Welcome to the Chattanooga Exteriors blog. Today we are going to be talking about decking. Specifically composite decking. The reasons more homeowners are choosing composite decking today are many. Primarily, composite decking simply outlasts wood by a factor approaching 200%. That wooden deck of yours will last 10-15 years, and that is only if you spend considerable time and energy maintaining it over those years.
Annual pressure washing, staining and sealing is required to keep a wooden deck looking good over time. And if appearance is important to you, it may be more often than that. Splintering is also a problem with wood, as many a barefoot child can attest.
A composite deck on the other hand will easily last 25 years and require a simple hosing down occasionally to maintain its good looks. And forget staining and painting, the color in a composite board goes all the way through. Composites don’t splinter or warp either.
Speaking of color, At Chattanooga Exteriors, we feature Trex High Performance Composite Decking with over 18 beautiful colors from which to choose and it is engineered to resist fading, scratches and stains, so it is highly recommended for pet owners. Trex is the first company to combine the durability of recycled plastic with the natural beauty of reclaimed wood in a high-performance decking product.
Trex decking not only comes in many colors, but has the actual look of reclaimed wood, grain and all. Some earlier composites were no more than plastic planks.Trex is also heavier than real wood, providing a solid feel underfoot that shrugs off wind, hail, snow and rain with ease.
Trex is the nation’s #1 composite decking brand and at Chattanooga Exteriors, we are proud to have earned a Gold Level Installer distinction. We can design your deck to be a signature blend of style and strength that comes together as one weather-shrugging, long-lasting, easy-to-care-for outdoor oasis that beautifully pairs both form and function.
