Wood deck framing or steel deck framing?

What are the advantages of the steel deck framing construction method vs wood deck framing? And what determines the differences? Our expert made the comparison, but the choice is yours.

Wood vs structural steel

The main difference, of course, comes from the difference in the construction materials. And, in this case, the difference is striking.

  • The wood frame is subject to dry rot, mold growth, fungal growth, and pests, like rodents, termites, and other insects. Structural steel, like ASTM A500, or ASTM A36, is totally free from all these problems, and thus are superior for outdoor applications, like a steel-framed deck
  • Pre-fab steel framing system comes as a complete framing system, pre-manufactured in the metal fabrication workshop, or in the factory, and can be quickly installed. It doesn’t require as much costly on-site labor, as wooden framing does
  • Structural stability of the wood frame is often compromised by twisting and warping of wooden members, wherein structural steel members are structurally stable and will stay so for decades to come
