Tips On Choosing New Decking For A Deck Replacement Project In Auburn

Tips on choosing new decking for deck replacement

The winter weather in Auburn, WA, can be quite hard on our homes, particularly a wooden deck that has started to age and lost its waterproof seal. If your deck has seen better days and it's time for a deck replacement, you can either go with wood decking again or choose something more durable.

To help you make a good decision that's right for you, our Auburn deck builders at Titan Remodel Services want to help you with the following tips on choosing new decking materials for your deck replacement.

Consider Durability vs. Costs When Making Decisions About New Deck Replacement Materials

When you replace the decking, you'll have the option to upgrade to a more durable hardwood or composite decking material. Here are a few questions to ask yourself before making a decision.

A deck replacement project, as with any type of improvement for your Auburn home, will involve choosing new materials that fall within your budget but it will also involve whether the material can meet any goals you may have. The maintenance involved and how long it will be before you need to get another deck replacement done are equally important.

Hardwood Decking vs. Pressure Treated Lumber vs. Composite Decking For Your Deck Replacement

Pressure treated lumber is often used for both the support structure and the top decking material on a standard wooden deck. In most cases, it's always used for the support structure for wooden decks.

Most people go with pressure-treated pine decking because it's the most economical choice. However, many homeowners in Auburn prefer to install a hardwood decking or composite decking material because it stands up better in our climate, they want to limit the maintenance, and they don't want to go through another deck replacement for some time.
