Cost Comparisons

Reading Time: 1 minute

Just another note on relative costs of products,  we have many products and nowhere is there a quick summary of various products’ pricing,  so here goes. This is only a guide,  as of April ’08 but gives you a comparison to work with.   One item to check is the Cedar  5/4 x 6  #2and better grade,  this is an outstanding value for a natural wood, no preservatives and the grade still gives  a very good deck.  Expect a little more trimming so adjust the wastage factor.

At the top end of the scale for performance the composites, PVC, and hardwoods are excellent as well,  I cannot recommend one over the other,  the customers’ preferences rule.
