Building a deck in your yard is a great way to increase the amount of space you have for entertaining and relaxing outdoors. It adds both an aesthetic boost to your yard and value to your home.
There are a variety of options to choose from when selecting your deck boards or deck tiles. Cedar deck boards are rot and weather resistant and have a beautiful colour to them which makes them a great choice, but they are more expensive than some of the other choices. Pressure-treated lumber is injected with anti-rot and insecticide agents to help it stand up to weather and pests. It is a less expensive option and one of the most popular choices for deck building. Composite deck boards are made of wood fiber and recycled polyethylene and don’t require any finish or stain. They last the longest as they don’t rot or decay. They also closely resemble wood but must be pre-drilled to avoid cracking when installing.
If your deck is built past a certain height, you’ll need railings to keep it safe and secure. Aluminum deck railings, wood deck railings and other metal deck railings are all great options. Check your local building codes to make sure that your deck railings meet their specifications for safety.
No matter what type of deck you’re looking to build, you’ll find the materials, tools and accessories you’ll need at The Home Depot Canada.
