Choosing the Right Materials for Your Deck Design in Maryland, Virginia or DC

Planning on building a new deck in Maryland, Virginia or Washington, DC? The biggest factor influencing a deck's longevity, apart from the design itself, is the decking material used in its construction. What the material is and how its maintained, whether its stained hardwood decking or low-maintenance deck boards, determines the difference between a deck that lasts decades and one that shows its age after only a few years.

When it comes to premium decking, one of the names that always stands out in the industry is Zuri Premium Decking (by Royal). However, a consistent question surrounding this decking is how to waterproof the deck itself, thus helping ensure the longevity and usability of the structure. When tackling this issue from a construction standpoint, it’s not actually about treating the boards or making the boards themselves waterproof—or even water resistant. Rather, it entails creating an entire drainage system that affects how the water is irrigated.

Does Zuri Premium Decking by Royal get too hot during the summer and in direct sunlight? How well does Zuri retain heat?

Living in an area with sweltering summers, the amount of heat your porch or deck retains is an important consideration when choosing the design of your deck or porch in Maryland or Virginia. And while Zuri Decking by Royal and alternatives to Zuri will unsurprisingly heat up in direct sunlight, it can be more difficult to set expectations for the temperature of a deck made with low-maintenance Zuri decking than for one made with a more familiar deck material like natural hardwood. However, composite decking materials like Zuri PVC decking are not liable to retain any more or less heat than natural wood.

Is Zuri as slippery and smooth as it looks?

When compared to other types of decking, Zuri Premium Decking by Royal Building Products looks incredibly smooth. For homeowners without a Zuri decking installer, this can play into the common (and valid) concern about how slippery their decking material is going to be, especially if they have children.

As weather conditions conditions change, slipping can be quite dangerous, so it's important to know: How slippery is Zuri PVC decking, and how does it compare to Zuri competitors?
