Obviously there are advantages to each, and each has its limitations. Decking made of natural wood has a beauty unmatched by other materials but has regular maintenance requirements. Cedar, Mahogany, and Iron Wood (IPE) as a decking surface, requires some maintenance on a regular basis also. All can be stained to the owners color preference.Manufactured decking requires much less maintenance but some, never the less. It is generally a composite of wood and a plastic. These materials come in variety of colors, wood grains and profiles. This material has minimal maintenance and is the choice of many homeowners.

Types of Decking Matials
Wood decks are the most traditional type of deck. Wood gives you unlimited design options and can be painted or stained to match your home. Because of its exposure to moisture, most wood used for decks is pressure-treated which helps prevent decay and termite damage. Wood decks require yearly maintenance.
Composite decking consists of synthetic plastic and real wood fiber. This combination makes for a very strong and durable decking material with the look of natural wood but without the maintenance. Composite decking does not splinter, and lasts a long time. Combining the desire for low maintenance with an environmental consciousness, homeowners are particularly turning to composite decking due to their high level of recycled content.
Vinyl decks are affordable, durable and long lasting. These decks come in almost any color and do not need to be stained or painted. Although they are not natural wood, they can be made to mimic it. Vinyl decks are safe because of their slip-resistant finish in the rain and resistance to heat build-up during warm weather. They are splinter-free and very low maintenance.
If you want your deck to last, it is important to choose a material and finish that you can successfully maintain. Decks are subject to all weather elements, such as sun, snow, ice, and wind. Maintaining your deck is key to keeping its appearance in top shape. After spending time and money on your new deck, maintaining it properly will make it all worthwhile.
