At TRB Carpentry, we enjoy getting to know you. We listen intently to what you’re looking for, then help guide you through the process of designing your custom dream deck. We help you choose the decking materials that match both your design and your budget. Be it a small, stylish landing or large, multi-functional wrap round, TRB Carpentry takes pride in guiding you through the construction of your dream deck.
Choosing the Right Decking Material
When building a deck, TRB Carpentry suggests using one of two decking materials: pressure treated wood or composite decking boards.
Pressure Treated Wood (PT)
Of the two, pressure treated wood is the most affordable option. It’s strong, holds up well to wear and tear, is insect-resistant and can be stained or painted easily. However, it does require regular maintenance like sealing, sanding and repainting. If you’re planning to use pressure treated wood, using a stain on this wood product will result in less maintenance than paint. Pressure treated wood can last from 15 to 20 years. If your are diligent with proper maintenance, you can extend the life of pressure treated decking up to 25 years.
Composite Decking Boards
Composite decking boards are comprised of equal parts waste wood and recycled plastic with an embossed texture printed onto the surface. Most manufacturers offer a 25 year warranty on how it’s built. The cost point for this decking material is higher than pressure treated wood, but it also lasts longer, with very low maintenance over the life of the deck. With composite decking, you can choose from various textures, and is resistant to UV rays, fading, insects, stains from spills, splitting and warping.
