insect damage, will not rot or splinter; it's also resistant to fading and moisture. For those homeowners who want to lighten their maintenance load but don't mind the higher cost, composite decking might be the answer. Read more...
