Choosing an Alloy for your Decking Project

Offering the best craftsmanship and an elevated customer service in MA since 2019

One of the major elements involved with a deck building project is the primary materials implemented with the construction. One of the leading alternatives that have come to the forefront in recent times is metal alloys.

Some of the elements you need to consider when choosing a metal alloy with your Porch Builder include:


Malleability refers to a metal’s ability to be shaped into varying forms without breaking. This allows a builder to easily handle the material when implementing a particular design with their construction, enabling them to implement different angles and curvatures to their work. Malleable metals will require lower volumes of construction material.

Corrosion Resistance

The metal you choose must be highly resistant to corrosion. If you live in an area that experiences frequent rainfall or snow, finding a metal that’s highly resistant to corrosion greatly enhances the longevity of your structure. Stainless steel and aluminum represent two popular options when considering corrosion resistance.

Heat Conductivity

If your deck’s design will incorporate metal with its railing, choosing an option with low thermal conductivity is advisable to avoid burning your hand during the hotter seasons of the year. You can encourage this aspect by combining metal with material such as wood. For quality metal decking building services, call us today! Exponential Construction, your preferred contractor.
