DISADVANTAGES OF WOOD

Wood options can vary, but all have characteristics that should be considered before making the investment.

Pressure treated lumber, like pine, can fade quickly and requires frequent sanding and staining. While it appears to be more affordable upfront, it can actually exceed the cost of a composite deck over time. The price for Redwood and Cedar is growing as environmental conditions, like forest fires, contribute to declining supply. Exotic and tropical woods, like lpe, contribute to deforestation and are not sustainable.

Everything Wood Should Be

With options like crosscuts, wire-brushing and low-gloss finish, composite decking mimic the look of premium hardwood.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We know it can be hectic to try and find a deck contractor who you know can get the job done—not just on time, but also on budget. We adhere to building codes and best practices so that your deck not only looks good, but is safe and efficient.

ARE PERMITS NEEDED FOR DECK REMODELING?
No, permits are only required when building a new deck. When remodeling an existing deck also known as re-skinning, the substructure or foundation of the deck is not changed. There are no permits required to replace the old wooden decking planks with new maintenance free composite decking materials.
CAN MY DECK BE REMODELED IN THE WINTER MONTHS?
Yes, deck remodeling and the replacement of old wood railings to composite materials can be installed all year long – even in the cold winter months!
HOW MANY DAYS DO MOST DECK REMODELING PROJECTS TAKE TO COMPLETE?
Depending on the size of your existing deck, most deck replacements are completed within one week, weather permitting.
WHAT IS THE BEST DECK MATERIAL TO USE WHEN REMODELING AN EXISTING DECK?
The best deck materials are the 4-sided capped polymer. Since the deck material is completely inorganic, meaning there is no wood filler used in the core, decks remodeled with 4-sided capped polymer will last forever and are completely maintenance free.
Can I paint or stain my composite decking to change its color?
While some composite decking brands offer products with a protective coating that can be painted or stained, it’s essential to check the manufacturer’s guidelines before applying any finishes. Improper application may affect the warranty or performance of the decking material. In most cases, painting composite decking is not a good idea to paint since the materials contract and expand with changing temperatures.
How can I add privacy to my deck without compromising airflow and natural light?
Consider options such as lattice panels, decorative screens, or pergolas with climbing vines to create privacy while maintaining airflow and natural light. Planting trees or shrubs strategically can also provide privacy without blocking airflow.
What are the advantages of composite decking over wood decking?
Composite decking is low maintenance, resistant to rot, decay, and insect damage, and doesn’t require staining or sealing. It also offers uniform color and texture and is made from recycled materials, making it eco-friendly.
What are the benefits of adding a deck railing?
Aside from being required by NJ Building Code for most instances, deck railings provide safety by preventing falls and create a finished look for the deck. They also offer opportunities for customization with various materials, styles, and decorative elements.
How can I protect my deck from insect damage?
Consider replacing the deck boards with composite decking and using vinyl railings, which are resistant to insects. Additionally, regularly inspect the deck substructure for signs of insect activity and treat with appropriate pesticides or sealants as needed.
How do I know if my deck needs to be remodeled?
Signs that your deck needs remodeling include fading, peeling, or cracking of the finish, as well as visible signs of wood deterioration such as splintering or discoloration. Remodeling an existing deck includes the removal of all the old wood decking and railings, then installing composite, durable materials for an updated maintenance free solution.
How can I improve the safety of my deck?
Ensure the deck is built to code with proper structural support and railing height. Consider adding a gate at the top of a staircase to prevent falls. Regularly inspect the deck for signs of rot, decay, or loose fasteners. Also consider replacing older wood decking and railings with composite, durable materials.
What are the most popular deck materials on the market?
Pressure-treated wood is an initial popular and affordable option, while composite decking offers low maintenance and lifelong durability. Hardwoods like ipe and cedar provide natural beauty and resistance to decay, though they require substantial maintenance and a continued investment in cost and time with painting/staining and sealing.
