Sometimes price drives the choices concerning getting a new deck. When that is the case, a nice pressure treated deck is a good option. This deck uses “Elite decking” which is a locally produced visual grade hem-fir decking. It is rated to last 20 years, which is about the same as cedar these days. It comes pre-stained in the red color you see here, which is the same as the pressure treated framing, so you also save cost on not needing fascia. With the recent tariffs on cedar driving prices up, locally made Elite decking is a good cost conscious choice.
