There are many fantastic reasons to choose composite decking and other synthetic materials for your decks and porches. But amongst all of those amazing benefits, the lifestyle benefits far outweigh everything else. No longer will you have to dedicate a couple of weekends per year to staining, painting or sealing, but every weekend can be spent on recreation, relaxation, and with life’s most important people.
By combining composite decking boards from AZEK, TimberTech, or Trex with other synthetic materials such as aluminum or PVC for posts, railings, trim, pergolas, and ceiling finishes, Oakville homeowners enjoy never having to stain, paint or seal any part of their outdoor space. The synthetic outdoor living materials we use will stay looking new for decades without costly and time-consuming refinishing. If surfaces become dirty, a quick spray with the garden hose will do the trick.
Low-maintenance decking is available in composite, PVC, and composite wrapped in PVC. It is the most requested decking material due to its beauty, longevity, low-maintenance, and lifetime value. Your deck or porch floor is the largest surface area of your outdoor living space, and simply choosing this will save you at least one weekend of annual maintenance every year. And with Oakville’s harsh winters, you’ll sleep easy knowing you’ve invested in a space that will last 25-30+ years without needing to be replaced or refinished.
Low-Maintenance Railings, Posts, and Trim
If you are choosing composite decking, we recommend you choose low-maintenance railings, posts, and trim to complete the low-maintenance lifestyle. We have many low-maintenance options such as aluminum railings, glass infill, aluminum wrapped posts, and PVC tongue and groove porch ceilings. You’ll enjoy the benefits of these choices for decades when you’re not painting your railings (if you’ve ever painted railings, you know how tedious of a project that can be.) In addition to the savings in time and energy for staining and sealing, you’ll enjoy how the materials complement your space with a clean, smooth finish. After all, good design all comes down to the details.
Low-Maintenance Outdoor Living Accessories
We often add gorgeous shade structures and other accessories to outdoor living spaces such as pergolas, arbors, privacy walls and more. While the traditional version of these items is often a wood product, we can provide low-maintenance, durable options for all of them. With an aluminum pergola, you won’t need to worry about staining or sealing the wood. You won’t need to worry about pests such as wasps and ants burrowing into the product. You’ll simply be able to enjoy the comfort your outdoor living accessory provides with just a simple wash down with a garden hose if it gets dirty.
If you’re interested in building a long-lasting, easy-to-own, impossible-not-to-love outdoor space, we urge you to consider composite decking and other low-maintenance materials for your project. As your neighbor is sweating his way through his bi-annual deck staining weekends, you’ll be kicking back with a glass of wine in your backyard retreat. We have fantastic relationships with many vendors, and our expert design team can transform these modern products into traditional designs as well as modern designs to fit your tastes.
