Building a better deck starts with using the best materials. That’s the reason Decksouth pioneered the use of Brazilian hardwoods in the Atlanta market. No other wood offers such an appealing combination of strength, style and durability. Whether it’s Brazilian walnut (IPE), Brazilian cherry (Jatoba) or Brazilian ash (Garapa), these hardwoods are extremely dense and tightly grained. They naturally resist rot, decay, splinters or fire without any chemical treatments. Because each board features subtle variations in grain and color, each deck is a one-of-a-kind creation. And the rich, bold and vivid colors of Brazilian hardwood create a “wow” factor that our customers love.
If building a low-maintenance deck is a high priority, Decksouth has the answer. We’re experts in the use of man-made decking materials (composites), with 16+ years of experience. Thanks to recent advancements in technology, such as cellular foam PVC and cap stock decking, today’s low-maintenance decks feature a 25-year fade and stain warranty as well as rich color options and realistic grain patterns that deliver a natural look.
Here in the southeastern United States, there’s no shortage of pressure-treated pine material. But building a deck with this kind of commonplace material just didn’t meet our high Decksouth standards. So we found a major wood treater on the East Coast with over 50 years of experience treating and drying wood, and asked them to develop an advanced pine decking we’d be proud to offer our customers. It features a clear grain, and a KDAT (Kiln Dried After Treatment) surface, which reduces the cupping, twisting, warping, shrinking and large cracks that occur all too frequently with ordinary pressure-treated pine.
A Decksouth watertight deck can double your outdoor living space by adding a second area underneath, kept dry and snug by a hidden water-removal system. Use the space for extra storage, create a custom outdoor kitchen or enjoy a cozy sitting area. The choice is yours, with a wide range of ceiling finishes and electrical options available to bring all the comforts of indoor living outside.
