Adding a deck to your home provides you with an expanded living area where your family can relax, entertain, and be outdoors while also enhancing your home’s worth. Decks are also extremely versatile and can be enjoyed in the warm summer months as well as during the colder months of the year making it the ideal addition to your home.
For many years up until the 1990s, wood lumber was the primary material used in building exterior decks. Clear red cedar and redwood decking were higher-priced and therefore using pressure-treated softwood was a suitable economical alternative to these costlier counterparts. However, the problems with using pressure-treated wood quickly became evident, as most wood decking eventually turns gray as a result of the natural environment. Continually, wood decking is extremely susceptible to cracking, warping, rotting and splitting when not perfectly maintained. As a result new alternatives have infiltrated the decking industry consisting of a wide range of tropical hardwoods, various composite decking materials and PVC decking, all taking over as the decking industry’s material leaders. Composite decking products are more durable, longer lasting, and require significantly less maintenance than most types of wood decking materials, which is why they have become an industry leader. Composite decking products are typically comprised of wood fibers and recycled plastics, and although they are more costly than traditional wood decking materials, their performance quality, low maintenance and durability have proven exceedingly valuable, convenient and worthwhile.
