When it comes to decking materials, homeowners have several options to choose from. Two of the most common types of deck materials are wood and composite decking. For wood decks, most choose between pressure-treated lumber and cedar wood decking. While wood is a classic, attractive, and durable choice, composite decking has become a contender over the years.
Prestige Woodworks in Edmonton shares some helpful tips when buying and building a composite deck:
Consider the two main options for maintenance-free decking
One of the greatest benefits of composite decking is that it is virtually maintenance-free. It is resistant to moisture, rot, warping, and pests. Unlike wood decking, it doesn’t require painting or staining. For the most part, a sweep and wash with the garden hose are all your composite deck will need to keep looking great.
There are two main types of maintenance-free decking. The first is composite, which has a core made from high-quality recycled plastics and wood fibre wrapped in a PVC skin. The second type is solid PVC decking. The solid PVC decking is more expensive than regular composite but is backed by longer warranties. Knowing the difference between the two can help you make a decision that is best for your needs and budget.
Choose products backed by manufacturing research and experience
There is a massive variety of composite decking available. Unfortunately, there are some inferior decking products on the market. They are often mass-produced in countries like China by companies that do not have research and proper development behind them. You might feel attracted to the idea of a cheap composite deck. Remember that these products will not last and do not have warranty support. In just a few years, you could be very dissatisfied with your deck.
Prestige Woodworks offers composite decking products that were manufactured in North America. The manufacturers have decades of research and manufacturing experience behind them. The products are backed by good warranties also. Spending the money on quality products will ensure your deck lasts for years to come. It is a worthwhile investment.
Proper installation is key
Professional deck builders have the product knowledge and installation experience. They can install your deck more efficiently, and be more equipped to deal with any issues that might come up during the build.
