Popular Decking Materials

Northern Building Supply offers the top decking and railing brands in a variety of materials, ranging from
pressure treated and hardwood to
composite and PVC options. 


Pressure Treated is the #1 decking material sold in the United States and is an affordable option for your project. Most pressure treated lumber is milled from Southern Yellow Pine and is chemically treated to resist rot, fungus and wood-boring bugs.


Cedar decking is prized for its rich color and natural beauty. It’s dimensionally stable, resistant to cupping, and twisting. Cedar decking contains tannins and oils that make it naturally resistant to rot, decay and insects. It weathers to a soft silvery gray if no finish is applied.


Hardwood decking comes from exotic rich-grained woods and is long-lasting, high-strength, beautiful, and exceptionally durable. Naturally resistant to rot and insects, hardwood decking will weather to a soft silvery finished if not stained.


Composite decking & PVC are low maintenance and never need to be sanded or refinished. Composite decking is a mixture of wood fiber, plastic, and some type of binding agent. These ingredients are put together to form a material that is denser, stronger, and heavier than wood alone, a wood-plastic composite.
