Types Of Construction Supplies

Like any major home project, outdoor construction materials vary in looks, durability, and cost. Here is some need-to-know information about the types of building supply materials we offer and how they can apply to you.

Composite Materials

Composite materials are prevalent these days because they are durable, versatile, low-maintenance, and the best in sustainability.

These boards and frames, consisting of a combination of recycled plastic and wood fibers, mimic the look and feel of real wood boards. These properties allow them to provide a similar aesthetic as real wood without the structural drawbacks.

Earth-friendly composites are a great fit for almost any outdoor project. They can provide an excellent touch to a gazebo, set a perimeter as fencing boards, or be used to complete a decking system. It all comes down to user preference.

PVC Materials

PVC boards – often referred to as plastic or synthetic materials – are another common outdoor selection that St. Louis homeowners make.

This material is lightweight and has the same density as white pine, a softwood. These plastic properties give your deck or fence a cool, modern look with some reasonable durability to boot. PVC doesn’t rot, and you’ll never need to apply any finish to it, so the upkeep is pretty straightforward.

These also come in a variety of styles and colors, allowing you to mix and match until you’re 100% happy with the look.

Wood Materials

While composite materials offer a look-a-like alternative to wood materials, it still isn’t the real thing.

Although real wood requires lots of maintenance, wooden materials are still accessible because they provide the most natural look and feel you’ll find.

Wooden boards are great fits for decks, gazebos, fences, and pretty much any other type of outdoor construction project.

Aluminum Materials

Aluminum materials provide a particular style to any home improvement venture.

These metal materials are by far the most durable type on the market. In most scenarios, they’ll outlast wood and composite boards by decades. They’re also low-maintenance, requiring almost no upkeep over time.

The utility that aluminum provides is very well-suited for railing systems. We supply contractors with the most cost-effective and sturdy aluminum railing materials to fit any project at your home or job site. They work great as fences or deck railings.

Steel Materials

Steel deck framing materials revolutionize the world of deck construction, offering a durable and waterproof alternative to traditional wood framing.

With its exceptional strength, dimensional stability, and resistance to rot and insects, steel deck framing provides a reliable foundation for decks that can withstand the test of time. This innovative framing solution allows for greater design flexibility, enabling the creation of expansive, open deck spaces with fewer support posts.

Whether it’s for homeowners or commercial applications, a steel framing system offers unmatched durability, ease of installation, and long-term performance, making it a preferred choice for those seeking a reliable and low-maintenance deck structure.

In addition to board materials, we also supply all the tools that bring these projects together. Whatever you can think of that you’ll need for a new deck, fence, or gazebo; we’ve got the materials to make it happen, such as fasteners and cladding.
