Check out this beautiful AridDek and Wahoo Rail project that Archadeck of Augusta did a “Great Job” on! “To reduce the up-keep, we decided to go with an aluminum decking. Turned out to not be any more expensive than the newer composites. With all the trees we have, keeping the debris cleaned from the openings between deck boards is a real pain. There are no openings with this material, so much less up-keep. It creates a water proof cover of the area below. We also have a problem with squirrels gnawing on the composite I used to build the front porch and walk, shouldn’t have that issue with this at all!
