When you hire Patriot General Contractors to design and build your deck, you can be certain we are using the best materials to get the job done. Here are some common decking materials we use for our projects:
Cedar: As one of the higher-quality deck materials, this natural wood gradually weathers, which decreases the need for yearly maintenance. Because it contains natural tannins, it’s resistant to decay and insect infestation.
Pressure-treated wood: This deck type is typically pressure-treated with insecticides and anti-rot properties, which helps it last longer.
Hardwood: As the name suggests, this type of wood decking material’s strength makes it a great option. Like cedar, it also contains natural tannins that protect it from environmental factors.
Composite decking: This option generally combines multiple different materials to create a new product. It’s durable and comes in a variety of colors, making it a popular choice.
PVC decking: Although it’s not made of wood, there are many colors, styles and patterns that can mimic the style and texture of wood. Because it’s made from plastic, it’s less vulnerable than wood.
Our carpenters will be supplied with all the necessary materials and bring their own tools, so all you’ll have to do is watch them transform your outdoor space!
