Any Austinites / Round Rockers know of other wood places other than HD or Lowe's? Going to be building a deck in about a month and wanted to start my homework and see if there are better, less expensive supliers (not those those 2 are neccessarily higher)

Also: any recommendations on doing cedar deck versus pressure treated deck and then stain it ? My frame will be presure treated wood but deck will be cedar. I imagine a cedar deck will be a little less maintenance and that's probably what I'll do but wanted some opinions.


Thanks.

Check out McCoy's for the treated lumber. Much better than hd or lowes.

The Rhino guy sounds interesting.
There's also Austin Wholesale on Lamar.
Right in my hood.
I built my frame then went to Lowe's and HD and selected out clear 2x6 smooth cedar for my deck.
Don't scrimp on the fasteners, you'll be sorry.
I'm a wood butcher by trade.

Another vote for McCoy's. We have a HD, Lowe's and a McCoy's about 5 miles from the house and if I am buying wood I use McCoy's.
