We all know that decks can bring a particular shine to the yard, but the maintenance and upkeep on them can get to be a lot. However, that’s not the problem any more thanks to low-maintenance decks. 

At Dupont Construction and Remodeling, we have more than 20 years of experience building decks, four season rooms, and more. Contact us today for a free quote.


It’s Time for an Upgrade

Imagine a warm summer evening on your back deck. You’re roasting marshmallows, relaxing, and enjoying quality family time. Everything is perfect. Until your youngest daughter starts screaming and crying, disturbing the peace. She got a splinter in her foot because the back deck got neglected over the cold winter months.

Keeping up with the wear and tear on your deck throughout the significant weather changes seems to take over the relaxing and enjoyable moments. If you’re looking for a deck that you don’t have to worry about giving out splinters, fading deck color, rotting wood, board gaps, or structural weakness, you’re in the right place.  

With summer just around the corner, it’s time to upgrade to a top-quality, low-maintenance deck, guaranteed to make your summer nights enjoyable and stress- free. 

Enjoying Your Deck Year-Round

Wood decking can be an overwhelming decision for homeowners. Especially when the weather ranges from freezing winters with snow and ice to fiery hot summers. These extreme weather changes will cause your outdoor deck to have some real problems without the right care. 

By choosing the right materials, custom decking offers astonishing looks with less upkeep. The material of your deck is just as crucial as your design. There are several important factors, including color, texture, installation, and price.

Dupont Construction gives you the option to install low-maintenance, synthetic, and composite decking materials, such as Trex, Azek, or TimberTech

With these material options, you don’t need to worry about mold, mildew, staining, sealing, or sanding. You can eliminate the headaches and stress that come with traditionally built decks. Stop worrying about your deck, and just enjoy it!  

Choosing a Low-Maintenance Deck That’s Right for You

Whether you’re looking to entertain guests, stargaze with your partner, relax in a recessed hot tub, or create a beautiful outdoor living area for your family, Dupont Construction can meet all your custom deck needs. 

Composite decks resemble wood but are resistant to rot and wear. You can buy the color you want without the extra need to paint or stain them. Trex and TimberTech are leaders in composite decking. Between them, you’re guaranteed to find a cut and color you love. 

Want a less expensive deck that won’t rot, stain, or fade? Azek is the material for you. Your deck will look just like wood but step foot on the 100% recycled material, and there’s no mistaking it’s plastic. 

With these options, there’s no doubt your custom dream outdoor deck designs will come true.

Everyone’s home has its own unique style. Finding a deck that matches your lifestyle and home design never got easier. Dupont Construction and Remodeling specializes in building custom decks that meet your exact needs and wants.

Remodeling\Upgrading Your Deck

Are you using your outdoor deck much less than you expected or used to? Then it’s time for a renovation! If your outdoor deck needs a facelift, Dupont Construction and Remodeling will give that old thing a new lease on life. 

The list of reasons your deck may need a facelift is long. Here are some examples of the most common problems that lead to renovating decks: 

 Maybe it’s too small.

Whether you like to entertain or have a large family, a small deck will not do. You can extend your deck, or convert it to an open or screened porch. Just because you already have a deck doesn’t mean you have to settle for something you’re unhappy with. 


If you’re experiencing wiggling or warped boards, or you’re no longer feeling safe on your deck, it’s time to contact a professional to give a full deck inspection. Once you understand what issues you are facing, you’ll know whether to repair or design a whole new structure. 

Doesn’t meet your lifestyle needs.

Does your dream outdoor deck have space for grilling or an outdoor kitchen? Maybe you’d enjoy shade during the hot summer months, or you want to use your deck for more of the year. Adding a screen can make those wishes come true.  

Requires too much maintenance.

Typically, decks require constant upkeep, but pressure washing, staining, painting or sealing can get tiresome. If your deck’s substructure is standing firm and in good shape, you might consider re-decking with some low-maintenance composite materials.

The Pros of Having a Low-Maintenance Deck

Considering if you should make that leap and purchase an outdoor deck? There are a million reasons to do so. Here are just a few ways you’ll enjoy your time in an outside living space:

Host unforgettable parties 

Whether it’s spring, summer, or fall, you can decorate your deck for any occasion and leave your guests with memories that will last a lifetime.

Create a dining area

Nothing gets the family more excited about coming together for a meal than a specific area to enjoy outdoor dinners.

Build a screened area

Having a deck that’s safe from bugs will take away all the pesky mosquitos at dusk, or those annoying flies while your BBQing. 

Add a hot tub, bar, or kitchen

This is self-explanatory!
