Spring is already here and building custom decks in your backyard is one of the best ways to create a space to spend time and enjoy outdoors with family and friends in the long warm summer months. However, deciding what material to use can be a challenge –is it natural wood or composite decking such as Trex or TimberTech Azek?
Custom decks are a long-term investment and you’ll be enjoying it for many years to come, thus it’s extremely important to understand the materials to use before you start the custom decks construction. While choosing the materials to use can be a difficult decision, here are 5 advantages of using composite decking to make the choice easier for you.
- It comes in different colors and hues
Composite material mimics the look of natural wood, it comes in a variety of rich colors and wood patterns such as browns, grays, tans, and reds in different shades, so you have a wide range of selections to choose from to perfectly fit your home and landscape design.
- It is weather resistant
Composites use protective shell technology that can resist changing weather and their rich colors are designed to endure years of sun, rain, and snow.
- It is stain resistant and easy to maintain
Composites have a durable outer shell that makes it resistant to stains, thus easy to clean. No sanding is needed; though minimal cleaning with mild soap and water to prevent mold and mildew build-up. So, if you are a busy homeowner, composite decking is a perfect choice for you.
- It will not splinter or decay
Composites utilize shell protective technology that makes the materials resistant to splinter, scratch and decay for years. Your children and dog can play on your deck, and the material won’t get damaged, or your guests can even enjoy walking barefoot without concern for splinters, screws or nails.
- It is eco-friendly decking
Composites are made from recycled materials, including sawdust and plastic film, and is manufactured by using earth-friendly processes –reclaiming factory waste and eliminating the use of harmful chemicals. They are known to be the most widely used and environmentally friendly composite decking materials on the market.
