Customers often come to us with a need for a new deck, but are unsure of the material desired. A deck is a long-term investment that will provide enjoyment and entertainment for years to come, so it’s important to understand your options. Both wood and composite materials vary in cost and quality. At Fence & Deck Connection, we offer only the highest quality materials, so rest assured, you’ll be happy with whatever fits within your budget!
For those looking for a more natural look, wood is of course the most obvious choice. In recent years, however, composite decking has grown in popularity and there are plenty of reasons why a composite deck might be the best fit for you and your family.
Composite Decking Is Attractive
Composite decking, also known as synthetic decking, is an environmentally wood alternative that’s comprised of plastic and wood fiber. Though it doesn’t boast the “natural” benefit of a wood deck, there are several color options and textures to choose from that are aesthetically pleasing. At Fence & Deck Connection, we offer only the finest decking materials from all the major manufacturers, including: Trex, Timber Tech and Fiberon. In addition to the many design choices, you can easily add additional accessories like outdoor solar lighting or a pergola which provides extra shade on warm, sunny days.
Composite Decks Require Little Maintenance
One of the greatest benefits for composite decking, as explained by homeowners, is the fact that it’s far easier to clean and maintain than wood decking. For starters, composite decking is more resistant to weather, pests, mold, and other natural sources of decay and color fading. It’s certainly easier to clean than standard wood decking — no need for yearly power washing, sanding and staining! All you need is a soap and water to get your composite deck looking fresh and clean.
Plus, the material doesn’t rot, crack, splinter, or deteriorate with time — making this decking material a great choice if you have small children or pets. No need to worry about going barefoot all summer long!
The Price is Right
When getting estimates for a new deck, homeowners may find themselves with a bit of sticker shock when it comes to composite materials. These types of deck materials are more expensive than wood, but when the price is right, it’s a no brainer!
