Cedar:  You should use the cedar wood to construct your decks if you like the natural wood like texture. The center part of the tree, the heartwood, is resistant to moisture and other pest infestation. It’s amber or yellow color attracts many home owners. Without moisture absorption, cedar wood is almost resistant to the twisting and splitting. To keep the cedar wood in good condition, it is advised that you paint and seal the wood in around every two years.

Redwood: Use of redwood will give you the aesthetically pleasing eco-friendly deck. It can be a bit more resistant to the moisture and decay than yellow pine wood. The similar point in using cedar and redwood is that they need to be stained every two years. Price of redwood will be a bit higher than cedar. The reddish brown hue color of redwood is extremely appealing.

Composite: Composite decking materials are resistant to water, bugs and other detrimental effects. Though these come in different textures and have similar durability, these are not the wooden decks.
