With wood decks you have to make sure you purchase high quality decks and that these are designed well as the process can prove to be difficult to maintain.
One obvious advantage with a wood deck is that real wood has a very distinct look and feel. It looks very natural and aesthetically pleasing; this will only make your entertainment or indoor area look very attractive and appealing.
In addition to this visual appeal advantage, this decking options is relatively affordable and widely available. A problem you can expect however is that it tends not be dimensionally stable. This especially becomes a problem when you have the wood deck for a long time without adequately maintaining it.
Another problem is that in the long run, even if you polish your deck on a regular basis, UV lighting, the rain and constant changes in the weather will have an adverse effect on the colouring and texture of your deck. To try and make it last longer you will probably have to protect your deck against the elements of the weather. Keep the deck covered during the rain and against heavy exposure to the sunlight.
