Visually, decks are one of the most stunning additions to your home. They’re undeniably a way to refine the exterior of any property. Whether you’re into a light-hearted patio, or a more sophisticated and polished look, there’s a deck design to suit every taste and need. For kids, decks offer a place to run and play, and they can be a great place for family and friends to get together for grilling or playing games.
Many homeowners opt for wood decking because it is aesthetically pleasing and is durable enough to withstand not just the elements but also heavy foot traffic. For those who are looking for something a little different, there are several options. Once of these is Composite decking.
Composite decking provides a more economical and practical alternative to other decking materials. Another specification that many homeowners find appealing is composite decking is not made from wood, which can help make it more versatile. Composites are made from a recycled material that is made into pellets during the manufacturing process, which can be shaped into boards or slabs which are then assembled into a deck. The beauty of composite decking is that it has been designed to withstand harsh weather conditions such as high temperatures, rain, and snow, thus giving homeowners peace of mind when installing composite decking material for their deck. Composite decking is low maintenance – unlike wood, which can crack, warp, and rot over time, composite decking is less likely to do so.
A composite decking material is more environmentally friendly and does not fade over time like other man-made products. Additionally, composite decking is less likely to splinter, making it the safest choice for pet owners. When you have composite decking installed, you get 25 year guarantee, once it’s down it’s down. It’s a higher upfront cost upfront, but when you account for the cost of cleaning and paint as well as labour to keep a traditional wooden deck maintained, you’ll easily be better financially in less than 10 years.
Other options for decking include the more natural-looking cedar, with the flexibility of touching soft surfaces like flowers.
The deck is one of the best places of the house to relax or to simply enjoy the nice weather, spending time with friends and family. Decks give you a lot of options and can be customized to fit your needs, if you’re planning on building your own deck, it’s very important that you plan for storage space beneath it and find out any local zoning laws. Since decks have a tendency to break down over the course of a few years, it’s important to maintain them regularly.
