Perhaps the best decking material that combines beauty and durability is the wide-array of composite decking options. Manufactured from reclaimed wood fiber and recycled plastic materials, composite deck boards require less maintenance and feature a longer lifespan than natural wood. Building your new deck with composite deck material means you’ll enjoy years of use. Unlike pressure treated decking, composite deck boards won’t splinter, rot or need staining regardless of how extreme the weather.
Composite decking is eco-smart. According to This Old House “Every 20 feet of decking contains 30 pounds of material that would have ended up in a landfill. Trex ®, the first and largest of the composite manufacturers, recycles six million pounds of plastic each year.” Trex ® decking is made from 95% recycled materials, including reclaimed wood and sawdust as well as recycled plastics from many common household items. Stanton Premier Deck Builders is happy to provide a Trex® decking cost estimate for our Maryland customers, as well as our Pennsylvania customers.
Your design options with composite decking materials are limited only by your imagination. Offering a variety of wood grain patterns and warm colors, your deck will be sure to both compliment and enhance the beauty of your home. In addition, the wide-range of price levels means we can deliver a beautiful upgrade to your home that will fit within your budget.
Plus, choosing a composite deck is a smart investment. According to Remodeling.hw.net’s 2016 Cost vs. Value Report, they estimate a 64.4% return on investment for composite deck additions on a national average. While the initial costs might be higher than pressure treated wood, long-term costs of composite deck boards are substantially less when you include maintenance and eventual replacement of split, rotted and warped boards.
