And that’s where a reputable contractor can help, sort it all out.

So here’s some basics about the upside of low maintenance.

Composite, capped composite and vinyl decking technology has successfully emulated the look of real wood with the benefit of lower maintenance requirements.

A deck constructed with quality composites or vinyl becomes a deck that no longer requires labor-intensive maintenance, repeated stainings or time-consuming upkeep.

When compared to some woods, composite and vinyl products are less prone to warping, splitting, insect damage, rot, mold and mildew concerns too.

Depending on your preferences and your lifestyle (children, pets etc), low maintenance decking can provide the very best of both worlds — lower maintenance with plenty of style.

Finished projects have the look and graining aesthetics of wood with strength and longevity too.  And best of all, there are solid manufacturer warranties to back it all up, including product-lines from contractor vendors — AZEK, TimberTech, Trex, Fiberon and others.
