Why Consider It?
When we say that exotic hardwoods need less maintenance, we mean it. In most cases, you will only need to re-seal it every other year, as opposed to annually. Staining is only necessary when you notice considerable fading, which happens at a slower rate than other decking materials. In most cases, the only maintenance needed is a spray with a hose, or a quick sweep to remove wet leaves in the fall.
A Natural Resistance
Exotic woods have a natural resistance to everything that causes a deck to decay. Other materials require protective finishes to avoid harmful damages like moisture. But the resins within exotic hardwoods allow the material to resist moisture, rot, and insects without those extra finishes. They also tend to have more protection against sun damage, because of its natural oils.
Homeowners often think that the term exotic hardwood decking means that it is going to cost you more - but that is not actually true! Many composite decking lines are made to mimic exotic hardwoods, and often come at a higher price tag. Exotic hardwood decking also provides the best value for those cost-conscious consumers. It is less expensive than some composites, yet more expensive than softwoods – and will outlive both with ease.
