The average wood deck lasts 10-15 years and has a return on investment of roughly 80% in Severna Park, Maryland, according to Remodeling Magazine’s annual Cost vs. Value report. But, as they say, all good things must come to an end. Eventually you will need to replace or re-deck your once proud wood deck. When this is the case, you have one very important decision to make: wood or composite?
The Benefits of Composite, AZEK Decks
In case you are on the fence, here are just a few benefits of AZEK decks:
AZEK Decks are Low Maintenance
When it comes to wood decks, annual maintenance is a must: cleaning, sanding, staining, repeat. Composite decks, like AZEK, meanwhile, are what we call low maintenance. These decks are designed to last without much effort on your part. No sanding. No staining. And just the occasional cleaning to help bring out the deck’s original luster.
AZEK Decks are Durable
Composite materials will not weather, warp, or rot, like wood. This is especially nice in Severna Park, where rain (and snow) is almost always in the forecast. Composite materials are also resistant to insects, such as termites.
AZEK Decks are Safe
Composite decks will not splinter, meaning no more “ouhies.” Most composite decks are also slip resistant.
AZEK Decks Increase Home Value
While composite decks may not have the same return on investment (roughly 62.8%) as wood decks, they will increase your home value by just as much. And for what these decks lack in ROI, they certainly make up for in maintenance costs, or a lack thereof.
And So Much More!
