Wood VS. Composite
There are certainly pros and cons of both choices, but maintenance is likely at the top of the list. There is no question that composite materials are becoming more and more realistic and offer options that wooden decks do not. One such example of a choice that only comes in composite is hidden fasteners. This is a great option if you ever intend to go barefoot or have children playing on your deck. One possible advantage to using wood for your deck is you have the option to change stain colors or paint in the future. Composite decks will always be the color you choose. Another advantage wooden decks have over composites is that composites, no matter the color, get very hot in the sun. There are many other choices to consider when designing a deck and the experts at Poynter Landscape are here to help you through those choices.
