What Is Composite Decking?

Composite decking is made of a mixture of materials consisting of wood and recycled plastic. It has a nice appearance that resembles real wood and requires little maintenance, which makes it a great alternative to other types of decking.

Benefits

Composite decking is resistant to sun damage and fading. It has a non-slip finish that does not require sealing, staining or painting and is splinter-free.

Advantages

Decks made of composite materials are more likely to resist insects, decay and less likely to show the signs of aging then if they were made of real wood.

Use

Composite decking is used just like real wood by nailing, sawing and using screws to hold it in place. You can use this type of decking for decks, pools areas and anywhere else that you have used lumber before.
