Do you have a composite deck but don’t know how to properly take care of it? Because composite decks are made from wood byproducts (i.e. wood chips, sawdust) and plastics, they require less maintenance work than other wood decks. These types of decks come in a variety of styles, colors, and grains to choose from.
Taking care of your deck isn’t a hard process at all. The first thing you should do is to grab a broom and dustpan and begin sweeping your deck. Sweeping frequently will help keep your deck clean. As you’re sweeping, make sure to sweep all of the debris off of your low maintenance deck. Pick up any leaves or sticks that might be stuck within the cracks of your deck board. Composite decking material cannot be sanded nor refinished so if you see any stains on the deck, be sure to address them quickly so that they can be removed.
Next, scrub your deck with soap and hot water or composite deck cleaner. Use a deck brush while scrubbing the surface of your composite deck. The deck brush that you use should have soft bristles to make your deck even smoother.
Finally, rinse off your low maintenance deck using the water hose. Make sure all of the soap’s residue is removed. If your composite deck has any marks on it, use nail polish remover, rubbing it in a circular motion, on a wet cotton ball to get it off. Once finished, allow your deck to dry.

Here at Miles Bradley, we build custom composite decks in Farmington Hills. We use Timbertech and Trex composite decking materials for the best quality decks. While our decks are of the highest quality, they are also beautiful.
Both Timbertech and Trex are popular composite decking companies. This means that both companies have similar advantages. Unlike wood, composite decks have desirable factors of durability, longevity, and maintainability. But there are some differences between Timbertech and Trex as well.
Timbertech decks are generally more expensive than Trex decks. This is because of the slight difference in the board design. Although Timbertech boards are also made of recycled material, they contain a protective polymer shell that protects all four sides of the board. Because of this extra coverage, Timbertech materials are more resistant to harsh weather, an important quality to have in Michigan.
All of the Trex decking materials are made up of a protective shell and a composite core. The protective shell provides coverage to three sides of the board; the top and both sides. The bottom of the board is left unsealed, allowing the material to respire while also being protected. Furthermore, Trex decking materials tend to have more scratch resistance than Timbertech.
