Hello - I'm building a deck in the Boston, MA area. The substructure was built using pressure treated wood. The next step is to do the railing and decking material. I'm not going to live in the house for more than 5 years so I want decent quality but not the best (i.e. Mahogany).
What type of wood can I use for the railing if I want to paint it white to match the house? Does Pressure treated wood take the paint?
Also - what is the next best alternative for a decking surface beyond pressure treated wood?
