Composite decking is a blend of wood fibre, plastic and binding agents. This mix forms a material that is denser, stronger and heavier than wood alone. The composite decking gives an appearance much like wood but requires much less maintenance.
Let us take a look at the top 4 benefits of choosing composite for your new deck.
Composite decking was designed in such a way to be superior to wooden decks.
Composites stand up to the elements such as UV rays and moisture that affect other deck materials. Their composition of materials make them more resistant to termites or mold infestation than regular wood. They are also eco-friendly being made up of recycled materials.
- Low maintenance
Wooden decks need repairs, along with re-staining and re-sealing every few years. The construction of composite decking make it so no maintenance is needed, none!
Although the initial investment may be higher, it will cost you less over time and make it hassle free.
Composite decking boards give you a realistic wood grain finish beyond that of pressure treated wood. The textured surface has the look of natural wood grain, which also adds the benefit of being slip-resistant. The durable surface resists scratches, keeping even high-traffic areas from showing signs of wear. There are also various natural colors to choose from
- Long term savings
It may seem as though you are investing more for a composite deck initially. A wooden deck will always be more tempting as your investment cost is lower. However, you cannot deny the regular maintenance that comes with having a wood deck.
Quit simply, investing in a quality composite decking will save you time and money by avoiding the regular maintenance wood decking requires.
