San Antonio Custom Decking

A hot tub can be an exciting and endlessly beneficial addition to your outdoor living space. It can be a great way to stay warm in the cooler months, bring friends and family to your home, or simply help you to destress after a rough day at work. But is your deck ready for the new hot tub?

Moisture and chlorine from the water in your tub can take their toll on some wooden decks, which is why it's a good idea to go with composite decking.

Other Decking Options for Hot Tubs

Want to consider other options when it comes to decking for your hot tub? You can consider using wood, especially if it's hardwood like Ipe', Massaranduba, and Tigerwood. However, you'll want to be sure to use a strong sealant, particularly marine grade, in order to keep out any moisture. It can be a bit of an investment, but for those who prefer authentic wood, it may be worth it. You should also keep your hot tub clean regularly in order to encourage airflow and allow moisture to dry.
