Decks are used all around the world for many different purposes. Some of the purposes include: shipping docks, restaurants, luxurious hotels, residential homes and many more. If you are considering building one, it is important to think about several different things first before making the decision of size, costs, and builder. This article will go into the details a little further for you.


There are many different types of decks, as well as many material options to consider. Environment plays a major roll in the decision process of choosing decking materials. Most decks are made from weather treated lumber. However, some decks consist of different forms of plastics, fiberglass, concrete, steel, and a few others. Historically, early decks in America were often made from softwoods like Atlantic Cedar, Redwoods, Redcedar. Eventually cedars began to decline because of scarcity issues. This led to a popularity in pressure treated pine. Pressure treated woods are chemically altered to withstand harsh environments that become wet and icy. Because of environmental red flags, a new type of decking called composite has been on the rise. Composite is a mixture of wood pulp and various plastics. There are several downfalls to composite decking such as molding issues, and it cannot be refurbished.
