Is pressure-treated wood or low-maintenance composite decking best for a screen room with a deck?

The mid-Atlantic climate can be cruel to decks, assailing wood with bright sun, heavy rain, and icy snow throughout the year. Because our decks are subject to harsh elements, both wood and composite decking materials deteriorate over time. UV rays can cause decking to age, dry out, and fade in color, while the moisture from rain, snow, and humid conditions can bring in mold and mildew. Without proper maintenance and care, your exterior deck can end up looking dirty and worn in as little as a year.

Bug Protection For Your Screened-In Porch

If there’s a way into your screen porch, you can bet that pests will find it.  In a well built screen porch, the door should be the potential way a pest can find it's way into the room.

In order to be effective protection against bugs, a screen porch must be completely enclosed, but if your porch wasn’t well built from the start, it is often the deck floorboards that were overlooked. Traditional decking has a 1/8” or 1/4” gap between boards, more than enough room for mosquitoes or other bugs to crawl through.

Here are the three most effective ways that you can build or update a structure to provide more complete protection from creepy-crawlies.
