Decking Material Prices in 2024: A Comprehensive Guide for Consumers

As we venture into 2024, homeowners and contractors alike are keen to understand the current trends and pricing for popular decking materials. With a growing emphasis on outdoor living spaces, the demand for durable and aesthetically pleasing decking options has never been higher.

In this blog post, we’ll explore the price trends for some of the leading decking materials, including Trex decking, TimberTech decking (both composite and PVC lines), and hardwood species such as Ipe decking.

Prices are given as price per linear foot where many home owners and contractors are familiar with price per square foot. This is because all decking boards are either sold by the board or per linear foot which means simply a one foot price.

If you are planning on using the most common 6 inch wide deck boards a rough estimate would be to double the linear foot price to determine your square foot price.

Since two 6 inch deck boards even though they have a finished dimension of 5.5 inches wide by the time you add the appropriate deck board spacing your are just shy of one square foot.

Trex Decking

Trex decking, a front runner in the composite decking market, is known for its Eco-friendly composition and low maintenance requirements.

For the coming year, experts anticipate a steady increase in Trex decking prices, primarily due to inflation and rising raw material costs. However, the increase is expected to be moderate, making Trex decking a viable option for those seeking a balance between cost and quality.

Ipe decking, a popular hardwood option, is prized for its natural beauty and exceptional durability. As of 2024, the average cost for Ipe decking is around $5.99 to $7.15 per linear foot. However, prices can fluctuate based on factors such as import costs, shipping costs and availability.

The price trend for Ipe decking in 2024 has been trending downward in the first quarter. While demand remains strong it has come down from the peak demand during COVID which sent prices up over $10 per linear foot.

Consumers that look to buy Ipe wood decking from a local lumber yard will often see pricing in the range of $10 – $15 per linear foot. These smaller lumber yards often buy from a direct importer such as ourselves apply their markup and resell the decking to you.

We encourage consumers to buy directly from us since we are the largest importer. We sell Ipe direct to the end user and ship direct to your home. Being the largest direct importer allows us to offer the best quality Ipe wood and the best pricing for the quality.

Tigerwood Decking

For those that like the looks and durability of hardwood decking like Ipe but need a more budget friendly option we recommend Tigerwood. Tigerwood prices have been trending down much like Ipe making Tigerwood very affordable currently in 2024.

As of 2024, the average cost for Tigerwood decking is around $2.75 to $3.60 per linear foot. Tigerwood starts out with more variation in the grain so you’ll see dark steaks through some of the boards. However as time goes on and the UV rays shine on the boards the variation of the color in the boards mellows out and looks the picture below.

Whether opting for composite, PVC, or hardwood decking, it’s important to stay informed about the latest trends and pricing to make the best decision for your outdoor living space. Remember to consider not only the initial cost but also the long-term value and maintenance requirements of your chosen decking material.
