Here are some pictures of treated decks that we have built in the Madison area. Treated wood is less expensive than cedar and composite. However there can be more maintenance with needing to stain them every 2-3 years. The wood can also split, crack, and shrink over time.
Cedar is naturally rot resistant. It is slightly more expensive than treated lumber. It is a softer wood so can dent and scratch easier than treated but it typically does not shrink and crack as much as treated lumber.
Composite decking boards are made up of wood and plastic. The wood particles can be anything from sawdust, wood chips, and wood fiber pieces. The plastic components can be either virgin or recycled plastic materials. Because of the use of recycled or recovered materials in the manufacturing process, composite decks are considered a more environmentally friendly product for deck building.
Long on life span and short on fuss, these man-made boards never splinter, rot, or need staining.
You may think of your deck as just an innocuous wooden platform jutting out to your backyard, but with a little planning and a good design, that space can become a fabulous alfresco family room and entertainment center. Beckman Builders can spice up your deck with any number of special features. From a sun trellis to step lights or built in furniture and alternating colors, your Madison area outdoor living space can become the envy of your neighbors and friends alike.
