Building an Eco-friendly Deck

The “green approach” has been massively promoted in different industries as the world begins to realize the need to have a positive impact on the environment with their activities. Deck-building activities have not been in this era of global environmental awareness. 

Some of the main aspects involved when working on an eco-friendly approach with your Deck Builders include:

Materials

The first aspect to consider is the particular materials chosen for your project. Working with reclaimed is highly recommended as it ensures that no more trees are cut down for new lumber needs. Recycled wood still features high levels of quality and provides the same aesthetic appeal as fresh lumber without destroying the environment in the process. 

Sustainability

Another issue to consider with your approach is the potential longevity involved with your project. Choosing options such as untreated wood, for example, will mean you’ll likely need to replace your decking every 5 to 10 years – dwindling sources around your environment. Composite decking, on the other hand, can last for up to 30 years. 

Building Approach

The construction process should also take an eco-friendly approach. Avoid excessive digging when setting up the posts, and don’t pour concrete beneath the deck’s surface as a means of providing a solid foundation.
