Choose the right Decking material

Cutting-edge deck materials and a quality installation allows some decks to last decades with ease. What material you choose to build your deck from can have big consequences on the appearance and function of your deck. Here are the 7 best deck materials you can rely on to always come quality-made and built to last.

Pressure-treated

Pressure treated wood has been taken and immersed into a preservative. Pressure is applied, forcing the preservative chemicals deep into the fibres. After the wood’s dried, you then have decking material with long-lasting protection against insect infestation and weather-related decay. The average pressure-treated deck lasts 5-8 years though a little maintenance is required.

Western Cedar

Western Cedar is a great decking material, not only beautiful but everlasting. It is more environmentally friendly than pressure-treated wood. It is also naturally resistant against insects, rotting, and decay. Western Cedar carries some moisture absorption qualities which allows it to last longer while requiring less maintenance. It does not warp or split often. An average Western Cedar deck lasts 8-12 years depending on environmental conditions.

Ipe wood

Ipe is also called Brazilian walnut. It is an exquisite exotic wood from South America that’s seeing more and more use in residential and commercial decks. A large reason why is because it’s naturally resistant against rot, abrasions, weather, and insects. It is one of the most durable wood types, twice as dense as most woods and exponentially stronger. The average ipe decking lasts 40 years or more.

TimberTech

TimberTech is a composite decking material. It is very common in decking, railing, and other applications. As a decking material, TimberTech is considered one of the best composites available. It is designed to resist moisture, is engineered to be stain-resistant and fade-resistant, and is a perfect material for around pools or docks. The average TimberTech deck lasts an estimated 20 to 25 years, and sometimes longer.

Fiberon

Fiberon is a low-maintenance composite decking material. Considered an eco-friendly wood alternative, Fiberon gives the warmth and appeal of natural hardwood without having to cut down a tree to achieve it. Like TimberTech, Fiberon is made from a mix of recycled wood and plastic particles. Fiberon is best known for offering afforable pricing on composite decking, in addition to having a wide range of colors to choose from. A Fiberon deck lasts on average 25 to 30 years, and sometimes logner.

Azek

Azek is a PVC decking material that’s ideal for premium, low-maintenance decks. For budget-centric properties, Azek is a bit more expensive as it is considered a premium PVC decking material. What you receive in performance though is worth it. Azek is a very tough material, resistant to fading and built to last. It doesn’t require any annual maintenance and Azek won’t ever scratch, rot, mold, mildew, or stain. The average Azek deck lasts 30 years and longer.

Trex

Trex is a favourite composite decking material among deck builders. It is a high-performance material that’s built to withstand the worst that Canadian weather has to offer. A unique blend of wood and plastics, with Trex decking, no maintenance is required. Trex is rot-resistant, insect-resistant, and weather-resistant. A decade from now, it can look just as good as it did the day you had it installed. The average Trex deck lasts 15 to 25 years, and sometimes longer.

TivaDek PVC Series

TivaDek is one of the most durable and strongest PVC series on the market for your residential or commercial use. The TivaDeck or TivaDok products require minimum maintenance.

Customer Reviews

My husband and I live in a typical east end semi and this past summer we interviewed with different contractors to build a new back deck, we knew we... wanted to go with composite material as we wanted something that would last a long time and that was low maintenance. After meeting with 5 different companies, we decided to hire GTA decks. When Serge came to see the site, he was professional, informative and efficient. He answered all of our questions and addressed all of our concerns with ease and confidence.He did warn us that the permit process may take a few weeks which it did but once the permit was approved, Jason from Serge's team was quick to start the project and got it done within 2 weeks. He was friendly, professional and very skilled! Serge also let us know the aluminum railings would take a while to come in but once it did, his team was ready to install them immediately.Overall, Serge was very helpful and he definitely knows what he's talking about when it comes to decks. We did have to follow up a few times regarding scheduling and timing, however Serge was on top of it and made sure everything was transparent. We would highly recommend GTA decks, we enjoyed working with them and most importantly we love our new deck!read more

Several neighbours have asked us for a referral for GTA Decks and we were happy to oblige. We strongly recommend GTA Decks for making your deck ideas become a reality.read more
With so many deck builders out there, we finally settled with GTA Decks, as Serge provided professional service throughout and the deck was completed... with care. We have a walkout basement so the deck is 9ft off the ground, Serge took care of applying for a permit etc. With the pandemic, the city took a while to process the papers, however, drawings had to be revised and re-submitted to include a staircase to the garden for obvious reasons as this was not in our initial plan. But once it was all approved, Serge and his team completed the project. We are looking forward to enjoying our deck this summer. GTA Decks is top quality and you will not be disappointed.read more
