Composite Decks

Composite (Trex) Deck Builder

Serving Lexington & Central Kentucky

Composite (Trex) Decks require much less maintenance work than wood

​Designed with lasting beauty, incredible durability and easy maintenance, there’s no compromising with high-performance composite decking. Everyone loves the natural look of wood but hates all the painting, staining and sealing. Wood decks of all types, including pressure-treated wood, ipe, cedar or redwood, require extensive upkeep. Composite Decking (Trex) was designed with the beauty of wood decking, but not all the maintenance. High-performance, eco-friendly composite boards withstand years of sun, sleet and snow, keeping their rich color. So when comparing composite decking vs. wood, there’s no competition as to which decking material is best.

Cost Comparison

For most Lexington & Central KY homeowners, hiring a deck builder to replace or to add a new deck to their property is a significant investment and one that they expect to pay dividends in terms of outdoor enjoyment with family and friends for many years to come. And while it’s true that composite decks cost more to build than a pressure treated deck, the price gap between the two options long term is much closer than you might expect. Especially when you calculate the cost of yearly maintenance and repair. 

Designed to deliver incredible durability, strength and a multitude of finishes, today’s composite decking options deliver the aesthetic beauty of wood – without the hassles of continuous maintenance.  Take a closer look at the total cost of building a deck with composite decking vs pressure treated wood. If the material cost to build a deck entirely with pressure treated wood is $5,000, a homeowner in the Lexington & Central Kentucky area can expect to pay a qualified deck builder to build a composite deck of the same size $9,000 or more.

However, it’s important for homeowner’s to also understand that the labor a deck  builder is the same for wood vs composite yet the cost of the composite decking project is essentially fixed for as long as they own the home. On the other hand, the wood deck will require regular, ongoing maintenance to keep it looking great and feeling safe underfoot.  Here in Lexington & Central Kentucky, with our changing seasons filled with falling leaves, freezing temps and scorching summers, a pressure treated wood deck will require an estimated total of 20 hours of effort – each year – to keep it clean and safe to use. A composite (Trex) deck designed to be resistant to mold and mildew growth may require less than 2 hours a year to clean.

No matter how ambitious your plans are, adding a custom designed deck is a great way to enhance the value of your Lexington Kentucky home and expand your living space to include new horizons. Here are some great reasons why you should consider adding a deck to your Lexington Kentucky home.
