Pressure treated wood, usually pine, is engineered to resist wood rot and insects. The biggest advantage of treated lumber used as a decking material is it’s budget-friendly cost. It is also easy to build with and stands up beautifully to normal wear and tear. A regularly cleaned and sealed deck can last around 20 years.
Brown treated lumber is the most popular colour on the market. It’s dark at first then fades to a more natural wood colour. No need to stain when first installed but can be eventually stained if you want to keep that dark colour.
