Know Your Decking Material Options This Spring
Adding a deck to your Ontario home is a wise investment to make. Aside from increasing the value of your home, this provides you and your family with a space to enjoy the great outdoors. A quality-built outdoor living space is the ideal way to start taking advantage of the home, outside the constraints of your four interior walls.
You certainly have a number of choices among outdoor living spaces, before narrowing it down to a deck. Just as you have a variety of material choices available, before narrowing it down to the right one. Let us help you gain some insight as to the choices that you have in order to make your selection process easier.
Know Your Choices
The most common choices that you have available to you include:
Wood – For some homeowners, nothing but real wood will do. Some of the options that you have include treated wood, cedar, and IPE or hardwood. The look is unbeatable and real wood decks certainly add to the value of your home. However, even treated and sealed wood can end up becoming damaged by elements like mold or termites.
Composite – Some of the best composite wood alternatives are manufactured by reputable brand names like AZEK, TimberTech, Trex, and Fiberon. These decks look like real wood but hold up better against the elements. You will get a longer lifespan and less need for maintenance or upkeep.
Other – for most deck builders, wood and composite are the only options. In fact, many companies only offer one or the other. However, more skilled and diverse companies offer choices like tile, steel framing, or helical piers. Each has its own unique benefits and is something worth considering. For instance, steel framing is actually 50% less heavy than wood and tile can flow seamlessly from indoor flooring to the deck.
The most important step to take is to find a reputable expert to work with. By doing so, you can get the information that you need in order to make a decision that will work best for you. Don’t take chances when it comes to the level of work that goes into your decking system.
