We all want a nice house and show piece for our friends to envy, but at what cost?
If you haven't looked into the new products and materials for decks then it's time to. I think my favorite thing about composite materials like Azek for example is that it is great for the forests and the endangered species being threatened by deforestation. People need to start caring more about the environment, people, and animals effected by those cutting down trees in Africa, Brazil and Asia so they can have a nice long lasting deck. Really!!?
The good news is the new composite pvc materials look GREAT and don't require maintenance.Luckily many of the highend homeowners and deck builders are starting to push pvc decking more and more. There are many manufactuers who make similar products but I know the Azek material can be manipulated and milled just like and sometimes better than wood.
Please look into using this material before you choose an exotic hardwood.
