Wood Decks

You can’t go wrong with wood as your building material

Wood Deck Builders in San Antonio TX

If you’re thinking about adding a deck to your property, you can’t go wrong with wood as your building material. High-quality, natural wood can stand the test of time, and it’s always the best choice when it comes to building a long lasting deck. Like any decking material, wood comes in a variety of different qualities and costs and the type of wood you select will depend greatly on your budget.

Cost of Wood Decks in San Antonio

The most economical option when considering wood decks is by far treated lumbers. Southern pine is a very popular option due to its low costs and high level of availability. However, pine is more prone to warping and cupping and requires more maintenance than some other, higher-quality woods. So, your commitment to providing regular maintenance should be prime consideration when choosing the material for your wood deck.

Cedar decks represent a mid-range priced alternative. Cedar is a beautiful wood that gives off a lovely fragrance, making it a very popular alternative. However, Cedar is not without its drawbacks as it is more resistant to rot but breaks down when exposed to moist conditions.

If you’re looking for a high-grade wood deck we recommend Mahogany or Ipe. These woods produce decks that are very hard, extremely durable and esthetically pleasing.
