Upgraded Decking Materials Offer Enduring Quality & Beauty

ARA – Tackling your home improvement list this summer likely includes doing some work on your outdoor spaces. If replacing or updating a deck is your focus, it's wise to look into new products that help ensure your efforts will be enjoyed for many seasons to come.

Eighty-three percent of Americans say low-maintenance qualities are important when considering outdoor home improvement projects, according to a Trex Co. survey. Durable, hassle-free composite decks are more popular than ever among time-challenged homeowners because of their low-maintenance qualities. You might not know, however, that composite materials have evolved significantly since their introduction almost two decades ago.

"The newest generation of composite decking offers a superior combination of beauty and performance due to significant advances made in fade and stain resistance," said Adam Zambanini, vice president of marketing for Trex. "Today's composites look 'like new' for much longer – making them the perfect upgrade for both wood deck owners and homeowners who love their existing composite decks."

Following are four key attributes to look for when purchasing composite decking:

• Superior durability.

• Realistic colors and textures.

• Ultra-low maintenance.

• Strong warranties.

"Today's composite decking is proof that sometimes the best can get even better," said Zambanini. "It combines unprecedented performance and aesthetics – taking the outdoor living experience to a whole new level for homeowners."
