Trex & Composite Decking
Deck building has traditionally been dominated by the utilization of wood material rather than composite. With new technology and highly rated experiences composite and trex decking has become a contender with wood. Composite decking is an alternative created with a blend of wood and plastic. Trex boasts a ninety five percent recycled status delivering options for environmentally conscious consumers. The price associated with the use of composite is higher than traditional wood options however the maintenance and are necessary to keep the deck in optimal condition is far less than wood species.
The installation process of trex and composite decking is important, the material requires a standard spacing between boards. The material of composite decking expands and contracts with the change of temperature leaving you with a decking installation that needs room to breathe. By regulating the spacing in –between boards we can mitigate any damage caused by the expanding and contracting of boards with the heat. Installation completed by our experienced team is supervised by an on-site supervisor ensuring that the boards and secured and spaced as necessary.
Wear and Tear
The painting and sealing services required by regular decking options are avoided with the help of composite and trex options. Your deck composed of this material is a low-maintenance option for you to enjoy. The composition of the decking is plastic and wood materials blended together to create a durable and easy care surface. There are a few things to look out for once you have chosen composite decking for your space, the first thing that we remind our clients is that the material is not indestructible. Composite decking and trex is still prone to enduring wear and tear including scratches. To ensure a long life and enduring competency we recommend the easy wear of the surface.
A great benefit that comes with the choice of composite or synthetic decking is the low maintenance required for upkeep. Unlike traditional wood installations the ongoing care involved with a composite or trex deck is minimal. The additional cost that is associated with this deck is mitigated by the reduced care and the diffused decomposition that come with composite. Care for this type of installation involves the periodic mopping and repairs on any aspects of the deck in need. We remind our customers not to pressure wash composite decking as it can compromise the competency of the material leaving you with damage at the end of the day.
The application of textured finishing on the top of your composite decking installation will leave you with a slip-resistant surface. The application of this greatly decreases the hazards associated with wood decking. Organic decking materials are great options for homeowners, they are affordable and create visually appealing finished products, they do come with a slippery condition though. The organic material is prone to algae growth making the surface exponentially more slippery than the alternative of composite.
