Experience the natural beauty and convenience of a custom deck from Ben Hill Renovations. It could be a simple backyard deck or a multi-story wraparound masterpiece, but every deck designed and built by Ben Hill Renovations is given careful attention to ensure quality craftsmanship.
There are three basic material types used in modern custom decks, each with their own aesthetics, maintenance and price range.
This ubiquitous green-tinted wood is still the number one decking material sold today. In fact, approximately 75 percent of all new decks are finished with pressure-treated (PT) lumber. It is affordable, readily available, and easy to cut and install. Most PT decking is milled from southern yellow pine, and then chemically treated to resist rot, fungus and wood-boring bugs.
For many purists, the only choices for decking are redwood or red cedar. Both of these western softwoods are prized for their rich color and natural beauty, they are not full of chemicals or preservatives, and are naturally resistant to rot, decay and insects.
Composite decking and plastic lumber is extremely weather and stain-resistant and won't splinter, warp, rot or split. Composite decking has definite advantages over wood as they are extremely low-maintenance and never need to be sanded, refinished or stained.
We at Ben Hill Renovations can help guide you through the decision process of which deck fits your home the best.
