Above Ground Pool Deck

You can choose from two types of composite decking, solid decking and hollow decking. When picking the type you would like to use, keep in mind the work you want to put into building your deck and the weather conditions in your area. Solid composite decking looks like real wood, however because its mass is greater than real wood it tends to expand more at extreme temperatures. It also is a great building material for above ground pool decks as it does not warp or expand over time from the pool water and rain. Hollow decking on the other hand, does not mirror real wood as much as solid composite, however it has a smaller mass and does not expand as much at extreme temperatures. The downside to the hollow material is that it is more susceptible to damage from harsh weather and everyday use. Make sure to keep these aspects in consideration when choosing the material you would like to use for your deck.

Deck and Patio Covers

Make sure to pick an area of your house or backyard that is not directly exposed to the sunlight. Building your deck in an area that is slightly shaded or receives shade at various times of the day prevents sun damage but also provides you with a cool place to retreat from the harsh summer sun. The addition of a patio awning or umbrella will also help to protect you and your new deck from sun damage. You can look at additional tips for designing and building a deck in our “Deck design” section. Once you have picked the proper material and place for your new deck, you can begin to build the perfect extension turning your plain house into your dream home.

Composite Deck Railings
