Among the types of wood that you can choose, if you want to build a porch, some are particularly noteworthy. Above all, we would like to point out that you could opt for wood species of local origin or for exotic varieties. In the first case you get cheaper and can control the origin better. However, the wood of exotic origin is in many cases resistant to external conditions. Depending on the extraction, it comes from sustainable forests and your decision does not harm nature.

Thermal processing

But you can make the wood, no matter what its origin, by a special processing much more stable. This can be done by attaching special resources externally. Through these, the wood can withstand the water and the heat much better. So you can also opt for native species of wood and these will serve you as well as the exotic ones.

Conifer wood

Pressure impregnated conifer wood is another very good variant for porch construction. Injectors with concertants can help them endure more than 25 years. The deeply penetrated chemical substances prevent the development of all types of fungi and bacteria. The wood has a stylish and aesthetic color and does not need to be painted.

Of the exotic types of wood we would like to recommend the IPE wood in the first place. Evidence of this is very dense and resistant. Even without working, they could withstand the severe atmospheric conditions for a long time.

The IPE tree actually has no competition in terms of material durability.

Teak contains many natural oils and resins. This makes it very stable. For veranda construction, it is also a wonderful choice. Despite the strength, the wood is not very heavy and can be worked well. The natural color is also very appealing.

There are also other woods with these characteristics. But we want to recommend these to you in the first place.
