Both Composite and Wood Decks Offer Advantages and Disadvantages
Customers who compare composite and wood decks discover each offers advantages and disadvantages. A variety of considerations typically enter into the selection of building materials. Ultimately, a property owner’s unique taste preferences, goals, and available project budget help guide the selection process:
Composite materials offer some important benefits. First, these low maintenance products resist weathering more effectively than wood. They don’t warp, peel, or rot, and the sun’s rays won’t cause them to fade readily over the course of time. Second, composites supply excellent termite-resistance properties. Many engineered composites do cost more than comparable woods, but these decks may last for 30 years.
Pressure-treated lumber remains a popular building material due to its versatility and ability to accept staining. Natural wood blends well into a variety of outdoor settings. Property owners who decide to change the exterior appearance of the home may easily re-stain or paint an existing wooden deck to complement the renovation. Wood decks have some significant disadvantages: they require more extensive maintenance requirements and it can weather rapidly over time. Most high-quality wooden decks last around 10-15 years. Warping, cupping, twisting, cracking & splintering are all inherent characteristics of wood.
