Say Goodbye to Deck Maintenance

Posted by Image Buildings

With the latest trends in outdoor living, the traditional backyard deck has gone from purely functional to absolutely fabulous.

Whether it is the hub of your home, your entertaining zone, or a cool retreat at the end of a busy day, your deck should be anything but hard work. Tired of spending weekends sanding & staining, Australians are embracing the latest innovation in decking that provides the beauty of timber without any of the hard work.

Three things to consider when choosing a decking material:

 

Maintenance

Will the material you choose require regular sanding, painting or oiling? Wood alternative decking will not rot, stain or fade and never needs oiling, painting, or staining. In fact it requires little or no maintenance aside from an occasional clean with soap and water.

Durability

Not only do you want your deck to look good, but you want it to continue to look good for years to come. Ask if the product you choose comes with a warranty to give you peace of mind that it will go the distance.

Sustainability

Sustainability is an important factor for many people when choosing building materials. So it’s good to know that wood alternative decking is made from reclaimed plastic and wood – materials that would otherwise go unused in landfills.
