Our team here at Installations Unlimited wants to help you bring out the best in your home, including your outdoor living spaces. If you want a way to enjoy the outdoors more often, you may have already considered adding a deck to your property. When planning a deck, one of the first decisions you’ll have to make is whether you want one that’s built of natural wood or a composite. In this article, our team will go over what we consider to be three key advantages of composite decks over their wood counterparts.
- Lower Maintenance- A traditional wood deck may look great when it’s first completed, but in order to keep it looking that nice, you’ll have to keep up a regular routine of sanding, staining, and even replacing boards. With composite decks, you don’t have to worry about any of that, as the material is resistant to warping and water damage—all it needs is an occasional cleaning with soap and water in order to stay as beautiful as it was the day it was installed.
- Greater Durability- Another advantage related to the one above is that composite decks have greater durability compared to traditional wood. Not only does it resist fading and scratching, but it’s also impervious to rot and mold and won’t warp, crack, or splinter. If you want a gorgeous deck without having to worry about the possibility of it decaying or being eaten by termites, we encourage you to reach out to our team at Installations Unlimited to learn more about our composite decks.
- Better Value- Although the initial cost of building composite decks is often greater than building traditional wooden ones, in the long run, you’ll be able to save money on staining, sanding, and other upkeep, making a composite deck the more cost-effective option in the long-run.
