Our team of experts strongly recommends composite material for any uncovered deck built in North Carolina. Even the best grade of treated wood struggles to maintain integrity with the harsh North Carolina weather patterns. That, coupled with the constraints the EPA has put on deck stains, essentially making them weaker, maintaining a wood deck has become a yearly (at longest span) maintenance issue. Lumber companies only warranty against rot and insect infestation. There is no warranty for cracked boards (called checking), warped, twisted, or splintered boards.
Given the climate of North Carolina, we highly recommend Timbertech / Azek composite decking materials for decks, porches, and railings, and specialize in installing this material. No matter the type of home, backyard or specialized requirements, our team will work with you from start to finish to make sure you are happy with the final product!
We look forward to working with you in designing and installing the deck of your dreams. If you have any questions or want you an estimate, you can call Setting Sun Patios & Decks at 919-272-0050. You can also get in touch with us by filling out this contact us form.
