Cutting Edge

All hands on deck for spring

Trex composite decking, posts and railings resist the fading, staining, warping, rotting, mold and mildew that solid wood surfaces battle. Trex comes in 15 hues and is available locally at T.W. Perry. Pictured here, Clamshell decking with a Transcend railing. twperry.com; trex.com

Craftmade’s Mobi 60-inch outdoor ceiling fan boasts three blades, an LED light and a clean-lined silhouette. The fan comes in three finishes; pictured here with Grey Wood blades and an Aged Galvanized metal base. Available locally through Ferguson. ferguson.com; craftmadefansolutions.com

Zuri Premium Decking by Royal replicates the rich look of exotic timber in a low-maintenance, engineered-wood material that comes  in five wood-look colors (Pecan is pictured). Scratch-, stain- and slip-resistant, it is available through Royal Building Products. zuri.royalbuildingproducts.com

A patented blend of polypropylene and mineral filler inside Deckorators Vault decking sets it apart from other composite products by making it lighter-weight and easier to handle—but with the same high level of durability. deckorators.com

Though ipe is more expensive than composites and requires frequent sealing, extreme durability and striking color variations have made it a popular decking product. Panels of this richly grained Brazilian hardwood are typically available in three- and four-inch widths from Deckscapes of Virginia, located in Catharpin. deckscapesofva.com

Distinction—a line of Envision composite decking from TAMKO Building Products—comes in four hues that mimic wood grain by incorporating knots and four to six shades and highlights on each board. Spiced Teak is pictured. envisiondecking.com
