Decks & Porches Contractors Charleston SC | Custom decks builder Charleston SC
With having such lovely weather here in Charleston South Carolina for most of the year outdoor space is paramount to home ownership, both for personal enjoyment and return on investment upon resale. Custom decks can be built when the plan is properly drafted, and the design is done by a professional landscape architect.
Most decks and porches for affordability purposes are built using pressure treated pine. This material holds up well enough to weather, termites, as well as wear and tear while also being most affordable. Meanwhile higher end consumers prefer the more maintenance free, rot free, splinter free, and somewhat more visually appealing looks of synthetic materials like composite lumber, and ipe wood (extreme dense hardwood). These options bare in mind will be about 3 times the cost of traditional treated pine. Composite decking materials are made of a polymer plastic, fiber, wood mix (saw dust), and the appeal that they have and come in all different color and wood variations. If you’re an environmentally conscience homeowner then this material is also the best option as it’s made from recycled plastics – ( Every 20 feet of decking contains about 30 pounds of material that would have ended up in a landfill). Trex, the first and largest of the composite manufacturers, recycles 6 million pounds of plastic each year. LEARN MORE HERE.
