Do you want a beautiful composite wood deck, but aren't sure if your traffic levels or maintenance capacity would make it possible? Then take a look at award decking's composite wood products.
Composite wood decking is much less of a maintenance and upkeep challenge than you might think. You have a vision for your new deck, and if your heart is set on composite wood, then don't let preconceptions be an obstacle for you. Read on to find out a bit more about award's durable and gorgeous composite wood products.
First, Award Composite woods have a little something special in their recipe. Most composite wood manufacturers use an aluminum oxide finish on their products. This is a fine, durable coating, but compares it to award's Wearmax® Plus advanced ceramic finish, and the choice is clear. Ceramic coatings are specially designed to resist scratching and denting and enable a deck to take some abuse without looking tired and worn as quickly as other decks might.Composite Outdoor Decking.
The coating also makes your deck stains and slip-resistant. So if you know that your deck is going to take a beating to one degree or another, then definitely place award's composite woods as your forerunner in deciding on product for your new deck.
And what about maintenance? Again, with Award's high-octane finish, you're one step ahead in the maintenance race. You just don't have to worry as much. Now, you certainly want to take normal precautions in protecting your deck—because it's still wood.
1.You'll want to use door mats at the threshold of any doors that open to the outside to catch those tiny rocks that embed in shoe soles.
2.You don't want to walk over the deck with damaged or spiked heels.
3.Make sure if you need to move furniture that you protect the deck with casters or use dollies or good old fashioned lift so the feet don't scrape across your deck.Composite Patio Decking.
4.Never use pools of water or abrasive cleaners to clean your deck.
5.Your deck really does take care of itself when kept sweeping and tidy.
Now to the fun part—picking the color and style for your deck. And award definitely doesn't let you down there either. Award offers six collections ranging from traditional hickories and oaks to mahogany and cherry as well as varying textures, colors, and styles. There's sure to be several you'll love…the tricky thing will be deciding on just one.Composite Privacy Fence.
The main advantage of composite decking over wood is its durability. Because the composite is chiefly made up of synthetic material, it is not susceptible to damage from termites and will not be rot from exposure to moisture. Composite decking plus does not crack or splinter like traditional wood. However, staining and scratching can be a problem when using composite decking. Depending on the color of the composite decking, it may become faded after prolonged exposure to the sun.
