Pressure Treated (Green Treated)

Cost Level: $-$$ (detailed pricing here)

Why Pressured Treated? If economy and longevity is what you’re looking for, then pressure-treated wood may be what you’re looking for. It’s stainable and hard enough to resist abuse. Standard treated decking is less than cedar and composite materials.

Why Cedar? If a natural look of wood is top on your list, use cedar. The heartwood of the tree (the deeper colored red part, not the white sap part) is rot resistant. Cedar doesn’t readily absorb moisture — and, since moisture is what creates twisting and splitting, cedar decking tends to lie flat and straight. You can expect a lifespan of 15-20 years for cedar decks.

Things to Consider with Cedar: To retain the color, you have to clean it and reseal it every year or two. Cedar is also soft; when used for stairs or for decks where furniture gets dragged around a lot, the edges in particular can get beat up easier than other materials.

Why Composite? If near-zero maintenance is your goal, composite decking is your answer. Most composite deck materials are made from recycled plastic and wood chips or sawdust. It’s more expensive than cedar for a wood deck, but once it’s down, it won’t rot, splinter or twist. Additionally, the color change is even. You can even stain most types after four to six months. Since the material is defect free, you can use every inch. Maintenance involves spraying it off with a hose.

Things to Consider with Composite: Some people don’t like the look as it is a man-made material and it’s cold on bare feet.
