You Deserve An Upgrade!
The benefits of decking are numerous. Residential decking is a great way to add more living space and value to your home. By installing outdoor decks, patios, and balconies, you can convert unusable space into usable square footage, increasing the size of your property and giving it a new level of appeal. In addition to adding a living area, these additions allow you to enjoy all four seasons with year-round enjoyment that includes an exuberant backyard for recreation or restful relaxation.
Get Exactly What You Want
With a variety of materials to choose from, we want to make sure you pick the decking that meets your needs.
Wooden decks are the most common material of decks. It is durable and provides natural beauty - thanks to variation in color and grain patterning. There are many benefits of wooden decks over other types, especially when it comes to maintenance.
Composite decking is made from recycled wood, plastic, and even rubber. It offers a great alternative to expensive decks as it requires minimal maintenance and lasts longer than natural wood. They are also water-resistant and do not rot when they get wet.
They come from preserved logs with chemicals to protect them against the elements (moisture and insects). This increased protection makes it more expensive than natural wood. Pressure-treated wood is durable but needs more work to prepare for installation.
Decks are ideal places where families come together for social interactions and entertaining guests. Having a decking installed will improve the value of your property. They offer a level space outside a house where people can sit and enjoy the day without standing up all the time.
Decks also provide an excellent view as they come with spacious flooring ideal for walking around. The best thing is they allow you to entertain your guests without worrying about how they will move around in your home, as decks provide extra spaces to accommodate them and to keep away from crowded areas inside your home.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is the Best Decking?
There is no definitive answer to this question as it depends on personal preferences and what you are looking for in decking material. Some people prefer the natural look and feel of wood, while others prefer the durability of plastic or composite materials. Ultimately, the best decking for you will depend on your individual needs and budget. OrangeBlue offers a wide variety of decking materials to choose from, so you can find the perfect one for your home.
How Long Will Decking Last?
Decking will last anywhere from 10 to 25 years, but it's important to keep up with maintenance and repairs in order to extend its life. Periodic cleaning and staining will help to protect the wood and keep it looking its best.
What Are the Disadvantages of Composite Decking?
The disadvantages of composite decking are that it can be difficult to repair and fade over time. Composite decking is also more expensive than traditional wood decking.
Wood decking is long-lasting, but the disadvantages require regular cleaning with soap and water to remove algae growth, mold, and mildew.
There are many options for composites, including recycled plastics. Before choosing a particular type of plastic composite, consider what will work best in your climate. Composite decking typically comes finished or unfinished.
What Is the Longest Lasting Deck Material?
The longest-lasting deck material is pressure-treated wood. In studies, it has shown to be the only product that lasts considerably longer than the others. Decks installed with pressure-treated wood have lasted an average of 17 years without major maintenance, and these decks are now beginning to approach about 100 years in residential use. Unfortunately, pressure-treated wood does have its downfalls. After 10-15 years, the boards will naturally begin to twist and warp unless they are trimmed regularly. Also, because these manufactured materials are made from chemicals, there is a chance of adverse reactions if you refinish the deck yourself. You may want to make sure you don't have any allergies or sensitivities to the chemicals before embarking on a project of this kind.
