The first day of Spring is around the corner! More than any other season, Spring is a time for new beginnings and in the home remodeling world, new exterior projects. As the weather warms, homeowners get ready to tackle some of their most ambitious home updates to get ready for Summer. What’s at the top of the list? Maintaining, repairing or replacing a deck.

Homeowners often ask, “How long does a deck last?” Well, that depends on the kind of wood that is used; how often you treat it; and whether you shoveled the snow off it during the winter. Naturally rot-resistant cedar or pressure-treated wood decks may last decades with proper upkeep. Seasonal maintenance includes cleaning (pressure treated decks will require power washing) and conditioning the deck as well as painting or staining it every year.

One of the newest materials that The Remodeling Company has been using is Kebony wood. Kebony is an enhanced wood of superior quality that is also cost-effective. It can be used for decks, siding, benches, and walkways in both residential and commercial settings. Most often, we use it in deck construction.

Kebony wood is beautiful, highly durable and sustainable. The expected lifespan of Kebony deck boards is 50 years or more and Kebony decking comes with a 30-year rot and decay warranty. It’s sourced from FSC-Certified forests, can stand up to the harshest conditions, and is resistant to insects, fungi and decay. Best of all, it requires minimal maintenance.
