Should I go with Wood or Composite?

One of the major questions for people building a deck these days is whether it is better to go with wood or composite material for it's construction. Which one is the best in terms of maintenance? In terms of longevity? In terms of aesthetics?

The answer, although it depends on your individual preferences, is that going with composite is probably the best choice.

Although wood decks are often aesthetically pleasing, they require an increased amount of maintenance. You have to reguarly sand and paint your deck just to maintain it. With composite, this is not necessary. Although it may cost more during the construction phase, it actually saves you money in the long run. Plus, today's composite materials offer a great variety of designs, including ones that mimic the look of wood.

When comparing the two, composite is almost always the better choice. However, at Exterior Specialties of PA we can and will build any deck you desire! Call us today for a free estimate!
