The Benefits of Composite Decking

Have you considered the beauty of a composite deck?

Composite decking has replaced pressure-treated decking as one of the most popular, flexible, and durable materials for your new deck. Gone are the long summer afternoons cleaning, stripping, sanding, and sealing your wood deck. Composite decks require much less upkeep—and that’s just where the benefits begin!  

Little to No Maintenance

Composite decking gives you the beautiful deck you want without all of the maintenance you don’t. If you currently have or have owned a wooden deck, you are familiar with all of the upkeep—regular staining, seasonal maintenance, etc. Wood decks are prone to cracking, mold growth, splintering, and rotting. Composite decking will not need yearly staining and sealing, but you will still need to pay attention for any signs of surface mold or staining. However, unlike wood decking, composite decking only needs some old fashioned scrubbing with deck cleaner and a brush to get looking new.

Long Lasting

Composite decking is an excellent choice for your new deck if you would like to use a material known for longevity. Composite decking is made from a combination of vinyl, wood, cellulose, and plastic. As a result, it can withstand the effects of sun, rain, wind, and snow much better than traditional wooden decks that are prone to insect infestation, fading, and rotting.

Won’t Fade Away

While wood decks are available in a variety of beautiful wood grains and they look gorgeous when they are first installed, they fade quickly and unevenly. Composite decking avoids the fade due to its material composition. If you want a new deck that stays looking new for years to come, composite decking will give you whatever color you want without any uneven fading. Composite decks also always matches themselves, as boards are manufactured and not cut from natural materials. While some homeowners like the look of mismatched wooden boards, many would prefer a charming color-coordinated look.
