Alternative Decking Products

For decades, traditional wood products such as cedar and pressure-treated wood  have been used for outdoor projects such as decks and fences. While these products do have an aspect of dependability, new technologies have brought alternative products into the forefront.   

The reasons why an individual would consider the benefits to wood alternatives may include little to no annual maintenance , a wider variety of colours and complimentary accessories and generally a wider palette of options for those who want to let their imagination run wild.

Hanford Lumber offers alternative decking and fencing material in a variety of  materials, from exotic tropical hardwoods to composite materials such as Trex and pure vinyl such as Endeck. Hardwood decking provides unique coloration with toughness and durability where composites and vinyl have colouration with a unique wood grain look and virtually no maintenance. Your project can be the show-stopper in your neighborhood with the addition of accessories such as custom railing systems, lighting solutions and more.
