Trex vs. Wood
Everyone loves the natural look of wood but hates all the painting, staining and sealing. Wood decks of all types, including pressure-treated wood, ipe, cedar or redwood, require extensive upkeep. Trex was designed with the beauty of wood decking, but not all the maintenance. Our high-performance, eco-friendly composite boards withstand years of sun, sleet and snow, keeping their rich color. Through it all, we have never felled a single tree. So when comparing composite decking vs. wood, there’s no competition as to which decking material is best. Whereas Trex is low-maintenance, wood decks:
Can rot, split, swell, twist and fade
Crack from insect infestation
Require annual painting, staining or sealing
Contribute to deforestation

Why Choose Pavers Over Concrete?
Attractiveness – Many homeowners consider pavers much more attractive than asphalt and poured concrete. Concrete pavers come in a vast array of colors, shapes, sizes and textures. Concrete paver colors include beige, coral, variegated or darker blends, as well as blends with flashed tones to harmonize with a home’s exterior cladding. They can easily be put into patterns that complement the architectural style of homes because of the wide variety of styles available.
Durability – Concrete pavers should maintain their beauty and strength for several years when installer properly. Other pavements, such as asphalt or poured concrete typically experience shorter lives.
Maintenance – Concrete pavers are easier to maintain and last longer without needed to be repaired or replaces. In fact, factory-made pavers last for decades and need practically no maintenance when installed to ICPI guidelines. If a concrete paver becomes stained or broken, it can be easily replaced individually without patches. Additionally, pavers work well in freeze-thaw environments since they are easy to plow and snow melts faster to reduce ice hazards.
Cost – The cost of concrete pavers is substantially less than natural stone, and concrete pavers provide an equally as attractive appearance. When factoring in maintenance costs and project durability, concrete pavers are also extremely affordable compared to other outdoor surface choices, such as poured concrete.
Safety – Pavers provide a safe, slip-resistant surface for pedestrian, vehicular and pool projects.
Make the most of your space
Whether it's conversations on the patio after a family dinner or a nighttime soccer game in the backyard, your family can use your outdoor space long after the sun goes down. Floodlights brighten large portions of your yard, and post cap lights set the scene for a relaxing night on the porch. Outdoor lighting gives you more time to enjoy bonding with your family—even if that means missing the kids’ bedtime by a few minutes.
Heighten home security
No more burglars lurking in the dark. Adding lights to your yard and home exterior deters thieves from targeting your property. Illuminated doors and windows make it difficult for intruders to break in unnoticed, and some insurance companies offer insurance credits and policy discounts for homes with increased exterior lighting. If you don’t want bright lights shining at your home all night, consider adding motion-activated lights instead.
Boost curb appeal
Outdoor lighting can showcase what you want to be seen. You can illuminate focal points while leaving others—like your utility shed—in the shadows. Strategically placed wash and down lights accentuate the best features of your home’s exterior and landscape, and bullet lights can make plants and shrubbery stand out. Neighbors will envy your well-lit home each time they walk by and soak up the view.
Landscape lighting increases visibility and decreases the chances of your family and friends taking a nasty tumble in your yard. Stairs, drop-offs and pools are tripping hazards, and illuminating these areas helps prevent falls. Adding lights around your driveway, walkways and house number helps guests find your home easily and arrive safely, too.
We understand the importance of having an aesthetically pleasing outdoor space. A retaining wall can add structure and greatly increase your property value. Modular block and concrete masonry stucco, brick, or stone retaining walls can be designed with curves, tiers with steps or staircases, and unlimited color or pattern choices.
