DECKING MATERIAL OPTIONS
Choosing a material for your decking can be a tough decision, however, our team will guide you in choosing the best. Each material has its advantages and disadvantages, but all functions as they should.
Here are the materials that most homeowners use:
Hardwoods are very strong and durable. An example of hardwood is mahogany. Most homeowners prefer hardwood because it’s long-lasting and won’t get damaged easily because it can resist insect attacks and won’t rot. On top of that, it’s low maintenance.
The downside is it’s expensive and installing it can be challenging.
Softwood is affordable and environmentally friendly. Just like hardwood, it also doesn’t require intensive maintenance. However, softwoods are not as durable because they are weaker than other materials due to their low densities. Softwood is ideal for lightweight and light food traffic.
Metal deckings are strong and durable. The most common metal used for deckings is aluminium. It’s an ideal material because it’s lightweight and it won’t be damaged even when exposed to water all the time. However, aluminium is one of the most expensive decking materials.
If you’re looking for an alternative to natural wood, composite is the perfect material for you. It’s also a popular option among homeowners because it can resist harsh weather conditions. Unlike natural wood, it won’t split or crack. You will also be delighted by the variety of styles and colours available.
