Composite Deck Construction

Since their introduction in the mid 90s, composite decking materials have come a long way. The newest generation of products from the top manufactures exhibit a vast improvement over the growing pain problems that some have experienced.

I am partial to the "Trex" brand as I believe they offer the best product, and at a competitive price. There are other high quality materials such as Timber tech, and Azec. We have experience in each of them.

Benefits to choosing Trex composite decking:

• 25 year decking warranty

• Great hidden fastener system

• Very good selection of colors, and trim options

• Easy to clean

• Non skid surface

• Extremely scratch resistant

• Guaranteed 98% color retention

• Available steel frame system

• Core composite is made from all recycled materials

• Largest, and most established company

Some older wood covered decks can often be replaced with Trex decking without replacing the entire frame. If the under structure is viable, this can save a fair amount over a total replacement. Probably 90% of the new decks we build have composite decking.
