One of the best things you can do for your property is to build a deck. In terms of resale and return on investment, decking is almost always a positive addition to your home. Not only will a deck give you more outdoor space that you can use, but it creates a custom and attractive feature. Here at Pegram Builders, we know that one of the biggest things holding people back from building a deck isn’t always the cost, but the fear of continual cost due to maintenance and staining. In these cases, we might recommend composite decking as a material that could work for you. Is composite decking right for your needs? Let’s take a closer look.

Do you want to avoid the maintenance that comes along with staining and treating your wood deck? There are plenty of products and services out there that make up for the fact that wood decking needs to be treated every few years, but every few years is too often for some people. Composite decking, on the other hand, never needs staining, stripping or treatment.

Do you like to walk barefoot around your outdoor spaces? Composite decking does not, and will not, splinter or give off slivers, no matter it’s age. This can be comfortable for those of us who prefer feet to shoes, although you will need to take caution as some colors of composite decking can become extremely hot.
