Pick from Great Options for Decking Materials
Homeowners have a wide variety of decking material too choose from – more than ever before. If you like real wood; pressure-treated cedar or redwood are great choices.

Hardwoods are becoming more popular with choices such as Ipe that have a lifespan similar to composites. They offer a luxurious, rich appearance you can’t get with other decking; however, they are more expensive than most other types wood decking.
Design and material advancements have opened up the possibilities for the way many homeowners use their outdoor space. Many of the composites comes with warranties up to 30 years.
