If your deck has seen better days, it’s probably time to make a replacement. And as you know, to make the most of your deck construction, you need to start with choosing high-quality materials.
Gone are the days when the only decking option was wood. Today, there are many good-quality deck materials on the market.
One in particular that everyone is currently talking about is composite decking.
Here’s why composite decks are making headlines:
- It is durable
For a deck, you want a material that can withstand the harshest of elements and can bear the weight of people, furniture, pets, etc. Expect this kind of superior durability with composite decks.
Composite decks are built out of multiple materials to enhance their strength and resist wear and insects for a long time.
- Low maintenance
Composite decking is an excellent compromise to wood decking due to its low-maintenance nature. It doesn’t need painting, staining, or any other seasonal maintenance. Occasional cleaning using water, mild soap, and a brush is all it takes to keep it clean and looking good.
Composite decking is mainly made of reclaimed wood and recycled plastic, meaning no trees are cut, and there’s virtually no negativity it brings to the environment.
- More color choice
Composite comes in various colors and finishes to perfectly match and complement your home’s exterior.
- Its technology is improving every day
Some manufacturers are currently producing composite decking using hard plastic shells[M1] to enhance its durability, making it less prone to scratches, fading, and other problems.
