Material options for deck skirting


I am to add skirting to my deck soon. I don't want to do the standard plastic lath; easy but it looks cheap. My plan is to do a vertical shadow board in a dark color.
Since this will be a darker color, is PVC out of the question?
What other options are there?

Re: Material options for deck skirting


Google "deck skirting ideas" there's a few hundred pictures that come up to give you some ideas.
Lattice does not have to look cheap, it's all in how it's installed and trimmed out.

Re: Material options for deck skirting


We are planning on trying out Armourwood. It is primed so you can paint it any color you like and is suppose to be durable as vinyl also has a life time warranty it was way cheaper than vinyl and safe for children and pets. Here's their website http://armourwood.com/why-armour-wood/overview/ Sorry can't comment on the durability we haven't started building our deck yet lol Has anybody used this?

Re: Material options for deck skirting


just don't create a "cozy" place for night critters lol. I set up a cam one night for a few days under ours (no skirt) and caught some interesting shots! The rats were coming from a neighbor and we caught a few but seems they were looking for way under house (sealed). The cat was a welcome sight, perhaps hunting rodents

Enjoy!
