More and more homeowners are looking to fiberglass to meet their decking needs, but the question you might be thinking is “why?” There are a number of different reasons for this shift; some of the biggest include the durability and overall look a fiber deck brings to a residential property.
Classic wood and metal decks come with a number of headaches you probably never thought about when you first had it installed. Wood requires a lot of maintenance to keep it looking its best–as well as ensuring it remains structurally sound–which can turn your relaxation spot into a total chore. It also can easily succumb to the wear and tear caused by Mother Nature.
Metal decks, on the other hand, are very conductive and just as prone to weather damage. So while you may not have to worry about staining or painting one of these decks, you will have to work overtime to keep it looking good.
Fiberglass delivers all of the beauty of a wood or steel deck, but removes all of the negatives. Some of the different benefits you can expect from a fiber deck include:
- Stronger Than Steel Pound for Pound
- Will Not Warp, Rock, Crack, or Peel
- Weatherproof & Waterproof
- Chemical Resistant
- Very Easy to Clean & Maintain
- Doesn’t Require Any Staining or Painting
