Every day I get this question from Customers.
Should I go With Real Wood / Hard Wood or Composite for My Deck or Dock?
This is really a personal preference, which one should compare. One of the most popular brands of composite is TREX www.trex.com and to be honest they have come out with some new beautiful designs that look just like Tropical Hardwoods and the best part is that there is no maintenance required after installed. On the other hand growing up around wood, I just love the feel of real wood. But the decision for even myself is getting harder with the new looks.
All I can say is hold a piece of each in your hand and think about the maintenance you will be doing or not wnating to do. It’s a personal choice to consider and also an environmental one.
