As far as exterior renovations go, adding a deck to your yard is a great value-boosting project. Not only does it create a perfect space to enjoy the outdoors, but it’s a worthwhile long-term investment. Of course, as with any investment, you want something that will last, which makes a Trex composite deck the perfect choice.
Red Isle Contracting Ltd. are Edmonton’s only Trex Pro Platinum-certified installers for custom composite decks. They share some of the benefits of a Trex composite deck for your yard:
Composite decks vs wood decks
Building a deck in your yard is a guaranteed way to boost both your home’s value and add some major quality of life. Still, when you build an investment such as a deck, you want something that will last. When it comes to materials, the most common choices are either real wood or composite decks.
Many Edmonton decks are built with wood, as the initial installation cost is less than that of other materials. Wood, however, requires much more maintenance throughout its life. The repairs and re-staining work that needs to be done, usually every two years, can actually cost more in the long run. Because of this, and as a lower-cost option, composite decks are becoming the preferred choice.
While the upfront cost of a composite deck is more than wood, the benefits of composite easily outweigh its cost. Visually as well, it just as easily replicates the look of real wood, but without the maintenance. It is resistant to fading, stains, rot, warping and cracking. Composite is also very low-maintenance, needing only at most a soapy wash now and again. Plus, since it’s made from recycled materials, it is also environmentally friendly.
Trex decking is specifically engineered to endure decades of bad weather and heavy foot traffic. It also comes with warranty coverage to prove that fact. Your decking products will be covered by a 25-year Limited Residential Warranty. Even better, the high-performance decking products come with an extra 25-year Limited Residential Fade and Stain Warranty.
Customizable decking boards
Just like the different types of woods available to use for your deck, composite decks can also be customized. With Trex decks, you have the choice of Transcend, Enhance or Select composite boards. Transcend boards offer a wide option of both colours and grain patterns, which lets them look more like real wood. They are also available in multiple tropical colours, such as Spiced Rum or Havana Gold, so you can really customize its style.
Enhance composite decks also offer the grain patterns and colours of real wood. Colour-wise though, it offers more standard decking colours or classic shades. Select composite decks, on the other hand, are much more subtle in the grain pattern appearance. The main difference between the three will come down to a matter of budget and what appearance you prefer.
