The wood decking material is unmatched by other materials in terms of aesthetics and functionality. Decking made of wood can transform your garden into paradise since it blends seamlessly with the natural landscape. There is a variety of wood that can be used in decks.
The most commonly used woods are pressure-treated Pine, Cedar, Redwood, Cypress, Larch, and Mahogany. Wooden decking constructed from pressure-treated wood which is the least expensive option on the market is known to last at least 15 years. Cedar as well as Redwood decking, however, can last up to 20 years, and they offer a natural defense against insects and rot. However, they can turn gray after long exposure to the sun.
If you're looking to invest in timber that will last for a longer time, then you must choose the many exotic kinds of wood on the market. While they're more costly, however, they are extremely robust, durable, and come with an attractive grain. There is an array of wood that includes Ipe, Cambara, Cumaru, Golden Ironwood, Tigerwood, Tamarack, Red Balau, and Garapa.
If you would like your wood deck to appear attractive over the long haul then you must do your best to maintain it. Otherwise, the continual exposure to elements of weather will cause it to break and then rot. Even if you pick the most expensive wood, other contaminants like decaying leaves, tree sap, and bird droppings could make your deck appear ugly. In this way, you'll have to wash and seal your wooden deck frequently.
