Wood decking materials come in a variety of different species having different characteristics. The principal difference in them is the cost.
Treated Southern Yellow pine decking is the most cost effective variety of wood decking material but it is also much more susceptible to cracking, twisting, warping, and rotting so without yearly maintenance its lifespan is considerably less than some of the other species of wood.
The best wood decking material is a Brazilian hardwood called Ipe which is naturally resitant to fire, mold, insects, and the weather. It is a beautiful dark brown, clear material which ages to a nice light gray with exposure to the weather.×
Composite decking materials don't rot or crack, and stay like new for a long time so the advantage of composite materials over wood is that they don't require staining or sealing.
Most low maintenance materials are sold with a warranty as a safeguard against problems and they are available in a variety of colors and textures.×
