Deck Materials Overview

February 19th, 2013 Category: General

So you’ve decided to build a deck.  Congratulations!  Now what?

Choosing the right materials is a critical step towards determining design, desired results, and budget.  It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the wide range of decking products out there.

While we at Outdoor Specialties offer an overwhelming number of products ourselves, we also do our best to help our customers and contractors narrow it down to find the ideal solution for their needs, wants, and budget.  We help explain the details, features, and key differences for each criteria point, what is the best, and what will work.

Some of the decking materials we offer include decking boards, composite decking supplies, railings, trim boards, posts, caps, hardware, lattice, columns, lighting, deck furniture and accessories.  We carry brands and parts suited for contractors, architects and DIY homeowners alike.  Synthetic, pressure-treated, vinyls, natural– you’ll find it all here at one of our convenient showrooms housing real life, full-size deck displays.

And it’s not just varying shades of wood.  There is a lot of technology going into each of the product lines we carry, backed by respectable brands that take it all into account, from scratch, stain, mold, rot, weather, UV, color fade, traffic, expansion, and contraction to custom shapes, hidden fasteners, coordinating colors, low maintenance, and more.  And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Big name brands like Trex,  Azek, Fiberon, Evergrain, and Armadillo Decking offer plenty of stacked features.  Some have hidden fasteners, recyclable composition, multiple lengths, styles, and colors.  Others offer malleability or durability, organic grains, reversible boards for reduced waste, warranties, and more.

The choices are plenty, the possibilities limitless.  Come visit our showrooms today and we’ll help you choose the decking materials that are right for your project.

Explore a ton of styles and materials or ask our experts for a recommendation to suit your decking needs.  Whether you’re looking for synthetic decking material or pressure-treated lumber, we can help.
