Vinyl & Composite Decks
If near-zero maintenance is your goal, we suggest you consider purchasing composite decking. Most composite decking is made from recycled plastic and wood chips or sawdust.
Today’s vinyl and composite decking materials have greatly improved from the earlier composite and PVC products. These new and improved products come in a variety of colors and textures, and are all warranted against staining and fading. Keep in mind that all decking products will require periodic pressure washing to keep them looking new.
Here are some of the brands we trust and often recommend:
AZEK Deck is the next generation of decking. Now, wood and composite decking are no longer your only choices. AZEK Deck, made of cellular PVC, is engineered with propriety Procell Technology, and virtually eliminates all the shortfalls associated with today’s decking materials.

No other decking looks as amazing and lasts as long as Zuri—an effortless extension of the ideal living space.
Classic Cedar Decks
Cedar decking is a great material for deck building. It looks great, is naturally resistant to rot, and is easy to work with.
Cedar is a fantastic choice for a deck building material because of its combination of unique properties. It is dimensionally stable, meaning that it lays flat and stays straight. Even grain and consistent density make it less likely to warp, cup or twist. It’s fragrant, dark-colored heartwood naturally resists rot and insect infestation in outdoor environments without the need for preservative chemicals.
Most carpenters figure a lifespan of 15 to 20 years for cedar wood deck boards, but it can deteriorate faster when used for ground level decks and for shaded decks that are slow to dry out. To retain the color, you should clean it and reseal it every year or two.
While their primary function is safety, railings are also an important aesthetic feature that can pull together the design of a porch, deck or home’s entrance. While all of our railings are built to meet stringent IBC codes and withstand the harshest elements and years of use, they are also beautiful to the eye.
Lansing has provided the finest exterior building products available since 1955, and their railing line is no exception. Virtually maintenance-free and warranted for a lifetime, Lansing rail products will add beauty to the home while allowing more time to enjoy it.
