When choosing what type of wood to use for your deck, there are some things to consider.

  • Longevity and durability.
  • Having your deck ‘match’ your home, which makes the deck become an extension of your home.

Depending on your local supplier, you’ll likely find that the list of recommended woods, listed according to relative cost, are treated Pine, Cedar, Composites, Redwood, Teak and IPE.
