Makeover Monday: Grey Composite Deck in Millersville, MD

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, and there is no need for sanding, staining or sealing.

Knowing they wanted to upgrade their wood deck to composite material, homeowners in Millersville, Maryland reached out to Fence & Deck Connection for help. With a vision of a grey deck, Project Consultant David King presented several hues and budget categories. Based on their choices, we were able to design a beautiful Island Mist colored Trex composite deck for our wonderful Anne Arundel County customers


While Fence & Deck Connection provides removal and haul away service for old fences and decks prior to the installation of new materials, some customers choose to take care of this first step themselves. Once our customers completed this initial step we were construct a new frame to support 360 sq. ft. of Trex Transcend decking in the Island Mist hue. A cool medley of calming silver tones, Island Mist mimics the weathered look of driftwood, with its true-to-nature vibrancy and realistic grain pattern. Trex Transcend decking’s deep wood-grain pattern and luxury colors create a premium, ageless look that leave other composites in the dust. It’s also known for maintaining its vibrant color and luxurious finish — it’s resistant to fading, staining, scratching and molding.

White Washington style railing with round black aluminum balusters enclose the new space, and a Island Mist cap board provides a nice touch. Railing cap boards provide an elevated finish, and a convenient spot to rest plants, beverages, or hands and elbows as homeowners watch children or pets play in the yard. Two sets of three 5′ wide steps with white risers were placed on either side of the deck for easy access to and from the yard. White vinyl fascia wraps the entirety of the deck to complete the new look!
