From the exotic Tiger Deck to the traditional Redwood, wood decking has been used for generations and has a beauty that cannot be duplicated. In the great PNW Cedar and Redwood are traditionally the most used species for decking. They are both naturally resistant to rot and insects making them very resilient in our climates. Fir is often used as an economical choice, however is not as resilient as Cedar or Redwood. Exotic hardwoods such as Tigerwood, Batu, and Ipe undeniably make the most stunning natural wood decks, but carry the largest investment.

Regardless of species, wood decks require maintenance, such as staining or painting, every 2-3 years. Proper maintenance only extends the life of your wood deck before needing to be replaced. A well maintained Redwood deck often lasts 15-20 years, Fir 10-15 years, while some hardwoods can last well over 70 years.
