ARTICLE ON SELECTING DECKING

Lower-cost pressure-treated lumber is the least expensive decking material and is widely available. We also install thermally-treated hardwoods and more expensive exotic woods like Cyprus and Brazillian hardwoods. Wood decks generally need more maintenance than man-made materials like composite, PVC, or mineral-based decking materials. We also work with log decks and log railings.
Traditional composite decking is a man-made building product that includes an approximately equal mix of recycled wood fibers and recycled plastic. Because composite decking products are so durable and impervious to rot, they have a much longer lifespan than wood decks. Specialty composite materials also include Rice Hull Composite decking which is a combination of salt, rice husks, and mineral oil. This decking material is 100% recyclable and is gaining in popularity.
General PVC decking is composed entirely of polyvinyl chloride and contains no wood. PVC decking is a more expensive option in the decking industry, but it provides significant fade and stain resistance and lower maintenance requirements compared to other products.
Mineral-Based Premium Decking
Deckorators® mineral-based composite (MBC) decking is the strongest decking in the world, and one of the most stable options on the market. It is made of a blend of advanced plastic polymers and durable minerals, combined and then stretched (pull extruded).
Zuri® Premium Decking
Zuri® Decking is a premium brand of PVC decking made by Royal Building Solutions. It is quite different from other PVC-type products in that the decking boards have three layers and are similar to laminate as they have a photo-realistic print that looks like real wood grain on the surface. That print is covered by a layer of co-extruded clear acrylic while the core is made from a PVC substrate.
