Whether your family has a graduation, wedding, or just some good old-fashioned barbeques on the horizon this summer, enjoying al fresco gatherings can build lasting memories. The North American Deck and Railing Association (NADRA) considers May Check Your Deck® month, because Spring is the perfect time to ensure your outdoor space is secure. Safety is the number one priority at AZEK® Building Products, and as a proud member of NADRA, we would like to share a few tips that can help protect your family and friends throughout the celebration season.
A deck not only adds beauty and value to a home, but it also provides your home with additional useable living space, especially during the spring, summer, and fall seasons. In some cases, however, a wood deck may seem to be more trouble than it is worth when you consider all of the annual upkeep it demands, and its potential for being invaded by wood-burrowing insects or worse – water damage.
One of the benefits of capped composite decking is that it’s ultra-durable and resistant when it comes to common issues that typically affect wood decking materials.
Of course, that’s not to say that a capped composite deck doesn’t require anymaintenance. There are still some things that a composite deck owner should do to enhance the look and longevity of their deck. But even more importantly, there are certain things you should never do to this type of deck. Learn the do’s and don’ts of caring for your capped composite deck.
When temperatures start to rise and the sun makes its appearance in spring, improving your back yard can truly create added value and enhance the look and feel of your space. If you have a concrete patio that you want to transform into a more beautiful and impactful outdoor space, installing capped composite decking over the patio is not only a great choice, but it’s actually pretty easy to do, as well. This type of deck is called a “floating deck” even though it’s not really floating.
With so many different decking materials available these days, homeowners are always weighing the pros and cons of each before making their final decisions. And, all homeowners really want the same thing – the most durable and longest-lasting decking material for the lowest price.
It’s no surprise that next generation decking materials like capped composite decking and capped PVC decking run at the higher end of the cost spectrum. But, is this really the truth when you look at the entire lifecycle of the deck and its total cost of ownership?
