Looking for the perfect decking materials

by Jennifer
(Illinois)

Currently we have a cedar deck and it's about 9 years old and needs replaced already. We live in IL and the deck faces the west so it gets a lot of sun. We are looking for something that will last and be low maintenance. Any suggestions?

Have you considered Kayu decking?
by: Editor-Rich Bergman

This is a perennial question. What is the best decking material to use. But of course this is a very subjective decision and there are many different decking materials available that each excel in their own area and prices vary with each.

I have written a number of new articles on many of the decking material for boards available today and when I looked at performance, price and beauty I came up with my best pick.

Kayu is my pick. It is a hardwood that has the incredible performance that approaches an Ipe wood, but much less expensive. And it is very low maintenance. You really should read this article.
