The types of activities you will use your deck for will determine how big the deck will need to be. To seat 8 people to dine outdoors, your deck will need to be a minimum of 12' x 12'. By increasing this area to 20' x 24', your deck can provide more space for outdoor cooking and other activities. For tips on designing your dream deck, please visit our blog by clicking HERE
Select Knotty Western Red Cedar Decking
We offer a large selection of Western Red Cedar and Alaska Yellow Cedar in knotty or clear grades for decking purposes in a variety of thicknesses and widths including 5/4x4", 5/4x6", 2x4" and 2x6", with lengths ranging from 8 - 20'. Options for Cedar decking may also include "green" (unseasoned), air dried or kiln dried boards.
Brought to us from responsibly managed forests in tropical America, this extremely dense wood will perform admirably for many years, even in damp environments. With the highest rating against termite damage, rot and decay, Ipe is an excellent choice for exterior decking.
Select Knotty Alaska Yellow Cedar Decking
Brought to us from well managed forests in Indonesia, this beautiful, extremely durable wood produces straight boards that are resistant to decay, insects and fungal attack.
Mahogany Red Balau decking is available in a variety of dimensions, however 5/4" x 6" tends to be the size chosen most often. Complementing balusters, posts and handrails are also available. Because our Mahogany is a kiln dried product, there is almost no shrinkage. However, since expansion is likely, it is recommended that a 3/16" gap is left between board ends.

To extend the life of your deck, allow adequate spacing between your deck boards for water drain off. We also recommend using a penetrating oil-based product, such as Penofin Ultra Premium to provide additional ultraviolet protection. To save you money and time on the job site, we can arrange to have your decking pre-stained with a factory flood coat of penetrating oil to protect it. To learn more about the benefits of Penofin, please visit their website at www.penofin.com .
