Today’s spotlight project exemplifies how a new deck can give a home a whole new look. This Tri-Cities project created several different outdoor rooms. The main decking area, which we could think of as an outdoor living room, includes a built-in bench and plenty of room to spread out. The bench creates a natural border while also providing convenient, comfortable seating. We also created a charming outdoor dining room by adding an octagonal area of decking. Finishing touches, such as vertical supports for hanging flowers, make the dining area especially inviting.
But that’s not all that makes this project special. From a design perspective, the use of two different tones of decking adds depth and visual interest. PVC decking is now available in a range of shades. Here we used Endeck PVC decking materials in Ironwood and Olivewood shades. Endeck PVC has a reputation for excellence among deck builders. Tri-Cities families will appreciate the fact that the color goes straight through Endeck boards, so scratches will fade to a softer color over time.
This innovative PVC decking product requires practically no maintenance. The only thing these Tri-Cities homeowners will have to do now and then is wash off the surface of the deck with a garden hose. Heavy traffic areas may be cleaned with a stiff bristle brush and a cleaner like Simple Green. And heavier stains generally lift away from the surface with a stronger detergent or cleaning solution. Endeck decking materials are completely inorganic, meaning that mold and mildew cannot grow on them. And with PVC decking, there’s no need to scrape, clean, sand, and stain every year, as is required for wood decks. Endeck will not warp or twist, or create splinters. Each side of Endeck boards is textured to feel like wood, so walking barefoot on Endeck feels great, especially since it stays cool to the touch even in the hottest weather.
The use of two different shades of Endeck allowed us to divide the decking spaces visually. And the unique octagonal shape of the dining area makes for a captivating outdoor living area. Hanging baskets of colorful flowers made the perfect final touch for this stunning decking project.
