Color and Texture Varieties for Composite Decks in Falls Church, VA
Today’s composite or PVC decks in Falls Church, VA are less likely to fade, stain, or harbor mold and mildew. There is an ever-expanding variety of natural colors, some with variegated tones that mimic exotic hardwood grain patterns, and such an assortment of colors and textures that deck builders coined the term "deck fashion."
How do you select materials for composite or PVC decks in Falls Church, VA? There are many factors that enter the equation, but typically your choices are based on:
your home and landscape architectural style
decking surface preferences
fastener system selected
site variables, and
local building code and HOA requirements
Premium quality composite deck products are two to three times more expensive than pressure-treated (PT) wood but lasts two to three times longer with much less maintenance. Now, PT wood is used in the structural foundation of most decks due to its combined affordability, durability, and strength.
A competent deck contractor in Falls Church, VA will be licensed and insured, and know local building codes to advise your materials selection before they design composite decks in Falls Church, VA. Your deck builder will also be familiar with the latest advances in deck construction and design techniques. Many deck contractors will also have specialty certifications designating them to represent, use, or install certain composite deck products. Why is this important? For example, since each composite deck system has specific installation and fastening requirements, the warranty will be void if the manufacturer's installation instructions are not followed. It’s the little things that separate out the good deck contractors from those who really make the project enjoyable.
For anyone interested in the molecular level, synthetic materials used in constructing composite decks in Falls Church, VA, and all construction materials for that matter, are required by many local building authorities to have a valid Evaluation Service Report (ESR). These reports are issued by ICC-ES, a subsidiary of the International Code Council, a nonprofit code-compliance testing agency. They perform building-product evaluation services - technical evaluations of building products, components, methods, and materials.
For a complete list of composite decking ESRs visit the CSI and search Division 06 - Wood, Plastics, and Composites ICC-ES evaluation reports prove that products and systems are building code-compliant. They show the results of tests such as abrasion resistance, moisture absorption, tensile strength, fastener spacing, allowable spans and stresses, and more.
Before you select materials for composite decks in Falls Church, VA, gather product information, consider architectural elements, and review your technical and financial requirements with your deck contractor for a positive experience with composite decks in Falls Church, VA.
