Deck construction experts build high-quality structures out of superior materials. Decks are available in a wide range of styles, shapes, and colors, built to meet varying tastes and needs.
When building a deck, one of the most important decisions to make is which material to use.
Many homeowners are now choosing composite decking instead of traditional wood. There are many advantages to having a composite deck.
This popular deck building material is constructed from wood composites generally crafted from wood fibers combined with a mix of plastics. The finished product offers a real wood appearance with added durability.
In fact, today’s composite decks are almost indistinguishable from genuine hardwood. Some manufacturers have even simulated textures, colors, and grains that may appear in a real cut of wood. They can offer a wider variety of emulated wood products without having to find or destroy the actual trees.
Another advantage, composite decking is low maintenance. It requires significantly less attention than traditional wood decking to protect the investment. The material will withstand the elements much better and will not rot or fade like wood. There is also no need to stain or paint a composite deck. This can save time and money over the long term.
Composite decking is also much safer for you, guests and family. You can rest assured no one will end up with the painful splinters that go along with natural wood as it wears. You will also avoid slips and falls because unlike slippery wood decks, composite decking is slip-resistant.
