Timeless Look, Sustainable Choice, Wood Decks

Wood will always be a staple in the design and building of decks in Ottawa.  It provides a classic and natural look that is strong and requires minimal maintenance for the cost.  There are two popular choices of woods people use for deck building in Ottawa, they are treated wood and cedar. 

Wood Decks Are Eco-Friendly

Wood is a natural product and abundant across North America. When it come to the carbon footprint of building your deck natural wood is the superior choice. Wood is renewable and for every 1 tree cut, 6 more are planted in North America. Choosing a locally sourced wood is responsible and sustainable so you can be proud of your new deck and stay green.

Treated Woods

Treated wood is the lowest cost product on the market.  It is processed with copper making it very resistant to moisture decay without the need of stains and finishing.  This wood is recognizable because of its green tint which can be covered with stain or paint.

Natural Cedar

Cedar is another popular choice for deck building wood in Ottawa.  People like that is native to the area and its abundance mean that it is quite affordable. Cedar is full of pitch making it naturally resistant to weathering and rot when compared to other popular woods.
