Bring Your Backyard to Life with a Pressure-treated Wood Deck
When picturing a deck, most of us imagine the natural look, feel and smell of wood. While it’s a traditional building material for decks, we recommend using pressure-treated wood, like Southern Yellow Pine, over traditional lumber. The pressure-treated wooden decks that we build at Contract Exteriors are built to last longer than those made from traditional wood.
Benefits of Treated Wood Decks
- Cost: Many of our customers choose pressure-treated wood because of its affordability. The initial cost of a wood deck is significantly less than that of vinyl or composite.
- Durability: When properly constructed and maintained, treated wood can last for decades. Pressure-treated wood can also withstand high winds better than other materials.
- Insect-repellant: The chemicals used in treating this type of wood drive away bugs and insects, keeping them away from your home and lowering the possibility of insect damage.
- Eco-friendly: Unlike petroleum-based materials, pressure-treated wood, if sustainably harvested, is renewable.
