A Great Deck Makes The Backyard More Fun

(NAPSI)—If you’re like an increasing number of Americans at springtime, you’ve begun thinking about better weather and outdoor entertaining. One of the most popular ways to enjoy the season is making sure you have a great outdoor space. For some 30 million American homes, this means a deck.

Why A Deck

Here are three of the reasons why decks of all types are becoming so popular:

1. A deck adds to the value of your home. According to Remodeling magazine, you can expect about a 65 percent return on your investment.

2. New materials make decks more durable and easier to maintain.

3. Decks are the ideal good-weather entertainment space. Add an outdoor grill, portable bar or hot tub and you have a party.

An option growing in popularity is the use of composite decking materials instead of wood. In fact, today’s composite decking manufacturers can simulate the look of many exotic hardwoods.

Modern composite decking and railing are now as beautiful as real wood, with the added benefits of durability and low maintenance—unlike wood decks that require backbreaking staining every year or two, composites keep their beauty for decades. Plus, composite decking and railing means absolutely no splinters, twisting or warping, and resistance to scratches, mold and stains. Not even any nail or screw heads to catch bare feet.

One composite decking and railing company, Fiberon, makes all its decking in America with sustainable practices. The manufacturing process captures 98.5 percent of waste materials. And 40,000 tons of wood and plastic are kept out of landfills. There’s also a 25-year stain and fade limited warranty on some lines.

Fiberon decking and railing comes in multiple colors and profile options so your deck can be completely customized. The Fiberon Deck Design Idea Tool lets you pick the colors, styles and products for your dream deck and then save the selections or share them via e-mail with family and friends.

Special Promotion

To help people get started, the company will give away $5,000 in decking products to one lucky homeowner per month for four months, through July.
