A good deck construction should have no effects whatsoever on your siding, roofing or any other part of your home. In fact, while the quality of installation and construction depends on how skilled your contractors are, your choice of deck materials can also play a critical role in how well the project turns out.
Engineered wood has been used in deck construction for decades, offering a wide variety of advantages for homeowners all across the country. Let our deck and siding specialists at Twin Cities Siding Professionals explain the benefits you can expect from this versatile material.
Strength and Durability
Engineered wood, also known as composite wood, is one of the top siding materials in the business for years but its use in deck construction has only become popular quite recently. This material is built to last, giving homeowners all the benefits of a wooden deck, but without the common problems. Engineered wood does not rot, warp, break, or crack, and it leaves no splinters so it’s the best choice for families with children and pets.
Low Maintenance Needs
Traditional wood decks provide a classic look that’s hard to beat, but they are also hard to keep. Wood is susceptible to a number of problems that make it one of the most high-maintenance materials there is. This is one of the problems that engineered wood and composite decks aim to address. The intrinsic durability of this material makes it resistant to the most frequent issues that have long plagued wooden structures.
As a deck construction and siding material, engineered wood does get rid of all the troubles its natural counterpart faces every year, but it does retain its advantages in terms of aesthetics. Composite decks are designed to mimic the beauty and natural wood grain texture of wooden building materials, giving you all the benefits of wood without any of its problems.
