Popular Deck Materials for Every Home

Decks serve many purposes, but one of the best things about them is that they can be made from a number of materials. Each deck material, of course, will have its own attributes, and getting to know them is a great way to determine which one will be best for you.

Popular deck materials include:

  1. Wood – A classic choice, wood is naturally strong, feels good under bare feet and is easy to install. Get the pressure-treated version, and you’re looking at decking material that will last about 15 years. It is also the most affordable of all decking options, which may be why a lot of homeowners gravitate toward it.

  1. Tropical Hardwoods – Highly durable and extremely dense, tropical hardwoods like the Philippine mahogany, tigerwood, red tauari, ipe, cumaru and massaranduba resist decay and insect activity well, which means that they last around 25 years. This lasting power does come at a price, and their heft makes them a bit hard to install.

  1. Redwood and Cedar – Naturally resistant to insects and rot, redwood and cedar decks last about 20 years. Lightweight and stiff, they are easier to install than hardwoods, but they are also on the softer side and are not ideal for areas that will see a lot of foot traffic.

  1. Composites – A combination of wood fibers and plastic, composites don’t have to be painted or stained, making maintenance easy. They also won’t splinter and are guaranteed not to rot. If you want to simplify installation, get composites boards with the same texture on both sides.

I just wanna give a shout out to one of your guys who jumped out of vehicle to help me push my van out from 62 onto coker Butte this morning awesome job and thank you so much..

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

Matt Stone

Excellent experience, prompt and professional estimate, showed up on schedule (actually a day early) and did a thorough and complete job. All personnel were professional,polite and great at their jobs. Would recommend to anyone.

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
