Man-Made Composites Vs. Natural Wood Decking Materials

There are two main categories of decking materials you can opt for: manmade and natural wood products. However, there are plenty of options within each of these categories. Manmade decking materials include vinyl, PVC and composites. The most commonly used natural wood decking products include tigerwood, jutoba, Ipe, cedar, and redwood.

Opt For Vinyl Siding To Guarantee Your Peace Of Mind!

Introduced in the late 1950s as a substitute for aluminum siding, vinyl siding is a comparatively new building material. While its reputation was tarnished in the early days when it sagged, buckled, faded and cracked, advances in its manufacture and installation techniques has greatly improved its performance and furthered its acceptance by homeowners and builders alike. In fact, vinyl siding has captured approximately 30% of market share in the country, with no end in sight to its growing popularity. The reason, in part, is because it is cheaper than a majority of its siding counterparts, and takes less time to install.
