Composite decking is expensive, but our Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, climate will be tough on any material. Will there be any long-term savings and benefits in upkeep and repairs using a composite material versus redwood?
I just don't like the looks of our cement patio in Fayetteville, Arkansas. It seems uninviting. I'd really like to cover the patio with a composite decking material. The patio is a couple of broad, terraced stone steps down from the patio door, so I don't think the finished height is a problem. Are there any reasons not to cover the cement patios with composite decks?
