At Bob Riddick Home Services, we pride ourselves on offering only the highest quality residential and commercial pool and patio decking and dock products to our customers, which is why we offer composite decking from industry leaders like Trex®, Fiberon® and WOLF PVC Decking. We have the in-depth knowledge and wide selection to recommend and install the right decking materials for your particular needs.
While we are fully equipped to install natural wood decks and love the natural quality they provide, there are several advantages to opting for composite decking over real wood. Composite decking is a long-term solution that alleviates the added maintenance of wood. Wood decking has a traditional, natural charm but to maintain that appeal it needs continual upkeep and only has a lifespan of around 10 years, especially in hot, humid, and frequently stormy climates.
Regardless of whether you opt for composite or wood decking, you’re making an eco-friendly decision because we only align ourselves with manufacturers who maintain a certain level of environmental responsibility. Many manufacturers of composite decking utilize recycled materials. These manufacturers don’t contribute to deforestation and keep millions of pounds of wood and plastic waste out of landfills each and every year. The wood producers we use practice sustainable forestry and work in conjunction with the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® to maintain wildlife habitat, water quality and soil conservation as well as minimize waste and promote air and water quality.
Composite Decking Advantages:
Wide variety of grain patterns
Building and fire code compliant
Commercial and residential warranties available
Composite Decking Disadvantages:
Low upfront cost
Broader array of matching components
