If you have a wooden deck, you’ve likely accepted that staining your deck every few years is the price you have to pay for having an outdoor living space. On average, it takes most wood stains around four hours per 100 square feet to fully dry. If you have a 300-sq ft deck, that puts your outdoor space out of commission for at least 12 hours after each staining.
We’re going to let you in on a little secret: you don’t have to live this way! Keep reading to learn how you can skip the staining while still enjoying an amazing deck in your backyard.
The Simple Solution: Composite Decking
Get more time back in your weekends by upgrading your current deck with composite decking and you’ll never have to worry about staining it again. Unlike wood, which fades over time, composite decking is designed to stay vibrant long after the installation date.
When you choose composite decking, all you have to do is hose it down with water a few times per year to keep it looking great. Talk about a timesaver!
What Else Makes Composite Decking the Best Choice?
Are you intrigued by the idea of removing “stain the deck” from your to-do list forever? Well, there’s even more to love about composite decking!
You know firsthand that it’s only a matter of time before your wood deck starts to show signs of wear and tear. Wood is prone to rotting, mold, and mildew, meaning you’ll eventually have to completely replace it.
Composite decking, on the other hand, is made from a much more durable material. It won’t rot over time and it’s less susceptible to damage from weather and pests compared to wood. By replacing your wood deck with composite decking, you’ll have a beautiful, functional deck that’s made to last.
Endless Color Options
Your deck should be a reflection of your personal style. Composite decking comes in a number of different colors and finishes, so you can design an outdoor space that perfectly complements the rest of your home’s exterior. Best of all, it will retain that same beautiful hue for years to come with no extra work required. Compared to wood decks where you will need to consider the different types of deck stain and worry about color, it’s no competition.
No Annoying Splinters
Many of our customers use their decks as a space to spend precious time with their families.
