For a classic wood deck, we recommend Mangaris Mahogany or select quality red cedar, extremely attractive woods that have excellent weather-resistant properties. We also suggest pressure-treated Wolmanized wood, which is treated with a preservative and fungicide that makes it ideal for in-ground as well as above-ground uses.
Mangaris brand Red Balau, a beautiful and strong hardwood from Indonesia, is a superior choice for decking material. It is a deep rich red with minor amount of fine brown lines (ribbon stripes). Finished to maintain a “furniture look” or to leave it to naturally weather into a lovely silver gray, It is resistant to shrinking, splintering and checking.
Pressure Treated Wolmanized
Treated with a copper-based preservative and an efficacious fungicide, pressure-treated Wolmanized wood is ideal for applications including decks, retaining walls, fences, picnic tables, planter boxes, walkways, sill plate and structural members. With products suitable for both above ground and in ground contact uses, it comes with a limited warranty for most residential applications.
Ridgefield Supply carries select quality western cedar in 16’ and 20’ lengths. Red cedar is ideal for decking due to its natural beauty, its weather-resistant properties, and its resistance to bug infestation. Western-grown cedar logs are preferable to inland-grown logs due to richer color, tighter knot structure, and finer grain.
Thermo-treated wood removes moisture, bacteria, and acids, resulting in a durable, stable, beautiful, and environmentally friendly product. Thermory terrace boards are available in thermo-treated ash, thermo-treated spruce, and thermo-treated pine... in several dimensions and profiles.
