Wood Decks are an excellent way to keep a natural look and feel about your property.  Most decks today are built out of wood because it’s affordable and easy for your builder to work with.

The most affordable and commonly used type of wood for decking would be pressure treated decking materials.  However, wood can also be quite expensive if you’re wanting to build your deck out of popular redwood, cedar or the even more expensive Ipe.  Natural decking materials however offer a certain richness, and feel that you can only get from using wood.

Pressure Treated Decking:  It’s very resistant to rot and insects and it also withstands moisture very well, not to mention it’s readily available which also makes it affordable.  Pressure treated wood doesn’t necessarily need to be painted if you like the dark brown, or dark green color variations that it comes in.  Most pressure treated decking material is milled from southern yellow pine.  South Shore Remodeling can build you a deck out of pressure treated lumber throughout the Long Island, NY area.
