PRESSURE TREATED DECKING
Pressure-treated wood is one of the more common types of wood decking material used today and with good reason.
As one of the most affordable and versatile wood materials available, pressure treated wood is an attractive option. But it has more than just a good price point. It’s also aesthetically pleasing. You can stain it to almost any color, making it easy to customize. On top of that, it’s durable. It can be slightly more durable than cedar, making it ideal for a long-lasting deck.
At Westchester Decking, we are frequently asked what we think is the best decking material for the Westchester County area. The first type of wood that comes to mind is mahogany. A mahogany deck built by Westchester Decking is going to be well-made, durable and a lovely addition to the home it adorns.
Mahogany is known for its rich, dark red color. One of the surprising benefits of mahogany is its termite resistance. It is one of the few types of wood that termites just don’t enjoy. It’s also resistant to rot and mold, so it’s unlikely to decay or experience damage in a tough winter.
This popular decking material has a hard-won reputation for durability and beauty. Not many decking materials can compare to the natural warmth and charm of genuine cedar.
If the natural look of wood is on the top on your list, for most Westchester County homes, a cedar deck is the best option. We use the heartwood of the tree (the deep-colored red part, not the white sap part). The heartwood of the cedar tree is rot resistant, bug resistant and doesn’t readily absorb moisture. Since moisture is what creates twisting and splitting, cedar decking tends to lie flat and straight.
