Wooden Deck: Types, Care and 60 Project Photos

When talking about wooden deck usually comes in the head that structure mounted around the pool. But wooden decking can go much further and lend its charm, comfort and beauty to other spaces in the house as well.

In outdoor areas, for example, the wooden deck can increase the path of the entrance or the garden. Imagine a pergola built on a deck? It would look nice too, would not it?

Inside the home, balconies are preferred places for installing wooden decks. But with a little creativity you can take the structure to toilets, bedrooms and even to the walls of the house. Yes that's right! Decks can line the walls, especially when the idea is to create a vertical garden.

Check below what types of wooden decks used, how to make wooden deck and the care needed to keep your deck always beautiful:

Types of Wooden Deck

There are two types of wooden deck for you to choose from. The most common and used are the modular wooden decks. This deck model is sold in plugs with male and female docking, they are easy to install and do not require specialized labor, that is, you can do all the work yourself.

Modular decks can be used both in the external area and in the inner part of the house.

The traditional deck models are those made by individual wooden boards, fitted one by one on a previously assembled structure. In this case, it is recommended to hire skilled labor to ensure correct placement of the deck. It is also worth mentioning that traditional decks should be made with Ipe, Jatobá, Angelim and Itaúba wood, since they are more resistant.

Another significant difference between these two deck models is the price. The modular deck tends to be more economically advantageous, since the price of each plate 30 × 30 centimeters costs, on average, $ 18. That is, to cover a square meter you will spend about $ 80. The traditional model can cost R $ 250 per square meter, not to mention the expense of the labor required for installation.

Tips and care with the wooden deck

  • Before purchasing the deck, take measurements from the site to know precisely how many boards or boards are needed for the project;
  • The deck, whether modular or traditional, must be waterproofed. The best option is the stain, because besides waterproofing the wood, the product still protects against UV rays, insects and mold. Another advantage of stain is that it is easier to apply. The varnish, however, protects only from the water. In both cases the recommendation is to perform a maintenance per year;
  • When planning the décor for the wooden deck, look for something as cozy and comfortable as possible. The tip is to abuse plants, futtons and cushions for this space, so that the deck is always ready to receive and accommodate who arrives;
