If you’re thinking about adding a new deck or upgrading the deck you already have in the Riverchase subdivision of Hoover, Alabama, we think that you might find this interesting.
The family living in this house had an aging wooden deck that needed to come down. The bones of the original deck structure had become compromised over time. In short, the deck that was there needed to be removed, so that is where our Birmingham deck expert team started.
Replacing An Aged Wood Deck With A TimberTech Synthetic Composite Decking Material Is A Smart Decision For Many Reasons
As adding a new outdoor living space to your home is all about designing a space for leisure enjoyment and relaxation, adding a deck out of wood may actually be counterintuitive in regards to deck the maintenance they require.
While wood deck owners are going through the paces of upkeep to ensure the longevity and appearance of their deck, by choosing TimberTech, you’ll be thinking about new ways to enjoy your carefree deck structure instead.
1. Zero Maintenance: If you have a broom or a garden hose, you’re in business. TimberTech decking makes use of capped composite and polymer boards. These boards require little to no maintenance. All you have to do is wash the boards once in a while, and that’s it. No staining, cleaners, or finishes are needed.
2. Long Lifespan: TimberTech decking has a life of more than 30 years. In the case of more advanced varieties such as TimberTech AZEK decking, the boards come with a limited lifetime warranty. All TimberTech boards also have a warranty against color fading or staining for more than 30 years. Such extensive warranties are sadly unthinkable in the case of traditional woods.
3. Earth Smart: As we continue to learn more about the importance of reducing our collective carbon footprint and preserving our natural resources, synthetic composites become a better choice. Whereas hardwood decking usually uses wood from 1.25 trees for a single deck, TimberTech boards are meticulously crafted from recycled woods and plastics that present no damage to additional trees.
Designing A New Composite Deck For A Long Life – Of Both The Structure And The Homeowners
As you can see, this new low maintenance deck only has 3 steps from lawn to deck surface. This minimal, low-to-the-ground rise with wrap around steps will serve the homeowners well as they advance in years. You could think of it as the outdoor living equivalent to a one story ranch style home, if you will.
Since it is low-to-grade deck design, no railing was needed. Riser lights were also installed within the steps to provide safety and security illumination after sunset. We chose to use smart lights so they can be controlled by the homeowner’s phone or digital device.
