Designing a Custom Deck for Your Charlotte Home
We love Charlotte. We’ve been working with individuals and families in and around the Carolinas for years. That’s why we know there are some key factors you’ll want to consider before choosing a deck builder and starting on design. Factors like: What deck material is best for Charlotte’s climate? And, how do I want to enjoy my new deck? Grilling, hosting, or relaxing? Our team will walk through all of these necessary details to provide you with a design that meets your budget and desired functionality.
Selecting a Deck Material: Composite Decking vs. Wood Decking
The two most popular deck materials are composite decking and traditional wood decking. There are pros and cons to both options, and both can provide a great choice for building a custom deck in Charlotte.
Wood-alternative composite decking is engineered to replicate the look of natural wood but is actually made from a mixture of wood fiber and plastic. Composite decks are great for Charlotte homes because they’re easy to maintain, durable, and long-lasting. Homeowners who would rather spend more time enjoying their deck than maintaining it would do well with a composite material.
As mentioned above, composite decking is extremely durable and is designed to resist fading, staining, mold, mildew, and scratching. While composite deck brands can vary in characteristics, generally, they do not require a lot of upkeep. There’s no need to stain or paint composite, instead, you can choose from a variety of colors without ever having to worry about it rotting, cracking, splintering, or fading.
While composite decking is easy to maintain, it may not be ideal for Charlotte residents who want to feel authentic wood beneath their feet. Also, composite decking is typically more costly upfront than a wood decking alternative.
General things to consider when selecting composite decking are whether you’ll find value in the low maintenance and whether the aesthetic will compliment your home. If you do decide to go with a composite deck, MetroGreenscape recommends only the very best Trex composite decking for homes across Charlotte. Trex is the leading high-performance composite material in the industry and will create a deck that you can enjoy for many years to come.
Traditional Wood Decks
On the other hand, many Charlotte residents prefer the traditional and classic look of wooden decks. With a custom wood deck, homeowners have a lot of options to choose from. They can pick an exotic wood material, like ipe, or go with the popular treated pine option. The various stains and sealants that are used to treat wood decks offer a range of colors, giving you the ability to build a deck that will complement the overall aesthetic of your home and garden.
In addition to the authentic and warm characteristics of wood, wood decking materials are often pressure treated to prevent decay and damage from termites. It is durable, long-lasting, and can be more cost-effective. Custom wood decks are ideal for Charlotte homes because they do not get hot when exposed to long periods of sunlight. Plus, a custom wood deck will never go out of style. It can always be painted or stained to match any updates you make to your home or landscape.
The tradeoff for having a beautiful wood deck is that it requires more maintenance. Wood decking can eventually fade, splinter, or crack and must be regularly kept to remain a safe area for families to enjoy.
General things to consider when selecting traditional wood decking are whether you have the time and resources to maintain it and whether you desire a specific aesthetic to compliment your home. If traditional wood is the choice for you, you can trust our professionals to design a beautiful deck that the whole family will enjoy using.
