Right before spring starts, my company always gets a lot of calls from homeowners about building new decks. When the conversation comes to the question of what materials to use, it comes down to one question: wood or composite?


The first thing to know about choosing the best deck material is that all decks use treated lumber for the framing, which is the structural part of the deck that you don't usually see unless you are underneath it. So the decision process usually involves only the materials that will make up the decking surface and railings.
You have two main categories of deck materials to choose from: natural wood or man made products – but there are lots of options within each of these categories. The most popular wood products are treated lumber and cedar. Other species of wood such as redwood and hardwoods like Ipe, jutoba and tigerwood are also used on decks, but not nearly as often. Man made deck material products include composites, PVC and vinyl from manufacturers such as Trex, Fiberon, TimberTech and Azek.
The majority of decks built today are made of wood. The main reason people choose wood is for the initial cost savings. The main reason people choose composite or man-made deck materials is for the low maintenance required.
So what deck material is best for you? There are numerous factors to evaluate before making a decision. You will need to ask questions like: How will the deck be used? Is it in a shaded area or a sunny one? How long do you plan to live in your home? Do you plan on doing your own deck maintenance or hiring a company to do it for you? As you can see, the questions are endless. Like most deck builders, I can not recommend the right deck material without talking to you and answering these questions first.

Cost comparison of building materials for decks, including treated lumber, cedar, composite and PVC

Deck Materials Cost for Farmington, Michigan

Factoring in wood maintenance costs

Although the installation price for a composite is definitely going to be more than wood, the actual cost over time is a good deal closer. This is because wood decks require more maintenance. If you're willing to do the resealing and repairs yourself, a wood deck will still be cheaper, but if you are going to hire someone then it would be worthwhile to factor that future cost into your decision at the time when the deck is being installed.
The same size treated lumber or cedar deck mentioned above costs $700 to stain the first year. You will need to stain it every two years thereafter. A stripping and sanding will be required every six years before you perform the annual deck stain, which will cost about $900 total.
If you are maintaining your wood deck properly and hiring professionals to do so, I would say that by the end of year eleven you will have spent more than $4,600 on maintenance, and you will still have a wood deck that may crack or splinter, whereas a deck with man-made materials will require little regular maintenance.
Although I tend to recommend composite decks, you need to decide for yourself what fits best for your home and situation. The best way to do that is to talk with a knowledgeable deck building professional that can ask you the right questions and help you make the best decision. Just be honest with yourself from the start about whether you are going to do the maintenance yourself.

Building decks in the fall and save Farmington, Michigan money

One of the primary concerns our customers express against fall construction is the effect the weather will have on a new deck and the materials used on the project. We always assure them that the materials are manufactured for this very purpose. Treated lumber, along with composite materials, are conditioned and fabricated to withstand extreme hot and cold temperatures, moisture and humidity, and rainy and dry seasons. The transition from summer into autumn is actually an ideal time to begin building your deck. Here's why:

1. Shorter wait time

Spring tends to be the busiest season for deck construction. Farmington, Michigan homeowners are excited to finally end their hibernation indoors and start living outside again. The cold Farmington, Michigan weather yields to the warmer, and everyone starts thinking the same thing - "Let’s move our lives outdoors again!" Our phones at the office start ringing off the hook, which is a wonderful problem to have, but this often results in longer wait times for our customers. The lead time tends to be longer as the schedule fills up quickly. In the fall, most Farmington, Michigan homeowners are mentally shifting gears to start spending time indoors once again. One advantage to building your deck in the fall is that you will have your project completed a lot sooner than in the spring or summer. There is a shorter wait time for each project. Plus, once winter passes, your deck will be ready to be used as soon as the first warm spring day arrives. Instead of beginning the project at this point, it'll already be completed and you'll be able to focus on landscaping and furnishing your new outdoor area.

2. Ground conditions

Another advantage to fall deck construction is that the ground and conditions are more favorable to yards and landscaping. When dealing with the elements, the effects of the entire construction process are often unpredictable as to how much disruption will occur to existing landscaping and turf. Although we always try to be as minimally invasive as possible throughout our construction process, heavier rains lead to muddier soil and turf. Fall weather is typically much drier, and plants and grass tend to be more resilient to a bit of disruption in the fall.

3. Late season specials

Whether you're building your own deck or hiring a contractor, you can save some money by building in the fall. Contractors are usually more willing to negotiate on pricing, and it's not uncommon to find sales on lumber and building materials at this time.

4. Fall weather

Another reason fall is a great time to build is simply because the weather is gorgeous. The cooler, crisp weather is the perfect time to gather around a firepit on a deck with friends. The comfortable range of temperatures from fifty to seventy-five allows for ample outdoor time. In comparison to the heat of summer and the wetness and rain associated with spring, fall is perfect for outdoor enjoyment. Many of our customers enjoy this time of year to host their gatherings and barbecues. There are so many reasons why fall is a favorite season for deck construction. From pricing, to weather conditions, to building process, to having your outdoor area ready to go in the spring ... the possibilities are endless.

Which decking material to choose?

Probably the most difficult decision to make when building a deck is what type of decking to use. All three choices 5/4 x 6-in. radius-edged cedar, pressure treated and composite decking share similarities. They are all rot resistant to varying degrees, require 16 inch joist spacing for proper support, bleach out to a silvery gray, and can all be cut and installed using conventional tools and fasteners.
 The pros and cons of cedar decking

The pros and cons of cedar decking

If the natural look of wood is tops on your list, use cedar. The heartwood of the tree (the deeper colored red part, not the white sap part) is rot resistant. Cedar does not readily absorb moisture and since moisture is what creates twisting and splitting, cedar decking tends to lie flat and straight. Most carpenters figure a lifespan of 15 to 20 years for cedar deck boards, but it can deteriorate faster when used for ground level decks and for shaded decks that are slow to dry out. To retain the color, you have to clean it and re-seal it every year or two, and even then it is a losing battle. I have never seen a 10 year old cedar deck that still had that warm, rich look of new wood. Cedar is also soft; when used for stairs or for decks where furniture gets dragged around a lot, the edges in particular can get beat up. Finally, the cost of the cedar is moderate, more than pressure treated but somewhat less than composite.

The pros and cons of pressure-treated decking

If economy and longevity are your bag, go with pressure-treated wood. You can stain it, it's hard enough to resist abuse, and many brands carry a lifetime (though limited) warranty. But beware, not all treated woods are created equal. The standard treated decking at my local lumberyard costs less than cedar. But inexpensive treated wood is often full of moisture and will shrink unevenly and twist when it dries. The only reason homeowners build a deck of pressure treated or womanized lumber is price alone. They are great for rental properties or walk paths. One homeowner told me, Yeah, my treated deck may last forever but it is going to look BAD forever too and feel like a dirt road. If you have to purchase treated lumber we suggest you buy choice or premium treated boards. At about 40 cents more per linear foot, you will pay more, but the boards have fewer knots and straighter grain. Since many of the higher grade choices are kiln dried both before and after pressure treatment, they have less tendency to warp. The best use of Pressure treated lumber is for framing on a deck.

Trex Deck in Farmington, Michigan

Custom Deck Resurfacing Farmington, Michigan

As this couple neared retirement, one of their concerns was the constant maintenance their deck required. They had an existing deck that seemed structurally sound, but the redwood decking and railing was now showing signs of wear and tear. The sun's UV rays had done their damage over the years and the grain was starting to lift in many areas. Located in Farmington, Michigan , this deck had been punished by the winters and moisture and was also showing signs of decay in certain areas. Having used the deck often, the couple liked the layout and size of this deck. It was only 15 years old and was well designed to flow with the house and backyard. During our first consultation we determined that the deck was structurally sound and would be a good candidate for area resurfacing. They wanted to add a little area by the staircase that would lead to the patio - other than that the original deck design stayed the same. This time around the couple decided that they would invest in a Trex Transcends low-maintenance deck. Since one of their primary goals was to prepare their backyard for retirement, low maintenance decking was the natural choice. We striped down all the decking, railings, and fascia, and the composite decking was installed with hidden fasteners, our standard installation, for a smooth and seamless look. For safety and mood lighting they added a low-voltage lighting package that finished this deck off with a glow. It was an incredible transformation from a solid, old deck that was not being used, to a new, revived structure that became the main hub of summer weekends.

The pros and cons of composite decking

If near zero maintenance is your goal, buy composite decking. Most is made from recycled plastic and wood chips or sawdust. It is more expensive than cedar, but once it is down, it will not rot, splinter or twist. You can even stain most types after four to six months that are not a capped composite. Since the material is defect free, you can use every inch. Maintenance involves spraying it off with a hose. Some people do not like the look of the stuff and it is cool or hot on bare feet. But if you want to relax on your deck instead of work on it, bite the bullet and spend the extra cash, a lot of extra cash!
