Types of Decking

Regardless of how you Gussie your deck or design with pergolas and planters, it still narrows down to a flat and big walking surface. This makes your options of decking your number factor to choose the right type.

These days, there are many decking options. Many decking boards usually come manufactured or milled sizes, which are thicker than one inch. They are also four or six inches wide, with rounded endings to resist splintering.

The most common decking type is a hardwood board. Basically, hardwood board is expensive compared to pressure-treated timber, and you can source it from tropical trees. Hardwood board is also resistant to rot, warping and splitting, though it might still need regular maintenance.

Softwood decking is another type, which comes from fast-growing trees, such as pine. This makes softwood decking the cheapest option.

However, it’s weaker and doesn’t last for a long time – meaning it needs more maintenance. Other than softwood decking and hardwood board, other types of decking include:

  • Redwood
  • Vinyl decking
  • Ipe
  • Cedar decking

Composite Decking Boards

Composite decking is the most common and modern way to come up with a garden decking space in Dundee. It involves the combination of modern plastics and wood fibers held together with some bonding agents.

The outcome is a strong decking board. Plus, the benefits over timber decking make composite decking more superior.

The plastic content also means that the decking is resistant to insects, rot, and dampness. You will not need to paint, seal, or stain, and even with direct sunlight, it cannot crack.

In addition, composite decking has minimal water absorption – meaning it is very slip-resistant, and you can use it around wet areas and pools.

While they are slightly more expensive, composite decking boards still look good even after many years of use. In other words, composite decking requires less maintenance when compared to traditional wood decking.
