Need to replace a rotten front porch and entrance that has wooden decking. There are a few stairs. Should I use composite decking, stamped concrete or pavers? I want long-lasting, low maintenance. I live in Colorado, and it faces north.
The right choice depends on the type of house we're talking about. If it's a traditional colonial for example, you wouldn't want anything but the look of a wooden porch deck (composites perfectly fine to use) but if the home is Prairie style you might want to use stone pavers. The use of color is important too, try to keep things subtle and complementary to the color scheme of the house.
