Deck Materials

Today we have more options when it comes to building decks. In the past, most people relied on pressure treated wood to build a deck. With vinyl and composite decking materials such as PVC, the styles and colors offer you more choose.

The classic look of wood is something that always complements your home, but you might love the way that other materials stand up over time with its proven durability. Another reason you might choose more modern materials is due to the enhanced selection of colors. Whether you prefer a classic wood deck, or something like composite decking, we can help you create a deck that you’ll love.

Extra Options

One thing to consider is built in seating. When people build a deck, they often think about a great patio set. What if you have a party and more people over? With built in seating, you always have ample room. It’s also a great addition that saves space and allows you to skip patio furniture if you prefer.

Consider deck lighting or built-in planters to add an extra bit of pizazz and personality. Specially designed steps can offer a unique look. There are different railings that you can choose from, just like decking material.

A gated stairway is another option, and a great way to keep the little ones or even the pup on the deck without worrying about the stairs being an issue.

Maintenance

When it comes to maintaining your deck, a pressure washer is a fantastic tool to have in your arsenal. It’s just as easy to rent one if you don’t own one. With composite materials, a good quick way to clean your deck is with a store-bought deck cleanser or easily make your own with a few basic ingredients, such as water, alcohol, bleach, and an ammonia-free soap. Before jumping into mixing your own cleanser, be sure to research what’s been recommended for your specific deck materials.

If you have a wood deck, you’ll want to stain and seal it again over time. We’ll help you understand what steps you’ll want to take to best maintain your wooden deck, but again a power washer is your friend. There are special cleansers and deck stains available at most home improvement stores to make the job easier.
