Advantages of Composite Decking
Spring is here at last! Building a deck during this time of year is rewarding because you’ll have all of spring, summer and autumn to enjoy your new investment. But what material should you choose for your new deck? There isn’t a wrong answer here, but today we’re going to spotlight the advantages of composite decking materials. It isn’t always the cheapest option, but several advantages make those extra dollars well spent.
The Lowest Maintenance Option Out There
There isn’t such thing as a maintenance-free deck, but a composite deck is the closest thing to it. You won’t have to worry about staining, painting or replacing decaying parts if you opt for a composite option. Instead, you can just keep an eye on your deck throughout the year and decide when it’s the right time for your first power washing (this will vary based on the dampness and exposure to light surrounding your property).
The Color of Your Choice
If you have a specific color in mind for your deck, choosing composite materials will be the easiest way to make it a reality. You could simply paint your wooden deck, but that is a tedious and time-consuming job. A few years down the line, you may find that repainting is needed to restore your wooden deck to its initial beauty. That isn’t a concern at all with composite decking materials.
The Safest Choice
When wooden decks begin to wear, splintering can start to occur as a result. If you have any bare feet (or paws) traveling across your deck, this could lead to pesky splinters. If splintering gets bad enough, you could even get a splinter simply by using your railing with your hand. Splintering is physically not possible on decks constructed from composite materials, so that is not a concern at all. Additionally, composite decks are highly slip-resistant, so you can feel a little safer after these April showers cover your deck.
