$10k Deck: Wood Vs. Composite - Choosing the materials for your deck can be tough. In this article, we'll take a look at what a $10,000 deck would look like in both pressure-treated lumber and composite decking.
Consider deck repair services if your wood decking becomes damaged. Lifetime A cedar deck will last 15 to 20 years, with decks built close to the ground or in the shade coming in at the bottom of that range.
Decks can be installed on any type of land, even if your yard is not level. Shorter lifespan. Wood is more susceptible to weather and can rot over time, as well as fade and become discolored if not properly treated. Good for a view. Since a deck can be built off the ground, it serves up a better view, which can increase your home’s value.
If you want the natural route, go with a weather-resistant wood such as cedar or redwood. These types of decks have a beautiful look-and-feel and resist warping, cracking or other weather damage. Redwood is usually more expensive than cedar and in general, these types of decks come in at about three times the price of treated lumber.
