You are building or renovating “the deck” and what materials do you decide to use. I have seen the industry change from the simple choice of Cedar or Pressure treated woods to a myriad of products. A quick recap of products would be:
- Western Red Cedar – the traditional natural choice
- Pressure treated woods
- Composite decking
- Hardwood Species- Ipe, Cumaru, Tigerwood,
I want to talk a little more about what do you do after you have made the choice of the deck surface. Some buyers now want the “matching material” however there are a lot of choices out there and we have two, hopefully more to come later. Our Lang railings are aluminum, six powder coated colors, with rails or glass panels, an easy to install system, pick your posts, rails and pickets and any accessories you need and it is finished. Our other system is Ridge, Western Red Cedar clear kiln-dried posts and rails, with either glass or black pickets. Both are excellent systems. You can find them under decking.
