Why Azek vinyl decking?
So why do we use Azek vinyl decking over other kinds of decking?
Azek vinyl decking will last a long time and is environmentally friendly. It will not warp or crack, unlike other kinds of decking. Vinyl decking will never rot, unlike wood. Azek vinyl decking is stain-resistant, so you can use substances like ketchup, cooking oil and red wine on a vinyl deck and not worry about harming its surface,
Azek is also scratch resistant, so moving your patio furniture around on it won’t do any damage. It will not split because of how it is installed, with fasteners placed close to the edge. Azek vinyl decking comes in a wide variety of colors, from the warm tones of the Arbor collection to the earth tones of the Terra collection to the soft colors of the Harvest collection.
When should you replace your deck?
So how do you know when it’s time to replace your deck? Here are some signs it’s time to replace your deck:
It violates safety codes
Your deck is so old that it violates Pennsylvania’s safety codes. Talk with the experts at Zephyr Thomas to see if this is the case. If people or pets are accidentally hurting themselves because of your decrepit deck, it’s probably time to replace it. Hazards such as nails or screws that protrude and splinters can be dangerous.
It’s covered in stains and marks
If your wooden deck is covered in stains and other marks, this is a sign that substances may have eaten through the deck’s protective sealant, which can cause peeling and rot.
There are broken boards
If boards are broken, this can also be a big hazard. Be sure to get them fixed promptly, even if your deck does not get a lot of traffic, and think about replacing it.
There are signs of dry rot
If you can tell that your deck is undergoing dry rot, it’s time to evaluate it for replacement. You can tell that dry rot is occurring if there is fungal growth, if the boards are shrinking, or if you can see dark stains or detect a musty odor.
If you think it may be time to replace your deck, contact the experts at Zephyr Thomas. We will go through the whole process with you, from the planning stages to completion.
