What is the cheapest material to build a deck?

When decorating the houses, many people will choose carefully for the decking part. Because everyone loves spending time out on their own deck, no matter in winter or summer. As the deck is the main area to play on with family and children, perfect for relaxing. So, choosing good material and with low cost for the garden, the deck is very important.

If we have a budget to build a backyard deck outdoor floor, we should calculate the material cost carefully before purchasing the materials, the deck structure, deck designsdeck cost, installation, etc. In the market, there are so many materials to build a deck, most clients may prefer wood and composite. Then, which one is the lowest cost?

After research in the market, the wood is widely used in the world, due to its warm feeling and lower price. However, wood may be cheaper when you purchase, it could end up costing you far more. Because it requests regular maintenance, painting, repair, carefully cleaning, etc. Over time, the maintenance, repair, and/or replacement costs associated with wood will end up outweighing your initial payment for COOWIN composite products.

And another economical decking material is pressure-treated wood. Pressure-treated wood is superior to regular wood because it has been infused with chemicals that help it resist decay and rot, as well as damage from certain types of insects. Not only is this wood infused with chemicals that prevent it from decaying, but it is usually also sealed with a sealant that helps protect it from environmental damage. 

The biggest benefit of pressure-treated wood is its affordability. While it doesn’t last as long as a composite decking would, it is at a price point that makes it more accessible to many homeowners who can’t afford composite. Pressure-treated wood can cost as much as 20-30% less than traditional wood. Just the pressure-treated wood isn’t very environmentally friendly and harmless. 

So, we suggest composite decking, COOWIN composite means quality, beauty, and minimal maintenance, saving you time and money. Plus, COOWIN composite combines the look of wood with the durability of plastic and offers superior performance that you can’t get from wood. COOWIN composite resists termites, won’t rot, warp, crack, or splinter. Unlike wood which requires regular maintenance, there is no need to apply weather protectants or water seal products and stain or paint WPC products. 

By the way, a lot of homeowners and deck planners feel that hiring a professional deck builder is worth the peace of mind. And that is absolutely wonderful! Pro contractors will build a beautiful space for you to enjoy in no time at all. But if you’re fairly handy in carpentry or have experienced friends that can help; building the deck yourself will definitely reduce the cost.
