Price vs Quality
Price and quality are the two main components people look at when planning a project. If the budget is tight then one's decision might be based on best price. Someone who had a bad experience with a poor quality product that needs replacing may base the decision on quality.

Finding out the right information about the products you are buying is a great start to purchasing the right product for you at the right price.
Whether you plan to do it yourself or hire a pro, the key to success is factoring in all the critical design issues, picking the right material for your budget, climate, and lifestyle, and building a structure that will stand the test of time.

There are a variety of products out there including composite decking. Composite lumber is a material that is a mixture of wood fiber, plastic, and some type of binding agent. These ingredients are put together to form a material that is denser, stronger, and heavier than wood alone, a wood-plastic composite. Fiberon decking is one example of what is available.
