Custom Decking Options

Looking for a deck to add more living space? When choosing between a wood or composite deck, it is important to consider the location of your deck. Is it in the sun or shade for the majority of the day? Material should be chosen that will be comfortable in that spot during the hottest days of the year. Other factors to consider when making the decision are maintenance, cost, style and size.

Composite Pros
  • Low Maintenance - No need to paint, stain or seal
  • Safety - Splinter free
  • Durability - It won't splinter, warp or rot.
  • Increases home value
  • Color, texture and accessory selection
  • Long term cost effective - The initial cost is more than wood
    but the low-maintenance composite deck can pay for itself in as little as 5 years.
  • Some manufacturers offer a 25 year warranty
Composite Cons
  • A power washer may be necessary to keep it looking new
  • Initial cost is higher
  • Heat resistance - Composite decks can get hot so you can't walk on them
    barefoot. The lighter colors hold less heat.

Wood Decking Pros
  • Initial low cost
  • Widespread availability
  • Heat Resistance - It doesn't hold the heat like a composite deck causing it to be more comfortable on bare feet on a hot summer day.
Wood Decking Cons
  • Needs to be treated to maintain color and prevent rotting
  • Prone to decay so boards may need to be replaced occasionally
