If you want to add a deck to your home, it’s important to choose the right material. While many homeowners love the look of traditional wood, they don’t love the maintenance and upkeep it requires, or its vulnerability to damage. Fortunately, other options exist to provide the good looks of traditional wood without the drawbacks.
Our team at All Seasons Outdoor Spaces has installed countless composite decks over the years, and we have put together this article to go over a few of the benefits they have to offer.
- Durability – One of the main perks of composite decks is that they are extremely durable. Not only is composite wood more than strong enough to bear the weight of all your outdoor furniture and your guests, but it is also resistant to both water and insect damage.
- Reduced Maintenance – Compared to wood decks, composite decks require hardly any maintenance. With a wood deck, you will need to periodically re-stain and re-seal the boards to prevent the color from fading and to protect the deck from water damage. With a composite deck, on the other hand, the color will not fade, and you will never have to re-seal the material because each board is already permeated with waterproof polymers. The only maintenance you will need to do is regular sweeping and the occasional pressure wash.
- Lower Environmental Impact – Lastly, many composite decking options are made of recycled wood and plastics, making them a highly environmentally friendly choice. If you are looking for a green deck option, we encourage you to give us a call to learn more about our composite decks.
