Homeowners often think that because something is labeled as “exotic” that it is more expensive, but this isn’t always the case. If you take into consideration all of the benefits that come with using exotic hardwood on your deck, you’ll actually save money over time. The long lasting nature of these exotic hardwood materials is a huge benefit that draws in contractors and homeowners alike.
Exotic hardwoods are well know for being low-maintenance materials for decking. In most cases, you’ll only need to reseal it every other year as opposed to every year. Staining will only need to be done when you notice considerable fading, which will happen at a slower rate than with other decking materials. In most cases, the only maintenance needed is a spray down with the hose, or a quick sweep to off all the wet leaves in fall.
Exotic hardwoods are an excellent choice for decks due to its natural resistance to all the things that cause a deck to decay and need replacing. Other materials will need protective finishes to avoid harmful damage from 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 a little more protection against the damage from the sun, because of those natural oils within.
Exotic hardwood decks tend to be a tad more expensive than common cedar and redwood decking upfront, but for good reason: it provides one of the highest values of any deck material available. To put it simply, you get a lot of “bang for your buck” because of their durability and aesthetic value.
