Made of southern yellow pine and chemically treated to resist rot, mold and invasive insects such as carpenter ants and termites, this is the most common material used for decks in Wake Forest and Raleigh, NC. Treated lumber is readily available and is relatively cheaper than other materials, but tends to crack and warp over time. Although the material is treated, annual pressure washing, staining and sealing applications are necessary to maintain the surface.
These wood species have a beautiful color and are naturally resistant to rot and insects. However, this material is more expensive than pressure treated lumber and requires similar maintenance treatments throughout the year.
Elegant woods such as tigerwood, ipe and mahogany provide the hardest and most beautiful surfaces. These woods are durable and look great with rich stains, but are considerably more expensive than other wood materials.
