When you purchase a deck, the last thing you want to think about is maintenance. Soft woods such as pine and cedar can crack and deteriorate. Composite materials warp, peel, crack, and sometimes even melt! So what is an alternative in a market that’s over saturated with these types of decking materials? Tigerwood is the most beneficial material for your new decking project. This exotic hardwood has a lifespan of well over 30 years.
You may be wondering how a hardwood such as Tigerwood is such a long lasting material. It has a tight grain which adds to its water resistant qualities. This in turn, keeps moisture from entering the board and eventually harboring mold and fungus. This density also keeps termites from making a tasty meal out of your deck.
Composite and soft wood decking usually lasts around 10 years before they need to be replaced. They harbor mold, fungus, and even termites. They are treated with chemicals that can be detrimental to your health, and honestly, they don’t look as pretty either. So when it comes to your new deck, choose a material that’s safe, low maintenance, and has a long life. You may never need to replace your deck again!
