Building a new deck will create a valuable addition to your home and living space. Deck additions will make spending time in your yard enjoyable and improve resale value. When it comes to decking materials, there are a few options out there, each with pros and cons.
Custom Edge Carpentry in Edmonton share the benefits of composite decking and why you should choose a Trex composite deck:
What is a composite deck?
Composite decking is typically made by blending wood fibres and plastic films like polypropylene or polyethylene. As used in Trex decking, this blend creates a durable and robust material that is more stable than 100% plastic decking.
Why choose Trex composite decking?
Durability and low maintenance
The most significant benefit of composite decking is its long lifespan and resilience. It can withstand our extreme climate without cracking, rotting and warping. In addition, fade and stain protection and mildew and mould resistance ensure your composite deck looks new for years to come. High-quality composite decking like Trex can last upwards of 50 years, which is much longer than natural wood decks.
Unlike wood decks, composite decks do not need to be sanded, stained, or sealed to keep them looking great. Simply sweep it off and wash it periodically with the garden hose. While the initial cost of a composite deck might be more than a wood deck, you’ll save in maintenance and repair costs in the long run. It is worth the initial investment.
Attractive and versatile
Trex composite decking comes in a range of colours and styles. If you like the look of natural wood, several options have an authentic wood grain appearance. You’ll achieve a perfect finish with Trex Hideaway hidden fasteners, giving a consistent look with no visible screws on your deck boards.
