When building a new deck, choosing wood or composite for your new space is a significant factor. Then the follow-up question is how much more is composite to treated lumber. On average, wood decking will start at around $6 per square foot, whereas composite can run between $10-15 per square foot. It’s important to note that while wood decking upfront appears to be less expensive, it requires more care and maintenance over time. You must seal and stain wood decks every few years to protect against weathering and rotting. 

On the other hand, composite decking requires little to no maintenance due to its resistance to rot, splinters, and fading. In the long run, the cost may even out. Ultimately, the choice between wood and composite decking comes is the client’s preference and budget.

  • Provide shade with a pergola, awning, or umbrella
  • Lay down outdoor rugs
