If you are thinking about adding a deck onto your home, you have a lot to consider. You will need to think about the size of the deck, but more importantly, you have to think about the material you will use. Wood is standard, but in recent years, trex deck materials are becoming more popular. There are many reasons why you should consider building a trex deck. Here are just a few.
You likely already have a long to-do list when it comes to home chores and regular maintenance. When you build a wood deck, you add to it. On the other hand, a trex deck needs no painting, staining or sealing and it will still look good throughout the years.
- High Levels of Beauty
When you get a wood deck, you know it will look good, but you have to put effort into the appearance. With a trex deck, you get the all natural beauty of wood with none of the work. The deck will look good for many years with no effort.
- No Safety Hazards
Wood doesn’t stay in its form long term. It can split, splinter, crack, or even rot. When it does that, it becomes a safety hazard that can dole out splinters and other unwanted items. Trex material, on the other hand, won’t do any of those things and remains safe for the long haul.
- No Insect Damage
Wood is susceptible to insects like termites. If termites take hold, they can cause structural damage to the wood. With a trex deck, you don’t have to worry about damage from insects. Termites are not interested in trex material.
- Variety of Options
You can get a trex deck in a wide range of fade-resistant colors. There are enough options to complement any home. Wood can be stained into any color, but you have to re-do the stain every year or two in order to keep the beauty and to maintain the wood.
- Ages Well
Trex deck material ages very well. When you compare it to any type of wood, it looks better after a decade later than any of them.
If you want deck material that is long lasting and low maintenance as well as beautiful, find a builder and consider a Trex deck. Made from 95% recycled material, you’re even contributing to eco-friendly options.
