When purchasing wood for a deck, what is are the questions / process used to properly select wood for stairs and the landing area:
The photo shows new planks installed with older planks, weathered by the Florida sun. The details (paint / stain / etc) of the older planks are unknown. The new planks were cut to match the old planks.
When all is said and done, a decision must be made at Home Depot (or the like) and decide which plank of wood to be purchased. I would think dimensions are set, however, any guidance regarding any other decision points are appreciated. Thank you
