What are the best materials for a deck in Colorado?

When it comes to building a deck in Colorado, the choice of materials is crucial, given the state's diverse climate conditions. You have options like pressure-treated wood, cedar, or even traditional composite decking. However, we highly recommend Deckorator's mineral-based composite decking as the superior choice for several compelling reasons.

Why Choose Deckorator's Mineral-Based Composite Decking?

  1. Enhanced Durability: Unlike traditional materials, Deckorator's mineral-based composite decking is engineered to withstand the Colorado climate, be it heavy snowfall or intense sunlight.

  2. Low Maintenance: Say goodbye to frequent staining and sealing. Deckorator's composite material is designed for low upkeep, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor space rather than maintaining it.

  3. Aesthetically Pleasing: Deckorator's offers a range of colors and finishes that mimic the natural beauty of wood but without the associated drawbacks like warping, splitting, or rotting.

  4. Eco-Friendly: Built with sustainable materials, Deckorator's decking not only enhances your outdoor space but also is kind to the environment.

  5. Innovative Features: From slip-resistant surfaces to hidden fastener systems, Deckorator's pays attention to every detail, ensuring your deck is not only beautiful but also functional.

How Does It Compare to Trex Decking?

While Trex Decking is a well-known name in the industry and offers quality composite materials, Deckorator's mineral-based composite decking takes it a step further. With its cutting-edge technology and advanced features, Deckorator's outperforms Trex when it comes to durability, aesthetic choices, and innovative design options.

By choosing Deckorator's for your custom deck, you're investing in a product that combines the latest technology with enduring beauty, creating the perfect outdoor oasis suited to Colorado's unique environmental conditions.

Do I need a permit for a new deck in Colorado?

Absolutely, obtaining a building permit is a critical step when planning to construct a new deck in Colorado. Permitting ensures that your deck meets local building codes and safety regulations, which is crucial for both the longevity of the project and for potential future home sales. However, we understand that navigating this bureaucratic process can be confusing and time-consuming for homeowners.

How Freedom Contractors Handles the Permitting Process for You:

  1. Initial Assessment: During our consultation, we evaluate your project's scope to determine the specific permits you'll need. This might include building permits, zoning permits, and even historic preservation approvals in certain areas.

  2. Documentation Preparation: We handle all the paperwork, from site plans to structural specifications, making sure to adhere to local Colorado building codes.

  3. Submission & Follow-Up: Once the documentation is ready, we submit the permit application on your behalf. We also keep track of the application's status and respond to any inquiries or additional requirements from the permitting office.

  4. Inspections: After the permit is approved and construction is underway, inspections are usually required at various phases. We coordinate these inspections to make sure they align with our construction schedule, ensuring a seamless process.

  5. Final Approval: After all inspections are complete and have met the necessary criteria, we secure the final approval, signifying that your new deck is officially ready for you to enjoy!

By entrusting your decking project to Freedom Contractors, you're not only receiving a high-quality custom deck but also the peace of mind that all permits and inspections are handled efficiently and professionally. Our end-to-end service means you can focus on envisioning your dream outdoor space, while we take care of the nitty-gritty details.

What is composite decking and is it suitable for Colorado weather?

Yes. Composite decking is a modern alternative to traditional wooden decking. Made from a blend of recycled wood fibers and plastic, composite decking combines the natural look of wood with the durability (like snow, hail, rain) and low-maintenance benefits of synthetic materials.

Why Choose Deckorator's Voyage Composite Decking?

  1. VertiGrain™ Surface: Deckorator's Voyage line features a unique embossed pattern, making the surface slip-resistant. This is especially useful in Colorado where icy conditions can make walking on a deck hazardous.
  2. Superior Durability: Deckorator's Voyage composite decking is designed to resist fading, staining, and water damage, crucial features for Colorado's varying weather conditions—be it heavy snowfall, intense sunlight, or high-altitude dryness.
  3. High Traction: Designed with safety in mind, the high-traction surface of Voyage decking meets ADA guidelines for slip-resistant surfaces, making it perfect for the Colorado climate, which can often fluctuate between wet and dry conditions.
  4. Thermal Resistance: Colorado's diverse climate requires a decking material that can withstand both hot summers and cold winters. The Voyage line offers excellent thermal resistance, making it suitable for all seasons.
  5. Environmentally Friendly: With a focus on sustainability, Deckorator's Voyage composite decking is made from recycled materials, reducing its environmental footprint.
  6. 25-Year Warranty: Deckorator's Voyage composite decking comes with a 25-year structural, 25-year stain & fade, and 25-year removal & replacement warranty, giving you peace of mind.

Considering these benefits, Deckorator's Voyage composite decking offers an exceptional choice for homeowners in Colorado. With its unique combination of durability, safety features, and aesthetic appeal, your deck will not only look great but also withstand the test of time and weather.
