The Ultimate Deck Material
Popular Mechanics explores the world of deck materials here.
Although redwood is by far the number one decking in California, this is changing. Trex and other “plastic” deck material manufacturers are a growing share of the market. Plastic polyurethane decking material is about the same price as redwood, and will last forever… or err… for a very long time. I prefer Trex over redwood for decking material.
