A deck maximizes your outdoor space and gives you a wonderful setting for dinner parties, get-togethers, and family time. Harford County is lucky enough to have beautiful summers, and a deck will help you take advantage of every sunny day. Once you’re set on adding a deck, you’ll need to decide on the right material for your home. When decks first became popular, the only options were wood and stone. Today, vinyl decking options have expanded the pool of possibilities. While many people still prefer wood, others are making the switch.


Vinyl decking will handle the elements with much more grace than wood decking. It is well-equipped to handle plenty of moisture, heavy traffic, and even snow and wind. Vinyl tends to be stain and scratch resistant, meaning you’ll have a lot less maintenance on your hands. You won’t have to worry about mildew, mold, or insects either. Decks made of wood require staining every 2 to 3 years, and often require sanding for areas that have splintered. When you choose vinyl, you can expect it to last much longer with almost no maintenance.


The best part of vinyl decking is that the options are broad. Many people prefer the look of wood, with its timeless elegance and expensive appearance. While you can choose different species and stains, only certain ones can stand up to the harsh conditions of the outdoors. Vinyl decking comes in every shape, size, and color you can think of. You can get a smooth vinyl deck, or choose one with the same grain as a wood deck might have. No matter what style your home is, there is a vinyl deck out there to compliment it.
