If You Think Composite Decks are Low Maintenance, I Have A Unicorn to Sell You
There’s no such thing as stain-free, or maintenance free man-made decking. Period. End of story.
The only thing in flux is “resistance.” How does a decking material resist getting mold damage? What about excessive heat? Bitter cold? Everything on this Earth has to contend with the elements. So, if you’re considering replacing your deck, or building a new one from scratch, look past the fancy words and pictures and ask yourself:
- Is the decking I want proven to last?
- Is it worth your money to buy the “latest and greatest decking” when its long term performance is yet to be determined?
- What do other people who own similar materials saying online?
- Are the warranties worth the paper they’re printed on?
If you find you can answer these questions positively, then you can move forward with confidence.
