Florida Deck By Advanced Building Supplies
Most people in Florida have been told that it’s not possible to build a deck with ipe in Florida. The common excuses that retailers give to avoid wood deck in Florida are moisture and heat. A retailer in Florida would rather insist for composite decking or pressure treated decking. One should know that these lumber stores are only interested in selling the product that gives them the most profit. At times the retailers would impose you for plastic decking which require you to trouble your pocket more, just to maintain the deck.
It’s time that Florida residents should know the truth.
Here are a few considerations to keep in mind while choosing a decking material to build a Florida Deck:
- Your deck will be exposed to extreme sunlight.
- In Florida, the summer season lasts for 9 months.
- It rains almost each day in Florida throughout the wet season.
- Moisture makes mold and mildew which creates a problem for all homeowners in Florida.
