While traditional decks are made of wood, a new product, composite, that is environmentally friendly and needs almost no maintenance.  Use these pros and cons to help decide what material to use for your Halifax deck.

Maurice Meagher's insight:

The Pros and Cons of Composite Decking vs Wood Decking


For many years, Halifax homeowners used only locally available wood to build their decks, porches and outdoor structures.  We still use pressure-treated wood, or Western red Cedar on approximately 60% of the decks, and outdoor structures that we build.  There are, however many different material selections available now as a building owner, or homeowner. Composite, or low maintenance decking, and railing has become very popular over the last decade. Use these pros and cons to help decide what material to use for your Halifax deck.
