Wood Decking & Framing
When most people think of decks, they think of wood decks. Wood exudes warmth and durability that make it an ideal choice. We feature several popular pressure-treated types of woods, including tropical ironwood, cedar, and red Balau mahogany. Our consultants can work with you to select the wood to enhance your outdoor setting best and provide a high degree of weather resistance.
Fir is a stable source of wood for decking and other exterior applications. It has a straight close-together grain, which makes it stable and strong. Fir will shrink and expand as it absorbs moisture but it returns to the same shape it was installed. This is a feature builders look for. Fir can be cut, shipped and installed on homes while it is still green.

Pressure Treated SYP
Pressure treated wood contains chemical preservatives to prevent rot and insect infestation for outdoor applications such as decks. It has a long and useful lifespan of up to 40 years and is much less expensive than alternatives. The treatment process involves placing a load of lumber in a cylindrical container and then forcing waterborne chemicals into the wood under pressure.
Red Balau Mahogany
Red Balau Mahogany is a popular type of decking wood used by most architects, builders and homeowners. It's a water-resistant, durable, sturdy wood and four times harder than the common redwood. It is resistant to decay, molds, insect attacks and extreme weather conditions, making it ideal for the construction of boat docks, bridges and ramps.
