REDWOOD FENCE? CEDAR? IPE? COMPOSITE? How to Choose?

A few words on redwood decks versus other deck materials.  Redwood is a naturally occurring tree in the San Francisco Bay Area. It has nature as its best defense against the beatings of cold, wet seasons and can withstand even the heaviest of traffic on its deck boards. Redwood decks typically have a minimum lifespan of 20+ years with little or no maintenance required.  We work with all types of lumber, not just redwood; it really depends on the homeowner’s preference. Ipe wood decking has been a popular alternative to redwood in San Francisco. It’s an extremely strong and durable wood but can be cost prohibitive for some homeowners. Its durability can be worth the extra money, but if you are working on a budget we would recommend the more popular redwood.

Redwood, Ipe and other wood decks provide natural and warm looks, but composite decking has been making great strides in its aesthetics and is often indecipherable from the natural wood decking. While we at M&L Construction may favor the natural wood for its durability, low maintenance, cost effectiveness and look, composite is an excellent alternative for those who choose it.
