What's The Best Decking Type For You?

The optimal decking choice for you depends on your desired aesthetics, the level of maintenance you’re willing to undertake, and your budget constraints.

Wood decking is the most common choice for homeowners due to its lower price point and natural feel. If you’ve ever been on a composite deck you know that you can immediately tell whether it is wood or composite because of its unnatural, plastic feel. The downside to a wood deck is the maintenance that is required to keep it looking new. every 2-5 years you will need to sand, seal, stain, and paint your deck if you want to keep it in a good condition.

If you would rather a maintenance free option, then composite or vinyl may be the right choice for you! Composite can be anywhere from 2 to 4 times the cost of a wood deck, however you will not need to anywhere near as much time or money for maintenance. It is also more resistant to the freezing cold weather in Calgary, and has a longer lifespan.

Vinyl decking is better than both composite and wood in almost every way. It is easier to install which reduces labor costs,  comes in many different beautiful colours, is more scratch and fade resitant, is fully waterproof, and the easiest to replace at the end of its lifespan.
