Types of Decking We Specialize In
Thanks to our decades of experience, our professionals possess a keen understanding of how to most efficiently and effectively design and build a new decking system.
Depending on your preferences, we can build any of the following types of decks:
Composite decking is one of the most common types of decking systems clients request, and for a good reason.
One of the main reasons more people are choosing composite materials is because of the recent product innovations. The colors on the surface of these boards now run all the way through the boards. This effect makes them remarkably more resilient to scratches, dents, and chips.
Due to their efficient production and low-maintenance nature, they’re a cost-effective way to emulate the look of real wood on your deck.
Additionally, since they are synthetic, they come in a wide variety of colors, cutting down on painting labor costs you would associate with real wood.
Overall, the look and feel closely matches wood while boasting more durable performance – so close you’d think you had tropical hardwoods on your deck floor!
While manufacturers create composite decking with a blend of wood fibers and plastic products, PVC decking materials are 100% recycled plastic. The difference in material creates an entirely new category of decking options available to you when you’re designing your outdoor living space.
PVC Decking materials provide their range of benefits and solutions that are hard to replicate to find for years with other decking options.
The most prominent advantage of PVC Decking materials is the low maintenance nature of it. Once installed, PVC doesn’t require annual sanding, staining, or sealing to remain optimal.
Additionally, thanks to its unique synthetic material, it has more versatility than traditional wood fiber blends. This blend means it reigns supreme in terms of color options available.
Finally, the finished product offers a crisp and clean aesthetic and comes in a variety of price points depending on your needs. In the long-run, it’s wide-range of color options, paired with its low-maintenance properties, make it a cost-effective solution for homeowner’s budgets in the long run.
While composite decking offers a look-a-like alternative for wood decking, it still isn’t the real thing.
A new wooden deck offers the most natural look and feel you’ll find.
Wooden decks also require less material to create, making them a cost-effective option compared to composite or PVC type decks. However, the money you save through installation will come back to haunt you with maintenance costs.
Wooden decks require annual sanding and restaining to keep up with the times. They are also much more prone to splinters, termites, and fire damage compared to other materials.
Finally, wooden decks aren’t as environmentally-friendly as other options since they consist of pure wood fibers.
Our experts will guide the way to best suit your home’s unique needs, but ultimately, it is your decision.
