The Deck Supply is always happy to discuss any decking options. While we offer will-call options and work with a trusted network of lumberyards, we recommend wood deck supplies to keep your deck functional, beautiful and on budget. Your budget, conditions, and preferences are all huge factors in the outcome of your deck, so learn about the supplies our pros recommend every day.
What Wood You Choose?
Wood is graded by grain and the presence of imperfections. High-grade lumber costs more, but it contains fewer imperfections and better-looking grains. Homeowners with higher budgets typically choose exotics. These are always a great choice for quality and beauty if you can manage the maintenance required. For tighter budgets, we recommend sourcing more durable treated wood such as KDAT to stay on budget and avoid frequent replacement and headaches.
Don’t Screw Around
For the structure of your deck, you need the most durable screws on the market. That’s why we recommend CAMO 1/4″ Structural Multipurpose Flat Screws. CAMO designed these screws to get the job done right without having to worry about cracking or splitting over time. These structural screws include a specialized thread pattern for easy drives and a trumpeted head for flush fits.
Just the Right Joists
Wood decks have many intricacies that require specific solutions to get the natural look and professional quality that homeowners strive for when opting for pressure-treated wood deck supplies. Framing is important no matter what deck material you choose, which is why we only trust the best. Simpson is our favorite manufacturer for quality connectors because of their various options. Each solution utilizes galvanized steel to provide a strong connection for post bases, joist hangers, and L angles.
While The Deck Supply doesn’t currently carry basic tools, you’d be surprised what your everyday tool kit can do with a few simple additions. To get started, you’ll need a hammer, level, prybar, shovel, and sawhorses. We also recommend investing in quality power tools. These include a drill or driver and a circular or miter saw. Many homeowners already have great tools, but to get professional quality, you’ll need professional tools.
CAMO has you covered, and The Deck Supply is a leading supplier of these contractor-grade wood deck supplies. The CAMO LEVER tool ensures a snug fit between boards. To fasten those boards down, the CAMO DRIVE system allows you to drive screws in without having to constantly bend over and line up your drive. For the cleanest finish, our CAMO MARKSMAN tools allow you to hold everything together by driving the screws in at an angle rather than straight through the top of the boards.
