Building or Replacing a Deck?

05/19/2017 10:00AM, Published by Jennifer Gonzalez, Categories: Family Features Home and Garden, Family Features



Nearly 40 million decks in North America are projected to be more than 20 years old – and
likely showing their age, according to the North American Deck and Railing Association.

If you are looking to remodel call Ben Stout Construction for all of your home-building needs and trust them to use quality materials that will last.

Long the go-to material, wood is increasingly being replaced by composite decking as the material of choice for outdoor spaces. Designed to deliver incredible durability, easy maintenance and lasting beauty, composite decking offers all the beauty of wood without the hassles of continuous upkeep.

“Today’s homeowners want to spend their time enjoying their outdoor living spaces – rather than maintaining them,” said Adam Zambanini, vice president of marketing for Trex, the world’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking. “High-performance composite decking stands up to weather and day-to-day wear far better than wood. It’s also made from recycled content, which makes it an ideal choice for today’s eco-conscious consumers.”

Here are five key advantages of using composite decking:

Durability
Composite decking is designed for maximum durability. It resists fading, staining, scratching and mold, and won’t rot, crack or warp. It’s also insect-proof and splinter-free, making it safer and more comfortable for families with kids and pets.

Low-maintenance
With composite decking, you never need to worry about sanding, staining or painting. Just an occasional soap-and-water cleaning is all that’s needed to maintain stability and beauty for decades. Trex decking even comes with a 25-year Fade and Stain Warranty, ensuring that it will continue to look and perform as well as the first day it was installed.

Aesthetics
Featuring high-definition wood grain patterns and rich, saturated colors, composite decking looks and feels more natural than ever before. Color options range from deep earth tones to spicy reds and pristine greys, including tropically-inspired boards that feature the distinct streaked look of exotic hardwoods. In addition to the range of decking looks available, homeowners also can find a wide selection of composite accessories, such as railings, stairs, gates, pergolas and furniture, to create a truly customized outdoor space.

Sustainability
Composite decking provides the look and feel of wood without the environmental impact. The deck boards are made using recycled content, including reclaimed industrial wood scraps and recycled plastic from common items such as shopping bags and newspaper sleeves.

Value
Although the initial cost of composite decking can be higher, when you factor in the cost of ongoing maintenance required with a wood deck, a composite deck can end up paying for itself in well under 10 years.
