Does It Last?
Composite decking in Potomac, MD, last 50 years or more, a considerable improvement over the 15-20 years of an average wood deck. The material is able to withstand the effects of weather extremes and moisture, so it doesn’t warp, rot or splinter.
It resists stains and graffiti and deterioration from both fresh and salt water. Insects like termites can’t bore into it and it is impervious to bacteria, mold and mildew.
Chemicals and cleaning products won’t affect its looks or it integrity. Fading isn’t a concern because it isn’t affected by the UV rays of the sun.
All of this also means very little upkeep is needed to keep its good looks. Unlike wood, it doesn’t need to be stained, sealed or painted every few years. Sweeping it and hosing it down periodically is all that is required.
Does It Look Attractive?
Composite decking in Potomac, MD, comes in a wide array of colors, textures and grains. Many homeowners choose a wood grain because it looks like a classic deck. Additions to the deck are also available in composite materials, like gates and railings.
