SPOTLIGHT ON DECKING
Deck building has become one of the hottest additions people make to improve their outdoor living while raising the value of their homes. There is no better time of year than right now to consider all the options and start building platforms of fun.
WHICH DECKING MATERIAL IS RIGHT FOR YOU OR YOUR CUSTOMER?
Composite decking is an eco-friendly, long-lasting material that will hold its color. Best of all, it requires minimal maintenance – no staining or sealing required. It resists weathering, warping, and bugs.
Cedar wood is ideal decking material. Natural oils make it resistant to decay and insects, and its smooth grain is exceptionally stable and durable when exposed to the sun and the elements.
Besides its beautiful, rich-grain appearance, hardwood decking is incredibly durable and naturally resistant to mold, decay, and termites. It a low maintenance wood that performs in all extreme climates.
Pressure-treated decking is rapidly becoming a popular home addition. It is stainable and resistant to all kinds of abuse. As in most things we purchase, the slightly more expensive, premium or select boards are a smarter choice because they retain their visual appeal longer.
PVC decking, also known as cellular or synthetic decking, is a material for those interested in an extremely low maintenance option. It contains no wood and is made entirely of Polyvinyl. It offers the ultimate protection against staining/fading, and is highly durable in all weather conditions.
