I am going to try to get some plastic decking put in at my house in the near future, because I am tired of dealing with all of the hassles that are associated with having a wooden deck. In particular, I am interested in seeing some prices for having Timberteck plastic decking. I would imagine that it is probably more expensive than wood, but at the same time, I know that it is going to last longer. I have had to have my deck replaced twice in the last 30 years, and I have also had to do a lot of work to keep it from needing to be replaced even more often. I have stained the wood every couple of years, to protect it and keep the weather from impacting it as much.
The good thing about plastic is that it does not rot. Or well, I suppose it does technically biodegrade but if I remember correctly, I believe that it takes like ten thousands years for it to do so. So I don’t think I would have anything to worry about with that. I definitely don’t plan to live in this house for 10,000 years, and I’ll be lucky if I live in it for another 20 years. Anyway, I just want to make sure that the next deck I get is going to last and that I won’t have to do any work to keep it in good condition.
So that is why my best option seems far and away to be my best option at the moment, but I am going to try to do some more research to make sure that I am right about that, before I make a final decision. I also want to get a quote for how much it is going to cost.
