How Long Will Wood Decking Last?
The lifetime of your wood deck will depend on the wood you choose to work with. For instance, pressure treated pine lasts approximately 10-15 years with proper maintenance. Splintering, warping, and greying are the most common concerns with pressure-treated woods, and they may also factor into the lifetime of other woods. Ask your Archadeck representative which wood materials will last the longest in your environment.

Wood Decking vs. Composite Materials
The expanding options in composite decking have steered many homeowners away from traditional wood decks, but there are still plenty of properties that feature pressure-treated pine, African hardwoods, Tiger Wood, and more. Composite materials are strategically designed to last longer and uphold more abuse than wood decking, but they do not have the same visual appeal that natural wood provides and tends to be more expensive. Our deck experts can help you weigh out your options to find the ideal balance for your budget and design goals.
