Wood-plastic composite decking (as well as PVC decking) is designed to stand up to the elements, allowing it to maintain its beauty for years. There is no need to paint, stain or seal it, which is often a burdensome yearly project with traditional wood decks. And, because it resists most weathering, warping, and bugs, you won’t find it necessary to replace rotting, uneven, or insect-damaged boards.
Unlike many traditional wood decks, wood-plastic composite decks are splinter-free and slip-resistant, making your home a little safer for bare feet, small children and pets.
Traditional wood decks can be beautiful but not for long. Wet springs, blistering summers and frigid winters quickly take their toll, leaving some wood decks faded, splintered and warped. Wood-plastic composite decking and PVC decking is made from a process that results in consistent, low-maintenance decking performance with warranties you can count on.
Increases Home Value
Wood-plastic composite decks not only add value to your lifestyle, they add value to your home. With a composite deck project homeowners can recoup much of the investment when selling their home. Remodeling Magazine's 2012 Cost vs. Value Report estimates a 62.8% return on investment for composite deck additions on a national average.
Color and Accessory Selection
Wood-plastic composite manufacturers offer a variety of color choices – many that even emulate the look of traditional lumber or exotic hardwood. In addition, you can also find deck accessories ranging from railing, handrails, gates, and post caps to deck lighting, all designed to complete your outdoor living space and complement and enhance the beauty and safety of the deck.
Many people are surprised to hear that pressure-treated decking can be more expensive than composites in the long run. True, the initial cost of wood is in most cases less, but when you add in the cost of on-going maintenance on a wood deck, including cleaning and sealing every few years, a wood-plastic composite deck can pay for itself in as little as five years. More important, pressure-treated wood deck boards will likely warp and splinter over time. Even if maintained well, some wood deck boards will be ready for replacement in less than 10 years.
In the end, choosing composite decking vs. wood decking is a personal choice. We can say that a TimberTech warranty will provide you 25 years of peace of mind. TimberTech even offers a 25-year fade and stain warranty on some of its products – a commitment and benefit not available with many treated wood decks.
The ultimate goal of installing a deck is to provide a functional outdoor living space that you, your family and your friends can use and enjoy for years to come.
There are many factors to consider while planning your deck. Initial cost, long term cost, functionality and amount of maintainance required.
