Are you planning on sprucing up your backyard with a deck? Adding a deck to your home conjures up images of idyllic afternoons reading or napping during warm sunny afternoons. It would also be great for festive get-togethers with family and friends, barbecuing on the grill with cold beverages on hand. If you want to dine and relax outdoors, it would be a whole lot better if you have a comfortable and clean place to do it.

There are other alternative outdoor spaces like a patio or green grass under your feet for a more romantic set up, but a deck beats all of that as it extends your living space. It creates a clear flow of space from your home to the outdoors without you or your guest getting grass or mud on their shoes. Having a deck to your home can add aesthetic value to your home in terms of enjoyment. One of the great advantages to having this addition is that it can also be a real asset for future re-sale value.

If you are considering on getting a deck, choosing the design and materials can be a bit tiring. Every homeowner wants any addition to his or her homes to be perfect. However, one of the downsides to getting deck especially the wooden ones is maintaining that elevated expanse of lumber. It can be a downright chore, what with all the staining, bleaching, and scrubbing it requires to maintain its appearance. You would also need to replace any board if it gets warped, rotten, or splintered, to prevent any accidents. However, you need not worry, as there are now alternatives to the high maintenance wood decking.

A great alternative is composite decking. Composite decking is made from wood waste and recycled plastic. The composites are made from one of many polymers. Added to it is finely ground wood flour and additives that stabilize the plastic as well as protect it from UV damage. The demand for composite decking products in Salt Lake City has risen in the past decades. When it first came out people were a bit put off because they were fake looking and were limited to one or two colors. But advancement in technology over the recent years now have come up with products that have been able to replicate the look of wood without the required high maintenance routine of wood decks.

Modern day composite decking products in Salt Lake City now uses a combination of plastic and wood fibers. The newer products also come in different types of colors, grain patterns and thickness. And the great thing about these new composite decking materials is that they have the color all the way through the boards instead of just a coating unlike the ones from decades ago. So scratches are hidden, and the boards with remain stain free and will not fade. One of the features of composite decking is they are not only mold resistant but also insect and rot resistant as well.
