The Benefits of a Pressure-Treated Deck

Welcome to Harmony Decking’s first blog post! We thought it was about time we start sharing our tips, facts, and tools of the trade with the public! For our first post, we’d like to give you some information about the benefits of pressure-treated wood.

At Harmony Decking, we specialize in pressure-treated wood for durable, weather-resistant decks. If you’re thinking about installing or renovating a deck, this could be a great option for you.

What is pressure treating?

Pressure treating is the process of adding chemicals to the wood to protect it from insects, microorganisms, decay, and the elements. It’s a commonly used type of building material in the industry. Why is a great option for your deck?

It’s cost-effective. The price of the initial installation is low, and it is also low-maintenance, making pressure treated decking a popular choice for those looking for a bargain. If you’re going to be involved in a big building project, this can be a substantial source of your savings.

It’s tough. Pressure-treated wood is one of the strongest types of decking material, especially once it has been sealed. It is able to hold up to a lot of wear and tear, and it’s less likely to get dented or scratched. Pressure treating can protect the wood for over 20 years, making it an excellent choice for outdoor projects.

It repels insects. Pressure-treated wood is actually toxic if an insect spends too much time on it, or bites into it. This will keep your deck looking fresh, and it will make your summer nights a little less buggy.

It looks good. Pressure-treated wood gives off a natural appearance, which most people prefer. However, it is possible to add some color as well, since pressure-treated wood can be painted or stained very easily. If there’s a scratch or a blemish, it can be sanded off quickly and easily.

As you can see, pressure-treated wood can yield wonderful benefits! If longevity and economy are what you’re looking for, a pressure-treated deck built by our Main Line deck company is a wise choice.
