Tips on How to Buy and Build Your Perfect Composite Deck
Planning your next deck project? There are several deck material options to consider. The two most common deck materials are composite and wood.
For wood decking, you have a choice between cedarwood or pressure-treated lumber decking. Traditional wood decks are classic, attractive and durable. Composite decking materials have become a stronger contender over the years. Especially for those looking for lower maintenance options.
Maintenance Free Decking
One of the things our clients like most about composite decking is that it’s virtually maintenance free. Composite materials are moisture, rot, warping, and pest resistant.
Unlike traditional wood decks, composite decks don’t require painting or staining. So, you get to spend more time enjoying your deck. And, a broom and a hose are all you need to keep your composite deck looking great!
When it comes to maintenance free decking there are two options. Composite, where the core is made of high-quality recycled plastics and wood fibre wrapped in a PVC skin or, solid PVC decking.
Solid PVC decking is more expensive than regular composite materials but, it’s backed by longer warranties. Know the difference between the composite decking options can help you make the best decision.
Choose Products Backed by Research and Experience
There’s a massive variety of composite decking materials available. In fact, the selection can be overwhelming. Unfortunately, there are some inferior composite decking products on the market. They’re often mass-produced in countries like China by companies that don’t have proper research and development. While a more affordable composite deck might seem attractive, these products will not last and don’t have warranty support. In a few years, you could be very dissatisfied with your deck.
We only work with high quality composite decking products that are manufactured here in North America. The manufacturers we work with offer decades of research and manufacturing experience. The products are backed by quality warranties. Investing in quality products will ensure your deck gives you peace of mind for many years to come. A worthwhile investment.
