The saying “it’s too good to be true” definitely applies when using the Cascade Perma Deck 100 % recycled plastic lumber on this deck.

The original decking material on this deck was 5/4 cedar. After about the 6 years and consistent “reminders” from his better half about re-sanding and staining the existing cedar deck the decision was made to pull of the cedar and use 100% recycled plastic lumber. According to the Cascades (the manufacturer) this material would require very little maintenance and free up time to do the other “hunny-do” items on his list !

Now, with the new plastic deck, and after 3 years of constant use and, yes, very little maintenance other than sweeping, it was time to see if the material would in-fact live up to its “too good to be true” statement.

And it did !!

The owner used a pressure washer as recommended by the manufacturer and it’s amazing how the material was brought back to its original colour and look.
