The Plan

  • Product Selection
    In today’s market we have an abundant amount of product selection to choose from. I’m going to talk about three products Pressure Treated Lumber, Composite Materials and Aluminum.
    • Pressure Treated Lumber will require regular maintenance. It will be the least expensive to purchase. Pressure treated lumber will be left bare of paint and stain for one year after installation. After that you will maintain it by power washing and staining yearly or every other year.
    • Composite Decking is wonderful for the fact its virtually maintenance free. To maintain it just spray down the deck with soapy water, hit the excessively soiled areas with a scrub brush where needed and rinse.
    • Aluminum is the most durable material to be used for building a deck. The metal boards are rust and scratch resistant. The product will have minimal cleaning requirements: power wash, rinse and go. Like the composite material, make sure to rinse thoroughly to avoid a film like layer on its surface. The biggest perk aluminum has to offer is the temperature of the material stays relatively cooler than composite decking.
