Building raised decks is the main speciality of Fedeck.com's decking specialists. Over 60% of all the backyard decks we build are elevated over 6 ft above ground. small or large, raised decks can be made with composite and natural wood decking boards. For deck framing pressure treated wood is the most common option because this material is durable, insect and rot resistent. Though being natural, pine is chemically treaded to obtain the features this wood is so widely chosen for. Composite decking is a relatively new trend in building large raised decks, because of its low maintenance advantage. Many deck contractors as FeDeck.com seized the opportunity to introduce new materials to build contemporary decks of high comfort and nice appearance. However high elevated decks build of natural wood are still more preferred because of the price competitiveness and the charm of the natural wood.
