A wood deck is a beautiful way to add more living space to your home. Its natural look can fit any architectural style, whether it be modern or traditional. A wood deck is also the most popular type of deck in the United States. With the many benefits of using wood for your outdoor living space, you need a fantastic wood deck contractor to match. Freedom Fence is happy to be your wood deck contractor in Bel Air, Maryland.
Creating Your Deck Vision
Before contacting a decking company, it is a good idea to have a vision for what kind of deck you would like to build. Have a list of ideas about how you would like to use the deck. For example, it could be a place to dine outdoors, have an entertainment space plus a place of solitude, or just a place to put the grill. Your purpose will help determine the ultimate design of the deck. Of course, Freedom Fence can help you review your options, and one of our designers can come up with a finalized plan. If you are ready for a new deck or a deck resurfacing, feel free to contact us!
Types of Wood Decks
If you are looking to build a new deck or reinforce one with new materials, you can check out these three great deck lumber options:
Pressure-Treated Southern Pine
Pressure-treated southern pine is a highly popular and affordable type of deck lumber. We use a high-quality grade with no knots for our pressure-treated pine decks. Wood is pressure-treated when it is put into a pressurized chamber that replaces all air within the wood with a preservative chemical. This chemical allows it to last for decades without rotting.
Cedar is another popular deck material that has many low-maintenance features built into it naturally. It already has a beautiful warm color, so it does not need staining. It also is relatively soft underfoot and cool in the summer sun. Its natural resin is insect-repelling and handles the elements with ease.
Ipe is an exotic hardwood that is durable, low-maintenance, and resistant to both insects and fire. As a hardwood, it is one of the densest species on the planet. Its beautiful rich color requires no stain.
