With the dimensions already laid down in the plan, time for you and your contractor to shop for the materials. Wood remains a popular decking choice. High density woods, in particular, are the choice of many homeowners and contractors because of their natural beauty, durability, and low maintenance, and the Batu™ Hardwood line by Kayu International fits the bill for quality decking. You can get this top-quality product from reputable building material suppliers in Long Island like Contractor Express.
Imported and processed from the forests of Indonesia, Batu™ deck planks come in shades of dark red or brown. The real value comes in the form of exceptional resistance to decay and insect infestation, and high tolerance of extreme temperatures, making them suitable for tropical and upper latitude environments. The latter is especially helpful in Long Island homes, considering the cold winters and the harsh winds from Long Island Sound and the Atlantic Ocean.
