Building (or rebuilding) a deck onto your home or property is an excellent way to keep a natural look and feel about your property while maximizing your enjoyment at the same time. Most decks today are built out of wood because it’s affordable and easy for your builder to work with, composite materials however, are also becoming increasingly popular because of their affordable cost and low maintenance requirements.

The most affordable and commonly used type of wood for decking would be pressure treated decking materials. However, wood can also be quite expensive if you’re wanting to build your deck out of popular redwood, cedar or the even more expensive Ipe. Natural decking materials however offer a certain richness, and feel that you can only get from using wood.
What’s The Difference In Wood For Decking?
Pressure Treated Decking: It’s very resistant to rot and insects and it also withstands moisture very well, not to mention it’s readily available which also makes it affordable. Pressure treated wood doesn’t necessarily need to be painted if you like the dark brown, or dark green color variations that it comes in. Most pressure treated decking material is milled from southern yellow pine. The Good Stuff team can build you a beautiful deck out of pressure treated lumber.
Redwood & Cedar Decking: If budget isn’t an issue and you want one of the more elegant looking materials for your deck then redwood or red cedar are great choices. Both of these western softwoods are highly sought after for their deep rich colors and natural beauty. Both of these species actually contain tannins and oils that help them naturally resist rot, decay and wood boring insects without having to be treated with chemicals. The crew at Good Stuff Enterprises are the Kentucky Cedar Decking experts!
Composite Decking: Composite decking can be made from a variety of materials such as plastic, metal and PVC. There are a variety of materials, including different styles and designs so it’s a good idea to have a professional visit your property to get a good scope on what will be required for your project. Composite decking usually comes pre-colored so no painting or staining is necessary for the life of the product. Maintenance can be as simple as power washing the surface on an annual basis.
If there was just one single exterior home improvement any Kentucky homeowner could make to their home, that would enhance both the look and property value it would be the addition of a new custom wood deck. Not just any old deck will do however, and there are several things you need to consider before you get to work building your deck.
