Gorgeous with beautiful grains, textures and colours
Cedar is an all-weather, naturally decaying and insect-resistant wood with beautiful grains, textures and colours. Cedar decks generally fall somewhere between pressure treated and composite decking in terms of price, and requires varying levels of upkeep and maintenance depending on the look you’re after.
Maintenance Free and Durable
Composite decks are guaranteed not to splinter, warp, crack or rot, and are easier to maintain than pressure treated or cedar. Its primary drawback is cost – composite decking is more expensive than natural decking products – and for some homeowners there’s simply no replacing the look and feel of a natural wood deck.

Pressure Treated Decks
Natural, Durable and Low-cost
The majority of decks in Chicago are constructed from pressure treated wood, and with good reason. The amount of upkeep and maintenance a pressure treated deck requires varies widely. While a well maintained pressure treated deck can last up to forty years, and still look great, ill-maintained decks can split and crack their way to looking old and beaten up in less than ten years.
