Composite Decks

Composite decking is a combination of recycled plastic as well as wood fibers.  The lure of a composite deck is enjoying a solution that will last for years to come. We all know that composite materials are more expensive than wood, there are definitely positive trade-offs. Luckily, composite decking is virtually free of maintenance and needs no to be stained, sanded, refinished or sealed, EVER!

The benefits of a composite deck over a traditional cedar deck or the well-known pressure treated deck is that you never have splinters to deal with. You are able 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 want to have to do little work to keep it looking fresh and new.
