Composite Decks

Composite decking is a combination of recycled plastic as well as wood fibers.  The benefits of a composite deck is having a product that will last for years to come. While composite materials might cost more than wood, there are definitely positive trade-offs. Luckily, composite decking is just about free of any real maintenance and doesn’t need to be stained, sanded, refinished or sealed, EVER!

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