Most Nashville-area homeowners don’t want to stain or seal their deck every year and in fact, if they use low-maintenance decking, they never have to. There are a variety of beautiful, high-quality synthetic decking materials that look very similar to wood but never require staining, sanding or any aspect of annual maintenance. The only maintenance involved in owning a low-maintenance deck is using a little sponge and water cleanup to remove common outdoor messes.
While you will still need to wipe up anything (such as ketchup, wine, oils, etc) that falls on the boards, you can be confident in the protection these boards provide. Choosing a low-maintenance synthetic material also means an end to the worry about the maladies that wood decking suffer such as splitting, splintering, cupping, rotting, and decay from insects or mold. That’s a lot of peace of mind in addition to a lot more time that can be spent relaxing.

The first and most important thing to do is to choose a company with a lot of experience working with synthetic decking. This is important for more than one reason. First, if someone has worked with a lot of different boards and colors, they can really help match what you’re looking for with the correct product to meet your needs. It’s also important to use a deck builder that’s experienced working with various brands because some of the warranties can be voided if the materials are not built using particular methods. An experienced builder like Archadeck of Nashville will make sure these and any other requirements are met.
