Pressure Treated Softwood
Pressure treated softwood decking is a great, budget friendly decking material. This style of decking is incredibly affordable, readily available and is easy to install. Traditionally made of pine with is treated to protect the wood from rot, fungus and wood-boring insects, this timber is the most popular choice for decking around the world. While pressure treated softwood decking is incredibly popular, it is important to remember that it does require some maintenance to ensure that the wood does not split, crack of warp. With the right care and cleaning, your deck can last as long as 30 years.
Redwood and cedar are excellent natural softwoods which can be used to create a stunning deck areas across Glasgow. Decking created with natural softwoods naturally contain oils and tannins which protect the wood from decay, rot and insects. As the wood is not treated, it has a more natural finish creating a very rich and warm appearance. While this type of wood can be more expensive, it requires less maintenance than pressure treated softwood and has a wonderful natural aesthetic.
There are a wide range of hardwoods which can be used to create beautiful deck areas. Some great hardwood decking options include: oak, mahogany, cumaru and massaranduba. As such strong woods, they are resistant to insects, fungus and rot, requiring far less maintenance than softwood alternatives, However, it is important to bare in mind that as the wood is so hard, it can take longer to install and may require pilot holes and concealed clips or fastenings.
Composite wood decking is becoming increasingly popular due to the ease of maintenance and the wide range of styles and colours available. Typically created using a combination of wood particles and plastic, composite wood decking is weather resistant, requiring little maintenance and protection. While this is a great, low maintenance option, it is important to remember that it just won’t look like wood, however, it still looks stunning in any garden.
