Timbertech maintenance free composite decks

Posted by william bateman on Mon, Dec 23, 2013 @ 10:07 PM

In todays fast pace world most of us have little to no time for anything more than work. The small amount of time left in the day you would rather be relaxing and enjoying rather than maintaining your deck. That is why Timbertech composite decking has become so popular around the world due to its low maintainance.

Treated lumber decks are still a popular choice around the world but require yearly maintanance to keep wood from cracking and checking. Over time the flooring and railings will have to be replaced. Usually at this point the floor joists are still in good shape so composite flooring can be installed over your existing deck structure.

Flooring on this deck is Timbertech Pacific Walnut with hidden fasteners. Hidden fasteners leave a beautiful clean look with no screws exposed.

Benefits of Composite decks:

  • Low maintainance

  • Added value to home

  • No splinters

  • No replacement of flooring in years down the road

  • No painting/staining

  • More time to enjoy your deck instead of working on it

    Whether composite or treated lumber, a new deck is always a great retreat to your beautiful backyard. Outdoor living has become priority to many and there is no better place than your own home. Vacations can eat up thousands in a week leaving only memories and and an empty pocket. A new deck/backyard enhancement will create value, memories and a lifetime later you will still have your deck.

Flooring remodel with Pergo flooring

Posted by william bateman on Sat, Jan 29, 2011 @ 06:49 PM

No matter what room in your house, Pergo has a floor that will completely transform the appearance. Pergo is the company that invented the floating floor system that mimics the real wood appearance. Pergo floors offer extremely high durability and easy clean up. Get rid of those rugs that hold in dirt and debris and create the perfect ecosystem for bacteria and allergens.home improvements,monroe,ny,contractor

Basements are one of the areas I find Pergo flooring to be very useful. Real wood floors are extremely difficult to install in basements because basement floors are made of concrete. With the inability to nail into the concrete, real wood floors must be glued to the concrete. Pergo floors float right over top of the concrete with the aid of a vapor barrier. Pergo floors also have a more durable finish that real wood floors.



What you gain by installing Pergo flooring:

  • Added value to your home.
  • Easier clean up time than carpet.
  • No sanding and smells of polyurethane that contain high VOC's
  • Ability to change flooring easily.
  • High durability.
  • Cheaper purchasing and installation than real wood floors.
  • Great for pets. Does not hold hair and dander like carpet.
