Vinyl Decking is a reliable, low maintenance, weather resistant, pest resistant, and highly durable alternative to traditional wood decks.
Both hollow and solid vinyl is used for decking, with solid products providing a similar appearance to natural wood.
The benefits of Vinyl Decks include:
- Highly customizable with various colors and styles
- Low maintenance and easily cleaned
- Will not splinter or warp
- Lower cost over the lifespan of the deck
Composite Decking combines the beauty of real wood with the performance of modern decks.
Composite Decking is made of materials such as ground-up wood, shredded recycled plastic, and recycled fibers. This material creates a strong finished product that comes with a pre-finished surface.
Benefits of Composite Decks:
- Durable and long lasting
- Require little maintenance and easily washable
- Closely resemble appearance of real wooden decks
- Environmentally friendly- Every 10 square feet of composite deck contains nearly 3,000 recycled plastic shopping bags or 1,100 milk jugs
Wood Decking is the most popular type of deck because of the classic and natural beauty of wood. With various types of wood, different colors and designs can be created to make your deck one of a kind.
Benefits of Wood Decks:
- Very durable when regularly maintained
- Lower material cost than other decks
- Highly customizable
- Can be natural wood, stained, or painted
Decks tend to sustain normal wear and tear over time while being exposed to high and low temperatures and various seasonal elements. With proper maintenance, you should be able to enjoy your new deck for many years. PROTECH Home Improvements can inspect and evaluate your deck and advise if we can repair it or if it needs a new installation.
Upon hiring PROTECH Home Improvements to repair your deck, we will:
- Check for any loosened nails, and reinstall or replace them with dipped galvanized or stainless steel screws that are made to withstand the elements.
- Reinforce loose deck and stair railings, sand splintered areas, and plane raised board edges smooth. We’ll also replace rotted or cupped deck boards.
- Check that the deck, especially a high one, has not pulled away from the house. The point of connection, the ledger board, should be securely fastened to the house framing.
- Clean debris accumulations from between deck boards. Doing so will promote better drainage, stop rot, and reduce mildew.
- Clean decking with a biodegradable detergent and a pressure washer. We will set the pressure low enough to avoid any splintering of the decking surface.
- Refinish wood decking with semi-transparent or solid stains, or with deck or porch paint. Note: This doesn’t need to be done every year. Every two or three years is fine.
- Prune or remove excess vegetation that’s growing around the deck to promote better air circulation and prevent the growth of mold and mildew.
