Pressure Treated Decks in the Columbus, Ohio Area

When it comes to choosing the type of material you want to use to build your deck, you have a variety of choices. Even if you know you want a wood-look, you need to decide between natural wood, pressure treated wood or a composite. All three can do a good job. There are differences, however, in both pros and cons, and that is where you need to decide what your personal needs require.

APCO was founded over 50 years ago and has been a leading deck builder in the Columbus area ever since. We offer premier design and installation for pressure treated decks—no matter how custom you want to make yours. Those of us at APCO are proud to be able to help you find the wood decking solution that most fits your home or business.

What Are Pressure Treated Decks?

Pressure treated wood is infused with a variety of preservatives that make it resistant to both rot and insect infestations. The wood is placed in a special air-tight container and waterborne chemicals are forced into the wood. It is then allowed to dry and is ready for use in building. This effectiveness of the pressure treatment depends a great deal on the type of wood being treated.

Pressure Treated Deck Installation

We have extensive experience installing your pressure-treated decking. At APCO, we use only the pressure-treated woods that are free from warping and other blemishes in appearances. We do not feel you should have to settle for an imperfect appearance in order to have more resistance to rot. Quality is not a trade-off in our eyes.

Pressure Treated Deck Maintenance

While pressure-treated wood is weather resistant, it still requires some type of water-resistant coating. If the wood is left uncoated and unpainted, it is prone to turning grey over time as it is subjected to the changes in weather. If your deck is made from pressure-treated wood, you need to reseal it once a year to keep it at its best. The same goes for painting. If you have painted your deck, it may become chipped and the paint will fade. It needs repainted yearly to retain its just-installed beauty.

Benefits of Pressure Treated Decking

Pressure-treated decks have several advantages over untreated wood, including:

  • Longevity – The chemicals used to treat the wood help protect it from rot and insect infestation. This makes the wood last longer and reduces the chance of health issues caused by insects and bacteria.
  • Economical – Pressure-treated wood is more expensive to install, but because it prevents so many of the things that natural wood is subject to, it lasts years longer. This means that you won’t have to replace it as often as with natural wood.
  • Environmentally friendly – Wood is used, but because the need for replacing your deck occurs much less often, it makes less of an impact in the use of trees than wood and the chemical treatment is done in a manner that makes it less hazardous than the manufacturing of composite decking.
  • Durability – Because of the treatment, the need to clean is less time-consuming. It’s resistance to mold and insects makes it easier to keep away unhealthy elements.
