With more than 60 years of combined experience, LPB Construction Inc. has been creating quality decks for three generations. Our team constructs decks of all sizes from both pressure treated lumber and TimberTech® composite decking. While both building materials are beautiful and durable, composite decking offers some distinct benefits to homeowners.
One of the primary benefits of composite decking is its durability. Composite boards are comprised of a capped polymer material that is resistant to moisture and weathering. As such, composite boards don’t splinter, warp, or fade.
2. Mold and Mildew Resistance
Similarly, composite decks are more resistant to mold and mildew than are wooden decks. The polymer caps surround the core of the board to prevent moisture intrusion, thereby inhibiting the growth of mold and mildew.
3. Low Maintenance
Unlike wooden decks, composite decks never need to be stained or sealed. Additionally, whereas wooden decks need to be scrubbed and sanded to remove mildew, splinters, and peeling paint, composite decks only need an occasional light cleaning.
4. Holds Value
Installing a deck improves the value of your home. However, the integrity and appearance of the deck determines how much value is added to your home in the long run. For example, a traditional wooden deck can easily become a liability if it is not properly cared for and maintained. Alternatively, composite decks hold their value longer because they maintain their appearance and are less susceptible to rot and weather damage.
5. Versatile Design
TimberTech® offers a large variety of colors, grain patterns, and finishes. As such, homeowners have full creative license with the look and style of their deck. There are no limitations based on the hardness or availability of the wood, as with a traditional deck.
6. Sustainable Materials
Composite decking is the most eco-friendly decking material on the market. In fact, TimberTech® uses up to 80% recycled materials in their capped composite decking and has never felled a tree to create their materials. In 2019 alone, the company diverted 290 million pounds of waste from landfills for material production!
