The last few years have brought big changes to outdoor decks.  With the slowing economy and people staying in their homes longer it has changed the deck market.   The size of the average deck is getting smaller and homeowners are focusing on value and a good design that meets their needs . Decks are still split among wood and composite in the same ratios as the last several years but the type of composite decking they use is changing.  With less new houses being built, the houses are getting older and many homeowner have put of repairing their old decks.  This means that there are more old and unsafe decks on houses than ever before.  People are staying home more and looking for ways to make their homes more inviting and useful to them.
