Composite Decks

Composite decking is a mix of recycled plastic coupled with wood fibers.  The advantages of a composite deck is enjoying a solution that will last a long time. We all know that composite materials are more expensive than wood, there are definitely positive trade-offs. Luckily, composite decking is just about free of any real maintenance and needs no to be stained, sanded, refinished or sealed, EVER!

The amazing benefit of a composite deck over a traditional cedar deck or the well-known pressure treated deck is that you don’t ever deal with splinters. You can easily and safely, walk around on it with no shoes on.  And, let’s not forget that it surprisingly does not get as hot to the touch. 

The technology advancements made with composite decking products make them amazing options for homeowners that desire to have to do little work to keep it looking clean and new.
