Decks

There's an interesting article on decks in the June 2006 issue of Home magazine with a list of materials, their performance and maintenance.   I didn't know they made decks from aluminum; they're powder-coated and need the least maintenance.  Natural wood (not pressure-treated) requires the most maintenance, though it's similar to pressure-treated, and has a warranty of 10+ years.  Lots more useful information.  There's a Trex ad in the magazine, btw; it looks like they have more choices now.

From a Country Home e-mail:
