Once you’ve got your deck or porch design set in stone, it comes time to move on to the logistics of your outdoor project. One of the most important decisions is what kind of decking material you should use for your outdoor space. Here are the pros and cons of three of the most common decking materials so you can make that important decision for your project.
Pros: Lowest priced decking material, long-lasting, can be stained to a variety of colors
Cons: Needs regular maintenance to maintain look and durability, low-quality wood can warp
Pros: rot-resistant, does not absorb water, costs less than composite
Cons: costs more than pressure-treated, needs to be resealed, softness of wood can lead to scratches on deck
Pros: maintenance-free, looks just like wood, variety of design colors and options
Cons: costs the most of any decking material, not as easy as DIY project because it uses different hardware
