Pacific Landscapes | Decking

Deck materials are available in a variety of materials, natural wood, pressure treated wood, and composite materials are all possibilities a homeowner needs to consider for their deck. Obviously there are advantages to each, and each has its limitations. Manufactured decking, which is generally a composite of wood and a plastic, comes in a variety of colors, wood grains and profiles. This material has minimal maintenance and is the choice of many homeowners. It should be noted that the underlying deck structure is built with pressure treated wood for any of the decking surfaces mentioned. This is required for strength, rigidity, and long life.

Wood Decking: Decking made of natural wood has a beauty unmatched by other materials but has regular maintenance requirements.
