Deck Maintenance: Wood Vs. Composite

If you have a wood deck, this season’s outdoor to-do list probably includes loads of deck maintenance. There’s the check for worn fasteners and loose rails, and that thorough cleaning, not to mention a new round of sanding, staining and sealing. It’s a lot of work, and may have you rethinking your deck altogether.

Deck Maintenance: Wood vs. CompositeComposite decking is a great choice for your outdoor space, whether you want to transform an existing, worn wood deck or build from the ground up. It offers just as much design flexibility, but with a high-tech resilience that stands up to weather, foot traffic and age. Composite decking also captures natural wood’s good looks, while providing an easier care routine that only involves occasional soap and water cleaning.
