The Best Wood for Decks

When it comes to adding a deck on to your house, it’s important to choose the right kind of wood. You want a material that will be strong, water-resistant, and aesthetically pleasing. Below we discuss some great options for your new deck.

  • Cedar: This wood is rot resistant and doesn’t absorb moisture the way other wood does, so it’s a popular choice for outdoor construction. It also has a great natural look.
  • Redwood: Redwood also resists rot, and as it ages it becomes gray.
  • Pressure-treated lumber: This popular green-tinted wood is treated to resist decay, bugs, and fungus.
