MATERIAL: Allied’s deck builders recommend composite decks for Northville, Michigan
They type of material you choose is a major component of determining the cost of your deck. Allied’s deck contractors recommend composite decking by Trex and TimberTech for Northville homes.
Unlike wood decking, composite decking holds up to snow, ice, and freezing temperatures. This makes composite decking an excellent choice for Northville, Michigan homeowners.
Composite decking is 95% recycled material. It’s a wood polymer made of plastics and wood pulp. And unlike wood decking, it’s rot and insect resistant.
It’s made to last.
In fact, composite decking has a life span of 25-30 years. Trex guarantees its product to last 25 years. Most wood decks only last 15-20 years—but only if you pay for costly upkeep to preserve the wood.
Although composite decking costs more initially than typical wood decks, homeowners save in the long run on maintenance cost. Composite decking is virtually maintenance-free. You won’t need to reseal like with wood decks. All you need to do is hose off with soapy water to keep your deck looking pristine.
Trex’s composite material costs on average between $30-$40 per square foot. Average wood cost about $15-$20 per square foot and $2 per square foot every 2 years for maintenance.
Composite decking is also quicker to install than wood due to the uniform materials. And it gives a seamless look because our Northville deck builders use clips, screws, and hidden fasteners as they construct the composite deck.
