Composite & Wood Decks
Choosing the right material is key when considering a new deck for your home. Decks can be made of stained or treated wood, composite wood products, or other materials. Environmental factors such as extreme heat and cold, maintenance, and costs should be taken into consideration.
Custom features such as built-in planters, seating, step locations, and secondary covers can enhance the usability of your outdoor space. Screen rooms or under-decking can also be incorporated into your deck project, depending on the situation. Contact Screenmobile to learn more.
Note: Safety should always come first. Follow proper railing and spacing requirements, obtain necessary permits, and use spring gates to protect children from falls.
The top three types of wood for decks are redwood, cedar, and pressure-treated wood. Redwood and cedar are rot-resistant with natural looks, but redwood requires more maintenance. Cedar is considered a softer wood, but has been used for ages. Pressure-treated lumber is insect and rot-resistant like redwood and is an affordable option. Choose the best wood for your deck based on your preferences, budget, and location. Contact Screenmobile to learn more about your options.
Composite decks are the way of the future. Composite decks require little to no maintenance due to the fact that they are not made of wood. The decks will not crack, splinter, or rot. They are termite-proof. The composite decks also have a wide variety of fade-resistant colors available to match or complement your home or cabin.
