Composite Decks – Breckenridge Deck Builder
We love wood decks, but not homeowners want to commit to the long-term maintenance required to care for wood decking. Luckily, we have the perfect solution – composite decking. Composite is the perfect solution!
What is Composite Decking?
Composite decking is a blend of plastics and wood fibers. The wood fibers can be made from wood products – wood chips to sawdust. The plastic component of composite decking often comes from recycled plastic to make composite decking environmentally friendly.
Through the years, composite decking has become more sophisticated with deck boards being produced to be hardier, with natural surface patterning to look like real wood and a wide variety of colors.
Composite decking has so many advantages. It will not splinter, warp, or breakdown in the way wood does. It comes with long warranties – withstands the usage by pets, kids, and the harsh weather conditions we have in the Rocky Mountains. Composite decks won’t require power washing, staining or painting the way wood does.
Composite decking and durability
Along with the beauty of composite decking – the detailed surfaces, color and texture varieties, these composite decking boards are far more resilient. Outstanding UV protection prevents fading through the years. Wood decks to lose their original color over time whereas composite can look like wood, but they don’t have the downside of wood’s weaknesses. Composite decking will resist the elements in Breckenridge (and Summit County), and the features are important for building a long-lasting deck that is capable of years and years of enjoyment.

How big should a deck be? Some say that a deck should be no larger than twenty percent. But if your home is in Breckenridge you will be spend plenty of time outdoors.
2. Take the Inside Outside
Its hard to beat spending time with family and friends. An outdoor kitchen and dining areas while looking at the local ski resorts is hard to beat.
3. Design to Maximize the Views
Does your Breckenridge home have views of the Ten Mile Range, Lake Dillon or Breckenridge and Breckenridge ski resorts? Make sure your deck should be designed to maximize the spectacular views.
4. Deck Railings
With your deck build setting you up for awesome views, be sure these views are impeded by railings that block the view. Look at railing options with thin balusters, wire or glass panels.
5. Balance Your Deck & Yard
Decks often connect your home’s interior space with your landscaped areas. Decks should blend with your home, but get creative and have their own freestanding design, providing unique living spaces.
