Many homeowners who are considering adding a deck or patio to their outdoor entertainment space debate between natural wood or artificial materials. A wood deck is often prized for its warmth and natural feel. However, wood decks often require an increasing amount of annual maintenance.

Here at Family Fence in Utah, we have been helping families design the deck of their dreams since 2012. Our representatives can work with you to capture your vision and help you understand your material options. We are not directly affiliated with any single manufacturer and this allows us to present options without bias.

Capped polymer decks have grown in popularity in recent years. They are prized for their ability to mimic the appearance of natural wood while also requiring minimal maintenance.

Also known as PVC decking, capped polymer resists the effects of seasonal weather and photodegradation. It also has a reputation for staying cooler than other competitive materials, which can be a factor for pets, and people who walk barefoot. It also does not splinter with age as natural wood is often prone to do.

Capped polymer’s long lifespan helps maximize its value, which can help increase the value of your home.

If you own a home in Utah, and you are considering adding a high-quality deck to your home, we invite you to call 801-836-2841 to speak to one of the representatives at Family Fence.
