Download Free Southern Pine Decks and Porches Guide

After debuting the new 12-page full-color Southern Pine Decks and Porches brochure at the 2011 International Builders’ Show in Orlando, the Southern Pine Council has made it available for download on its website, providing homeowners and contractors invaluable help with designing and building an outdoor living space. Offering insight on deck and porch construction from start to finish, the new brochure “highlights the beauty, durability, comfort and value that pressure-treated Southern Pine materials bring to outdoor structures.”

The brochure provides information such as:

  • helpful tables listing joist and beam spans
  • tips on fasteners, finishes and proper maintenance
  • porch and deck designs
  • proper specification and use of treated Southern Pine materials for decks and porches

Our Southern Pine decking has been pressure-treated with ACQ, an EPA-registered pesticide containing copper and quaternary to protect it from insect attack and decay, and it also has been endorsed and/or certified by numerous organizations for being sustainably managed and produced such as the Forest Stewardship Council.
