While enjoying the outdoors on your new Trex Composite Deck, you may think you would like a fire pit on the deck. So the question becomes, can you put a fire pit on your composite deck? Well, the answer is a little muddy. First, you should never put a fire pit directly on your deck with no protection. The heat alone can warp the decking materials as well as embers can burn the deck as well.
Trex decking can soften at about 176 degrees Fahrenheit so you have to very cautious on the size of your fire. In addition, never install the firepit directly on top of the deck. A gas type fire pit is a much better option than a wood-burning one
If you are determined to add a fire pit to your deck try to keep some of this advice in mind. Make sure under the firepit you install fire-resistant material for the pit to rest on. Insulated walls of stone or other types of materials are used to prevent heat from escaping. Deck Protect is another product that is used to prevent fire damage to your deck. Also, you can have a new custom-built deck that encompasses the fire pit and does not have the fire pit directly on the deck.
At Miles Bradley, we custom build low maintenance composite decks all the time and we can accommodate your needs. While it is not highly recommendable to put a large fire pit on your composite deck. With careful planning and the right type of materials and fire pit, it can be done. Call us today at 248-478-8660 in the Detroit area or 847-920-7601 in the Chicago area.

A screened enclosure is a great thing to construct before the Summer arrives. At the beginning of Summer, bugs start to spawn, trees start to pollinate and mess with your allergies, and hot temperatures force you to blast your air conditioning system. In addition, a screened enclosure from Miles Bradley allows for you and your family to be outside with all of the benefits of being indoors! Furthermore, you can avoid the numerous bug species, pesky tree pollen, and even the hot temperatures (by installing a fan in the enclosure)!
Summer weather can be unpredictable. When it rains, usually it ruins your plans for outdoor festivities. With an enclosure, you can still enjoy the outdoor activities and festivities with your family while still being protected against the rain or other harsh elements.
Enclosures use up that extra space that you don’t really use. Do you have a deck or porch that sits empty for half of the year? With a screened enclosure, you can use the space year-round. You can use the full value of your property all the time!
The enclosures we build are a great fit with your composite deck made from Trex decking. You can have a matching enclosure and deck that would make your house look great!
Enclosures and Decks are all the rage nowadays. Home buyers look for houses with a screened enclosure and well-made deck so they will not have to add to the cost of buying the house when they add one.

Are you looking for a brand-new composite deck for your dream backyard? You have a few choices on what to make your deck out of. Trex, the world’s number one decking brand, TimberTech, America’s number one in premium decking, or original wood, an easy material to use that is the go-to for many people.
Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages, so we cover the great Trex vs Timbertech debate.
Trex is an eco-friendly decking material. Unlike wood, Trex decks come will not rot, split, swell, or crack from insect infestation. And because the color is ingrained within the material, Trex does not require repainting, annual staining or sealing.
TimberTech is number one in premium decking. These decks are durable enough to withstand almost anything your family, friends, and the elements throw at it. They do not require any staining or sealing in its long-lasting life in your backyard.
Wood decks are the original design that many flocks to in the spring and summer months. Even though wood is in need of replacement every couple of years, wooden decks are easy to construct at a reasonably affordable price. Unfortunately, this resource is scarce and can lead to deforestation. It also splits and splinters with age. So, perhaps wood is not the best option for today’s standards.
Trex is by far the best and most reliable brand to use when constructing a deck. Your deck will last for years to come with Trex as its construction base. You can make the deck of your dreams in the color of your choice. So why wait?
