Knot Just Decks uses both composite material and pressure treated wood, so you can select the ideal material for your unique deck. Trex composite decking gives the appearance of hardwood with minimal maintenance. Both natural wood and composites are attractive and long-lasting.
How do you choose which type of decking is best for your home?
Ask yourself the following questions:
Will your deck be exposed to much direct sunlight? Composite materials tend to retain much more heat than natural wood. (Of course, you could always add an awning, canopy or pergola.)
How much time are you willing to devote to maintenance? (Or how much are you willing to spend for someone else to maintain your deck?) Wood decks require routine maintenance: washing, staining, sealing and inspections for rot and insect damage. Composite decking requires little to no maintenance. All you need is a broom, hose, bucket and sponge to keep it clean.
Do you prefer consistency or the variations that nature provides? Wooden decks have “character marks” and color variations; most composite decks are much more consistent with regard to color and patterning.
Are aromatic qualities important to you? If so, a natural cedar deck may be the way to go. If the smell of natural wood does nothing for you, you may want to select composites.
What do you consider “green”? Wood decks are composed of 100% biodegradable materials. On the other hand, Trex decking is made from 95% recycled materials, so it depends on your definition of “green.”
MORE ADVANTAGES TO TREX COMPOSITE DECKING
Trex decking will not splinter, rot, warp or attract termites.
Trex composite decking requires minimal maintenance. Scrubbing with soapy water and a soft-bristle brush is usually all that is needed to keep your deck clean. Then you can spend more time enjoying your deck and less time maintaining it.
Trex composite decking is fade, stain, mold and mildew resistant.
