Ecolife™ Stabilized Weather-Resistant Wood is fully protected against termite attack and decay, and the proprietary treatment also stabilizes the wood structure. Ecolife Stabilized Wood significantly reduces the problems of bending, twisting, or warping that affect many other treated wood products, so Ecolife performs much better as the structural frame under any deck surface.
Features & Advantages:
For a low-maintenance alternative to wood decking and railings, consider a composite or vinyl product.
Vinyl decking products are available in many forms, including hollow extrusions and cellular (solid) products. Hollow extrusions are frequently used for both decking and railings. On the other hand, cellular products enable manufacturers to create decking products with a more wood-like appearance for those who want a more natural look to their deck.
Why to Choose Vinyl: Vinyl decking products are now available in styles that look like wood but won’t warp, splinter, rot, split or blister. Dirt can be washed off with a sponge and hose or with a pressure washer. Vinyl is a durable, low-maintenance option that will provide long-lasting quality.
Composite decking can create the natural appearance of wood.
If you’re in the market for a near-zero maintenance deck, composite decking might be the perfect fit for you!
Composite decking, aka engineered wood products, come in a bewildering number of variations. Some offer solid boards while others are hollow. Some are “capped” or “co-extruded” with a layer of PVC while others are not. Some require multiple components for assembly while others are more like building with wood. What is common to all is they are made with recycled fibers, plastics, and binding agents.
Why to Choose Composite: Like vinyl decking, composite decking is pre-finished. Composites create the appearance of real wood decks, but they don’t need staining or painting and require little maintenance. Dirt can be washed off with a mild detergent and a hose. Composites are environmentally friendly, too. Up to 95 percent of materials used in manufacture are from recycled sources. They include materials as diverse as wood flour, rice hulls, and plastic containers.
Wood is the most popular decking material because of its natural appearance, versatility, and cost.
Wood is the traditional material for building decks, with pressure-treated Southern Yellow Pine being the most popular. Many of our customers choose pressure-treated wood for its affordability and longevity. For those who want the most natural look, cedar is the ideal choice because it naturally doesn't absorb water and won't twist or split.
Why to Choose Wood: Wood can be crafted in a wide variety of styles and painted or stained in an infinite number of colors. The initial cost of a wood deck is significantly less than a vinyl or composite deck. Properly constructed and maintained, it will be quite durable and will last for decades. In addition, wood can withstand high winds better than other materials. Unlike petro-based materials, wood, if sustainably harvested, is renewable.
Siting: There are many considerations, including your home's floor plan, orientation to the sun and prevailing wind, landscaping, and utility locations.
Size and shape: Decks are often thought of as distinct outdoor “rooms.” There may not be any walls, but your deck may need to accommodate a cooking area, a dining area, a spa area, and a lounging area.
Traffic flow: For decks upon which a variety of activities take place, it’s important to plan for traffic flow.
Railing styles: Railings are often the first thing you notice about a deck! Let us help you chose a type that suits your home and landscape – and that ensures the safety of your family and friends.
Privacy: We can offer solutions to homeowners who want privacy and have close-by neighbors, including trellises and pergolas.
Comfort: A deck isn’t going to get used when the sun is blistering hot or when it’s raining. Ask us about roomy retractable awnings that provide protection from the elements without cluttering up the deck.
