Composite wood decking is a mixture of wood fibers and plastic that are mixed with pigments to attain various colors. PVC decking is 100% plastic and is typically made from recycled materials. PVC decking is lighter than composite, making it easier to move around. Composites have a long lifespan and do not splinter or require routine maintenance such as sealing or staining. Simple, light pressure washing typically keep composite & PVC decking in top shape, .
Wood Decking: Select Selkirk Cedar and Brown/Green Treated
Still among the most common building materials, wood decking is less expensive than composite decking and can be very versatile. Many find the natural beauty of wood, hard to substitute. Regular maintenance, cleaning, and periodic staining help keep a wood deck in pristine condition.
Railing Materials: Westbury, TREX, Fiberon, TimberTech, Dekorators, Azek, and wood!
Just like deck boards, railings can be maintenance free. There are options such as aluminum, composite, vinyl, and acrylic materials:
- Aluminum deck railing is light, durable, and low maintenance. No need to concern yourself with rot or corrosion.
- Composite deck railing is also durable and low maintenance. It looks like wood, but has the stability of a synthetic where it won’t splinter, bow, or warp like wood.
- Vinyl deck railing is scratch resistant and doesn’t fade or crack. This is a great choice for more extreme climates.
If wood railings are the choice, wood spindles are available; or, hybrid railings can be constructed with a mix of wood and metal spindles for added beauty.
