Patios, Paths and Garden Decks
Decking is an outdoor living project made of wood planks and timber for support. While it is almost made of wood, it is expected that wood materials would rot in any way, anytime.
Most decks are built within a landscaped garden, around the pool, or on a patio area. Since it is built outdoors, humidity and moisture is high from weather. Moulds, algae, fungi, and any wood-boring insects would thrive and accumulate and slowly destroy the wood material that composed the deck. Hence, the type of wood you use dictates the stability of the deck and should conform to the kind of weather in your area.
For cold climates and high-humidity areas, your decking may not last, thereby it is best to give much importance on maintenance and repair. Also, the sun is another major enemy of the wood. The sun really breaks down the finish of the wood, from handrail to the stairs, anything that is exposed to the sun may soon wear off than those parts hidden under a shed.
A deck could be a wise choice if you want something added as an outdoor space created for leisure, spending time with people or just being alone. It could be directly connected to your indoor, opening a smooth transition going outside. However, all could only be spoiled if you deck cracks the moment you step on.
