The original and still most common decking option, wood is natural, strong, easy to install and feels good under bare feet. But it also requires an annual cleaning and can rot, splinter, and warp.
Capa Construction recommend:
Pressure Treated Wood: Lasting about 15 years, this is the least expensive and most common type of decking.
Cedar Wood: Contain natural defenses against rot and insects, and should last around 20 years, but it is soft and easily damaged by foot traffic.
