5 Reasons To Use 25% Thicker Deck Boards

Lowe's Premier Wood Deck

If your next home improvement project is building a new deck or resurfacing your existing one, the question of what type of decking material to use is an important one.

There are different deck building materials available, and your choice will largely depend on your needs, budget and lifestyle. Typically, decking material comes in two types: composite (such Trex) or real wood. And like most materials, they each come in varying degrees of quality.

If installing a wood deck is your preference, the thickness of the decking material can affect the shelf life of your deck. Premier Decking could be the choice for you! It is 25% thicker than other wood decking material and it combines the benefits of composite decking building material with the look and feel of a wood deck.


Here are 5 reasons to use 25% thicker deck boards


1. They require less foundation

Compared to thinner deck boards, Premier Decking requires less foundation and this cuts down the time and manpower needed to install your wood deck. You can get a great-looking deck in a shorter amount of time, and at a lower cost!


2. They feel better

Premier Decking measures 1.25” and the extra thickness gives a solid feel to your wood deck. If you choose thicker deck boards, you will love how sturdy they feel. Your deck will be perfect for outdoor parties, summer barbeques and spending quality time with family and friends.
