As we think about extending outdoor time due to COVID, creating deck space that is durable, safe and attractive makes sense.

Winters in the Pacific Northwest make decks a viable outdoor alternative for much of the season.

Wood decks are an ideal choice for homeowners who want to expand living space. Here’s why a natural wood deck is a great investment:

The Plusses of Wood Decking

Versatile: Wood grains, textures and shades are terrifically varied. Stain it, paint it or let the natural color to complement other structures, trim or rooftop.

Available: Lumber is easy to come by. Pressure-treated options for decking is readily available in lumberyards, home improvement stores, and big box stores.

Affordable: Wood types vary in cost (soft wood vs hard woods). But compared to composites, lumber is a very affordable deck material.

Sustainable: Wood is an organic and naturally renewable resource. Trees help mitigate climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide while growing and continuing to store carbon when harvested.

Durable: Lumber absorbs and releases moisture and is resistant to natural elements. With proper maintenance, a pressure-treated wood deck will last for decades.

Wellness: Studies show that a home built of wood provides health benefits. Non-allergenic, breathable lumber moderates the moisture of the air. The natural beauty of a wood deck calms and soothes nerves.

ROI: Wood decks provide a high ROI – 82% higher than a non-wood deck.
