Composite decks are a popular alternative to traditional wood decks. They are made from a combination of wood fibers and plastic. They only require washing one or two times a year for typically maintenance and come with a 2 – 7 year labor warranty and a 25 – 50 year material warranty. Composite decks result in a durable and low-maintenance deck.
Raised decks are a popular feature in many homes, they are typically constructed above ground level, supported by a system of posts and beams. They can offer stunning views of the surrounding landscape, whether it be a sprawling backyard, a garden, or a scenic vista. Raised Decks require stairs and railings for safety and security.
The most common wood deck surfaces are cedar, pressure-treated and exotic hardwoods. To prevent moisture buildup, mold growth, and damage from weather elements some maintenance is required, regular cleaning and sealing (staining or painting). Homeowners should inspect their decks periodically to check for signs of cracks, splits, and rot, and address any issues to prevent further damage.
PVC Decks are made from 100% polyvinyl chloride (PVC), this decking material is engineered to resist moisture, insects, and rot, making it an ideal option for outdoor use. PVC doesn’t contain any wood fibers, therefor it doesn’t absorb moisture. PVC decking can become hot in the summer months, homeowners may want to install a shade cover such as a pergola or a cover (awning).
