Thinking of building or remodeling a wooden deck this summer? If so, you are not alone! According to Outdoor Living magazine,
over 30 million American homes have decks. Decks provide additional “living area” to your home without running up your heating or cooling bills! From the mountains to the beach, from the lake to the ‘burb — wooden decks are your gateway to enjoying life outdoors right in your back yard. Those summer barbecues outside with your family and friends can really be just weeks away!
Not All Decks Are Created Equal
Let the Buyer Beware!
The fact is that many contractors will be glad to build your wooden deck. Too often, however, the resulting outdoor decks, railings and stairs look great for the couple of years. Then they weather, warp, and discolor. Nails rust and begin to pop out of the wood. That can happen when you take the lowest bid which specified “wood” but not “pressure-treated wood.” Thousands of your hard earned dollars could be wasted.
Why Quality Matters
In contrast, quality contractors worth their salt will propose treated wood decking and framing lumber that will serve you for decades.
Choose Cox Decking and Lumber Cox Industries
is one of the top suppliers of high quality treated Southern Yellow Pine decking and lumber to the residential and construction industries. Cox decking is pressure treated, visually inspected and Kiln Dried After Treatment (KDAT)
. This reduces cupping, twisting and warping. Boards are run through the planer twice
for the best appearance.
Cox offers decking to fit your budget. Choose from DuraPine Classic Decking, and DuraPine Premium KDAT Decking. Cox uses only EPA registered, environmentally safe preservatives. And, unlike surface treated wood, Cox decking and timber treatments penetrate all the way to the core of the wood.
