Decking – choose the right Materials
Decking is an integral part of your Garden and building it is an Art. It adds beauty and Value to your Garden. It helps you in enjoying the beauty of your Garden better.
Once you decided to build your Deck, the next step involves in choosing the right Material to build your Deck. It is easy to decide what size and where to put your Deck. The toughest part of the Project is the question what material to use. Till now pressure-treated Lumber has been the standard material for Deck builders. It’s easy to repair and work with Wood.
Nowadays Homeowners have a growing choice when they visit their local Home Center. Composites are the Decking materials that have seen the most rapid growth in sales among Consumers. Composites are a combination of Polymer Resins and premium recycled Wood Fibers that offer the best of both Materials.
The resins shield the Wood from Insect and moisture damage, while the Wood protects the resin from UV damage and adds stability and traction. In the Decking material decision maintenance is another key factor. Some Homeowners may opt for pressure-treated Wood that they can stain a color to their liking and seal.
Homeowners who choose Composites can choose from several different Colors but never have to stain, seal or treat. For both options, a good pressure-washing at least two times per year is a good habit to get into. These composite Decking and railing systems offer all the beauty of Wood without time-consuming upkeep. It gives you more time to enjoy the Season, by minimizing maintenance.
The Composite looks, installs and works like Wood, with added protection against shrinking, rotting, decaying, and splintering and termite damage. Conventional Woodworking tools will do the job. No special tools are needed for installation. If you do choose to go with a composite Decking material, experts recommend purchasing all the material at one time, as manufacturing runs can produce slightly different Colors.
Like most Composites, individual Deck Boards will have slight Color variations from piece to piece. This is due to the natural variations in Wood fibers and Polymers. The important fact is that make sure that you design your Deck which may be useful for all your friends and your family.
So your fabulous Deck depends on the type of Material you choose.
