Wood VS Composite Decks?

When it comes time to build a deck, one of the first decisions you need to make is what type of material you want to use. There are two main types: composite and pressure treated. Each type of material has its own unique benefits and drawbacks, so it can be tough to decide which one is right for your project. Regardless of which type of deck you decide on, we are the best choice for either! The following will help you decide which one is best for you & your Lincoln home!

Composite Decks:

The Pros: 

Composite decks are made of a mixture of wood and plastic, which gives them many benefits over pressure-treated decks. First, they are much more resistant to rot and decay than pressure-treated decks, making them a great choice for areas that are prone to moisture. They also require very little maintenance, unlike pressure-treated decks which need to be regularly sealed and stained. Another big benefit of composite decks is that they come in a variety of colors and styles, so you can find the perfect one for your home. With a composite deck, you do not have to spend as much time worrying about the deck deteriorating over time. We at Toolbelt Construction are the ONLY certified TREX installer in the local area! They are the largest name in composite decks! 

The Cons: 

The main downside to composite decks is that they are a bit more expensive than pressure-treated decks. However, the benefits you receive from having a composite deck usually outweigh the cost difference. Composite decks can also suffer from warping and staining, so you will need to be diligent in keeping them clean and free of debris.

 

 

Pressure-treated decks:

The Pros:  

Pressure-treated decks are made of wood that has been soaked in a preserving agent to make it resistant to decay and insects. One of the main advantages of pressure-treated decks is that they are much more affordable than composite decks. They also tend to last longer than composite decks, making them a good choice for homes that will be lived in for many years. However, pressure-treated decks require regular maintenance, such as sealing and staining, to keep them looking their best. They also tend to be darker in color than composite decks, which some homeowners may not prefer.

The Cons: 

One downside of pressure-treated decks is that they require regular maintenance in order to keep them looking their best. This includes sealing and staining the deck every few years, which can be a lot of work depending on the size of the deck or patio. As you ponder your project, you will want to keep the maintenance costs in mind.

Is a Deck Worth the Investment in Lincoln?

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Decks

How Much Will It Cost to Build a Deck?
Decks can vary in size and complexity depending on the size of your backyard and if you want features like railings, steps and pergolas or trellises. The type of wood you prefer for your deck can also impact the final price. On average, pre-treated wood decks cost $20 per square foot, and composite board decks cost up to $45 per square foot.
How Long Will It Take to Build My Deck?
We send an estimate within 72-hours of the consultation and design phase. Custom decks can take between three and four weeks to complete once the construction phase begins. The materials are ordered and stored at your property before construction begins.
What's the Difference Between Composite and Pre-Treated Wood Decking?
Pre-treated wood includes chemically-treated pine, redwood, cedar lumber. These materials can resist damage from mold, insects, and rot over the years, making them a good choice for long-term durability. Composite boards are built from a mixture of wood and recycled plastics that molded to form wood-look slabs. These materials are also resistant to insect and rot damage, and they’re widely recommended when durability is your top priority. While both materials share several positive characteristics, composite boards offer better durability. Real wood boards are preferred because of their natural appearance and lower costs.
