What are the best choices for decking materials in Portland?
One of the best and most affordable decking materials is the laminate composite decking board (Trex). This material is built to be placed on no more then a 16″ sub frame system. A to long of span will warp the boards over a short time.
Cedar decking is also a great decking system. It is a high maintenance decking system. Again best on a 16″ sub frame and pre-staining of the decking boards will be much easier then staining after the deck boards have been installed. Once the deck is built you can plan on re applying a coat of stain every 2 years at least.
PVC decking is a system that is a low maintenance, again best installed on a 16″ sub frame. The PVC decking boards are very expensive and will scratch.
Water proof decking, there are a few different ways to build a weather proof deck.
- DeckRite product is a membrane and comes in many different colors. Most are in a 5′ roll and it can be installed over the top of a older deck with just a little prep work. It last 15 to 20 years. This type of membrane deck cover is low maintenance and looks good.
- Spantex products are a waterproofing system where a couple coatings of the product are applied over a smooth surface. You can install sanded plywood and fill all the holes and seams. Then apply the product. This is a low maintenance high wear decking surface. You will need a professional decking contractor to install this system. Life span is roughly 15 to 20 years.
