Deck Material Options
There are many different materials to use when building your deck. I classify the materials as good, better or best. Has you probably know that each classification as a different cost depending on the material. There are four main components of a deck, framing, railing and steps I will explain the different options available.
Framing is the back bone of your deck.
Non Pressure Treated Wood:
No preservatives in the wood, susceptible to decay. Non pressure treated wood is used in building gardens.
Pressure Treated Wood:
Preservatives to protect from termites, insects and fungal decay.
KDAT Pressure Treated Wood:
(Kiln dried after treated)
Same protection as pressured treated, however KDAT wood tends to reduce shrinking and warping.
Stronger, straighter, safer (No Preservatives), Class 1A Fire rating.
