Ask a Henrico County, VA, Deck Contractor: Which Type of Decking Is Right for You?
Adding a patio or deck to your home offers many benefits, such as providing additional outdoor living space, enhancing the appearance of your house, and increasing the value of your property. However, it can be difficult to decide which decking material is best for your specific needs. As one of Henrico County’s premier deck contractors, we at Exterior Source of Central Virginia are here to help. We are independently owned and operated, and our owner, Kristian, has over 20 years of home improvement experience.
Trex® Composite Decking Benefits
Trex decking is the most well-known composite deck material—and the company is based right here in Virginia! Trex decking is made from a composite of wood and plastic, 95% of which is recycled material. It is:
- Very durable
- Available in a variety of attractive colors
- Highly resistant to rotting, warping, cracking, mold, mildew, termites, fading, splintering, and staining
Pressure-Treated Wood Decking Benefits
As experienced deck contractors, we know that some people prefer the look and feel of real wood, so we also offer standard pressure-treated wood decking. This type of decking is:
- More budget-friendly
- Often less slippery than composite decking when wet
- Chemically treated to resist termites and other insects
- Can be painted or stained any color to match your home
