After years of decorating the interior of their homes, many people are turning their energy outside to create outdoor spaces for relaxing and entertaining. This shift reflects a lifestyle-outdoor living-that extends beyond a home's traditional walls. Having a wood deck or composite deck installed offers one perk that most home improvements don't offer. Due to the fact that the addition is outside, you won't have to interrupt your daily life to accommodate to the installation. Wood decks remains a popular and appropriate choice for building decks and fences. A little care when installing the boards, combined with regular maintenance, will help keep the wood looking good for years. Although composite decks are more popular in areas like: key Largo, Panama City, Marathon, Islamorada and even in Key West. Composite decking is very attractive; it is made using a mixture of plastic and wood, virgin plastic and cellulose fibers or flour and/or a blend of virgin products with recycled materials. Some are still made with 100 percent recycled materials.
