Designing your Dream Deck

Brought to you by Parr Lumber - BUILDING MATERIALS INSIDER -

PARR LUMBER - Go where the builders go!When planning a deck, there are a few basic questions a homeowner needs to consider.

What is your budget? Will you be building the deck or hiring a contractor for installation? What are the material options and the associated maintenance requirements? Do you need a permit? Do you want to add railing, lighting, planter boxes, or other accessories?

Parr Lumber is an excellent resource to answer these questions.

Composite decking brands such as Trex and TimberTech are the most modern and popular options for decks. Composite decking is made from wood and recycled plastic fibers. It comes in a variety of colors and textures to mimic real wood. Most composite products come with a warranty up to 25 years and require very little maintenance.

A wood deck made from cedar is an affordable option and holds up well in the Pacific Northwest climate. Cedar is a beautiful wood that is easy to install and resistant to rot, decay, and insects.

For a truly unique appearance and exceptional durability, consider one of the exotic hardwoods such as Mahogany, Ipe, Tigerwood, or Cumaru. They are remarkable decking products and do exceptionally well in coastal regions.

Parr Lumber has deck displays showing many of the most popular products and options. Parr also offers delivery of the materials directly to your home or jobsite. The experts at Parr will help you design the deck, select the perfect materials, and introduce you to a professional contractor if you need installation.
