Treated Wood Decks

Pressure-treated wood is the overwhelming choice of material for most backyard decks. Pressure treated wood is readily available and reasonably priced.

Pressure-treated decks have a natural appearance and are resistant to termites.  The preservative treatment has little impact on the actual appearance of the wood.

For maximum protection, pressure-treated decks are coated with a water repellent after construction. Then every year or so, the same water repellent should be reapplied.
