Synthetic Decks


Tired of the yearly maintenance associated with traditional wood decking, we find that many homeowners are turning to synthetic decking. Unlike wood, synthetic decks require low maintenance, never need to be sanded, stained, or painted, are impervious to moisture and insects, and are stain and slip resistant.




Wood Decking


While technological enhancements in synthetic decking are always improving its ability to mimic the look of wood, it is hard to match the beauty of a natural wood deck. When it comes to designing and building a natural wood deck, there are a few advantages that natural wood has over other decking materials:

  • It is non-toxic and very strong for its weight
  • Makes a beautiful deck and can be easily worked
  • Wood is a renewable resource if managed correctly and produced with small fossil-fuel inputs
  • It is easy to reuse and recycle, plus, it biodegrades without any polluting byproducts
  • Generally less expensive to use than synthetic decking




Vinyl Railing


Vinyl railing is an excellent way to accent and improve your porch, portico, or deck. Vinyl railing is especially popular because it requires very little maintenance, lasts longer than wood, never needs to be painted, is impervious to water and insects, and is aesthetically attractive. Vinyl railing will not only provide a secure, durable railing system, but will increase the curb appeal of your home.
