There are more and more deck options available now days. Back in 2000 when I built my first house it was just assumed we would build our deck out of green treated lumber, so we did. It was a good deck, but a lot of maintenance. Every other year we’d have to buy 15 gallons of stain then power wash and stain it.
Now there are many more composite decking options.
