We're trying to be fire-wise in our new home in the hills outside of San Diego, California. We're specifying stucco walls and tile roofing. Our decks will cantilever over steep grassy slopes. What's the best material for fire-resistant decks?
Composite decking is expensive, but our Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, climate will be tough on any material. Will there be any long-term savings and benefits in upkeep and repairs using a composite material versus redwood?
