Lynn Kimball, Highlands real estate

When it comes to remodeling Highlands NC homes an often asked question is, real wood or fake wood?  Whether choosing material for decking, railings or flooring the question is  a good one.  Technological advances have many materials being produced to resemble wood and, unlike their predecessors, they are doing a remarkable job. If you are remodeling a home with an eye on selling or simply with an eye on durability you may be seriously considering alternatives to wood.

Trends being seen in Highlands real estate include porcelain tile that is made to look like wood, linoleum, and other surfaces that you have to get down on your hands and knees and touch to know the difference.  For decking and railings there is the option of Trex and similar products that offer easy, maintenance free faux wood that doesn’t need to be stained, oiled, or treated seasonally.  The choice for faux wood does boil down to cost more often than not, offering perhaps not just a lower cost up front but lower costs over time due to the ease of maintenance and care.
