Makeover Monday: Replacing a Wood Deck With Composite

There are numerous reasons why many of our Maryland clients make the switch from wood decking to composite decking. With Trex decking, you can enjoy long-lasting, low-maintenance beauty for decades to come thanks to their 25-year warranty. After all, your time outdoors shouldn’t be spent sanding, scraping and staining – it should be spent sitting on your deck enjoying the view!

Brian Hannon, one of Fence & Deck Connection’s experienced Project Consultants worked with our clients to transform their outdated and worn outdoor space. Take a look at the “Before” photos below and continue reading to learn more about the project details.

Once all the project details were set, the deck was designed, and the county was received, our hardworking crew was able to get to work! We removed the existing deck and replaced it with a new 22′ x 12′ space using Trex Select composite decking in Pebble Gray using hidden fasteners — a popular color option this spring and summer. A diagonal pattern was used, adding a distinct character deck and can emphasize the view or affect how people move through the space. The deck is wrapped in white vinyl fascia and black Alta Ultralox aluminum railing secures the perimeter. One set of 4′ wide steps completes the project. We absolutely love the updated modern look!
