TYPES OF DECKING
Cedar Decking: Cedar is one of the most common decking materials used. It is attractive, durable, rugged and weather resistant. Cedar decking has natural defenses against moisture, rot, and insects and naturally absorbs and dissipates solar energy so that even after a full day of sun, it will not be hot to the touch. With proper maintenance, including annual power washing and staining and sealing every two to three years, a cedar deck should last at least 20 years.
Pressure Treated Lumber: Another type of wood decking that is popular is pressure treated lumber, typically southern pine. Pressure treated lumber is affordable and easy to work with. It is chemically treated to resist rot, fungus, and insects. Like cedar decking, with annual power washing and staining and sealing every few years, a deck made from pressure treated lumber will last for years.
Composite Decking: Composite decking has gained popularity in recent years, and for good reason. Composite decking is made from a combination of recycled wood and plastics, making it very durable with a long lifespan. It does not crack or split, eliminating painful splinters. The only maintenance required is regular cleaning. It is available in a range of colors and wood grains.
Deck Railing and Accessories: Gone are the days of cookie cutter decks that all look the same. McCray Lumber and Millwork’s wide selection of deck railing, balusters, and deck lighting will let you create a deck that shows off your personality and sets your deck apart from the rest.
