Pros and Cons of Timber Decking
Here are the pros and cons of timber decking.
- Natural look
Timber decking is attractive due to its natural look. A wooden deck can also be stained in different colors and finished with a variety of styles.
A timber deck is the most affordable option as opposed to concrete and composite floors. The cost of a wooden deck varies across timbers. For instance, pressure-treated wood has the lowest material cost.
- Low labour costs
Labor cost is low when dealing with timbers because it is easy to work with them as they can be cut and shaped quickly.
- Less prone to warping
Some timber decks, such as redwood and cedar are less prone to warping than other alternatives.
- Lowest life expectancy
Some timber options, especially the cheaper ones, have the lowest life expectancy, and they are prone to cracking.
- High maintenance
Wooden decking requires annual painting and staining, which makes the decking expensive.
- Hardwood option is expensive
The most durable hardwood option can be expensive in terms of material and labour.
Or if composite decking is more your thing, then we can certainly help with that as well!
