Compare Wood Decking Options Before You BuyBelow is a chart you can use to compare wood decking materials. This chart compiles information gathered through numerous tests conducted by the USDA Forest Laboratory. The results are conclusive. The hardwoods that OHC provides you far exceed the results of traditional woods like Treated Pine, Cedar, and Redwood.

While other suppliers choose to make grandiose claims about the woods like Ipe, we believe giving you the facts and information you need is more valuable. If you have any questions about how any of our hardwood deck materials might perform in your area, give us a call today.
