Types of Wood Decking
There are many different types of wood that can be used for outdoor decks in Virginia. Not all offer the same benefits or maintenance requirements so it’s best to do you research before you begin the building process. It’s important to take into consideration where you live and how much you are looking to spend. The different types of natural wood decking available for Virginia are:
- Douglas fir
- Southern yellow pine
- Exotic woods including Ipe and Cambara
Benefits of Hardwood Decking
Adding a deck to your home is a good investment. Not only do you add value to your home but you are also adding an enjoyable living space. You can now invite friends and family over for barbecues and cocktails without having to worry about finding a place for everyone to sit. Your deck can be used for entertaining or relaxing. Besides being really fun and inviting, wood decks are also:
- Beautiful and eye-catching with natural colors and patterns
- Excellent performers in Virginia’s extreme climates—hot or cold
- Cost-effective—hardwood decking is less expensive than composite decking
You can also choose pressure treated wood—wood that has chemicals added by using pressure—it is resistant to mold and parasites. Pressure treated wood decks last longer and repel water but still hold the look of natural wood. For a complete explanation of a particular material, ask one of our deck specialists by calling 703-255-0824 or fill out the contact form to the right.
