The cost of building a deck varies significantly based on factors including size, materials, design complexity, site conditions, and local regulations. Larger decks, complex designs, and challenging site conditions increase the cost due to the need for more materials and labor.

Composite decking is durable, requires minimal maintenance, and is resistant to rot, mold, and insects. However, it can be more expensive than natural wood initially, but it requires less maintenance over time.

Composite decks are known for their longevity, often lasting 25-30 years or more with proper care, which is significantly longer than traditional wood decks. Premium materials have warranties up to 50 years.

We use Trex decking because of its exceptional durability, low maintenance requirements, wide range of colors and finishes, its unrivaled warranties, and how it is cost-effective over time due to fewer maintenance costs.

The primary benefits of MoistureShield decking include its durability and resistance to rot, decay, and moisture. This is due to the proprietary Solid Core manufacturing process that ensures protection against environmental elements and everyday accidents.

We use the most durable materials to ensure the longevity of your pool deck, including high-quality pressure-treated lumber for the framing and composite decking from trusted brands like Trex and MoistureShield. It is crucial to use premium materials for your safety.

MoistureShield’s CoolDeck technology is designed to reduce heat absorption, making the deck boards cooler to the touch even in direct sunlight. This is particularly beneficial for pool decks, where comfort and safety are important. CoolDeck technology helps to minimize heat transfer, providing a more comfortable surface for bare feet and reducing the risk of heat-related discomfort during the hot summer months. This innovative feature makes MoistureShield an ideal choice for enhancing the poolside experience, ensuring both durability and comfort around water environments.
