In any case, wood is always a joker in the hands of the one who is decorating. You can create wonderful environments with it. All you have to do is take care of it so that it always looks beautiful, especially if it is being used in the structural part of the porch, like the floor, for example.
Hence, we list below the advantages and disadvantages of using wooden flooring on the balcony, so you can make your choice aware of all the pros and cons:
Advantages of the wooden porch
- The wood is a great thermal insulation, keeping the temperature always pleasant to the touch. Using it on the floor ensures that it feels good to walk barefoot without getting your feet too hot or too cold;
- In addition to thermal insulation, the wood also has a good acoustic performance providing greater comfort in the environment, since the sounds do not rebound on the surface.
- Regardless of the type of wood used or the finish given to it, the material will always present its natural veins guaranteeing a beautiful rustic effect, sometimes softer or more intense.
Disadvantages of the wooden porch
- One of the biggest disadvantages of using wood, especially in outdoor environments, is the need for constant maintenance.

Each type of wood requires differentiated maintenance and the more exposure to sun, rain and wind, the greater the need for maintenance as well. Review these factors before choosing the type of wood that will be used on your balcony.
- Another disadvantage of coating the porch floor with wood is the cost of this intervention. Wood is one of the most expensive materials for flooring and, depending on the type of wood used, it even surpasses the more expensive models of vinyl floor and porcelain tile. One option is to use wood carpet, however if the porch is exposed to bad weather, this type of flooring is not recommended, as its resistance is low.
- Wood is also very susceptible to termites and other insects such as drills, for example. To avoid this kind of problem, carefully check the origin of the wood and treat it properly with products that repel the visit of these unwanted guests.
