Wood Decks

Wood or timber as it is also known can be used in several ways when one is considering a new decking solution. It is an excellent way to extend the living areas of your home, without going through the fuss of breaking down walls. They are also the perfect choice when you need to incorporate them into your garden space. Lastly, they offer a great alternative for those who want a patio made of wood and not stone. Here at Mckinney Deck Builders, we have a range of wooden choices to ensure you get the deck of your dreams.

The Best Wood

As we are sure you are all well aware, not all woods are the same. Especially when you consider the construction of your new deck. The three most common choices among our clients are redwood, cedar, and pine. Each of these offers s a range of advantages when one considers factors such as resistance to insects and rot. However, they do also carry a few drawbacks. This all needs to be taken into consideration when one decides exactly what wood suits them best. Luckily for you, our highly trained experts will have you pointing in the right direction in no time.

How Long Will It Last?

This question again has a few variables that need to be answered before we can give an accurate estimation. One needs to consider such factors as environment, frequency of use, and purpose. Once we have established that and combine it with the materials you may have chosen, we would be in a better position to provide an answer.  Generally speaking, an untreated deck could last between 1O and 3O years. A treated deck can last up to 5O years. So to find out a little more, have a look through our website and give us a call as soon as you find what you are looking for.

Composite Decking

This is by far one of the greatest happenings ever in the world of wooden decking. Unlike its cedar or redwood counter-parts, composite wooden decking will never splinter, rot or struggle with those pesky insects.As a bonus, most composite decking solutions come with UV protection built in and this means it will not fade or loose its luster as quickly as natural wood solutions. Now that you have seen just some of what this decking solution can offer, we encourage you to pick up the phone and lets get your new deck in as quickly as possible so you can start enjoying all the benefits.


As with all things in life, your wooden deck will need some TLC now and again to ensure it maintains it beauty and strength. This does not just mean throwing some sealant and thinking its done. One needs to prepare the surface and make sure its in the best condition possible to receive its new layer of protection. The rule of thumb in the industry is that your deck should be treated every 2 to 3 years. This is of course dependant on a range of factors. Give us a call today and we will be more than happy to elaborate further.
