Weathered Wood Composite Decking, Chesterfield Mo, by Archadeck in St. Louis West County

For many St. Louis homeowners, the enjoyment of adding an outdoor space incrementally rises as the chores and maintenance for said space, declines.

And this is all made possible with low maintenance materials including composites, which are designed for backyard structures like decks or screened porches.

‘The reason’ you ask?

Composites, such as EverGrain’s Weathered Wood (as shown above), can simulate the characteristics of natural wood but require minimal care.

No staining.  No painting.

In comparison to natural wood, composites were originally masterminded using a compression molding process to repurpose and recycle wood and plastics into a strong decking plank.

The end-product – a re-created board with a semblance of wood grain patterns and a consistent product appearance.

Additional benefits of using composites as an alternative to wood for decks, porches, gazebos (and more) include…

  • an impressive lineup of color choices with a combo of grain patterns
  • composites can also feature color highlights to further emulate wood’s texture and variation
  • coordinated composite skirting products are available for a complete and ‘finished’ look
  • coordinating, low maintenance designer railing systems can add traditional or contemporary style
  • hidden fasteners create a smooth, sleek surface and smooth appearance
  • building code approved with manufacturer warranties
