Have you been wondering why lumber prices are so high? As more people spend time at home during the pandemic, they want their property to be as desirable and functional as possible. Consequently, many homeowners have decided to perform outdoor renovations that they have been putting off for years. At the beginning of the pandemic, lumber mills, warehouses, and distributors were shut down to comply with guidelines, causing a lumber shortage. The high consumer demand and lumber shortage together have resulted in a surge in lumber prices.
In the past, it would have cost much less to build a pressure-treated wood deck than a composite deck. Now, with the natural wood price surge, the two are comparable in cost. Currently, the cost of composite hasn’t been impacted as much by the pandemic. If you’d like to build a deck this winter, we recommend choosing composite, low-maintenance decking materials.
What are the benefits of building with composite deck materials this winter?
Building a composite deck is an investment that you can enjoy for decades. There’s no need for a stain or sealant year after year, and cleaning it is a breeze. To keep your low-maintenance deck looking as good as new, wash it regularly with soap, water, and a sponge. It’s that simple! If you’re relaxing on your composite deck in ten or twenty years, it will still look like it was just built yesterday.
