If you are reading this, you are likely interested in the wood/low maintenance combo deck. Good job! Here are a few ideas to give you a good idea of what is possible with this particular deck design.

Wood/Low Maintenance Combo Deck Design Basics

The most basic design for a wood/low maintenance combo deck is a wood deck platform with a low maintenance material deck railing, staircase, or additional features. The wood platform will remain strong and sturdy for many years, while the deck railing and stairs provide extra security due to their great resilience to the elements. 

Composite, Vinyl, or Aluminum?

The question is, what kind of low maintenance material would you like to use for your deck? Low maintenance deck materials include composite, vinyl, and aluminum. 

  • Composite is a combination of PVC plastic and recycled wood fibers.
  • Vinyl is a 100% polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic with chemicals that block deterioration.
  • Aluminum is a lightweight, rust-free alternative to wrought iron great for reinforcing deck railings or deck staircase railings.

Low Maintenance Deck Railings

If you are concerned about how secure your deck railings are, low maintenance deck railings are a great choice. One can install composite railings, vinyl deck railings, or low maintenance deck railings with aluminum rails. 

Low Maintenance Staircases

You may also opt for a composite, vinyl, or even an aluminum staircase. The deck staircase is not a structure you want to leave to chance in terms of its structural integrity or durability. Mid-Atlantic Deck & Fence can help you both choose an excellent staircase material and design it custom to your space.

Additional Features

Additional low maintenance features that can be combined with a wood deck include pergolas, gazebos, built-in benches, and built-in plant boxes. At Mid-Atlantic Deck & Fence, we have a whole range of features that we can add to your deck.
