Composite Decks

Composite decking is a combination of recycled plastic and wood fibers.  The lure of a composite deck is enjoying a solution 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 maintenance and needs no to be stained, sanded, refinished or sealed, EVER!

The great thing 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 are able and safely, walk around on it with no socks on.  And, not to mention that it surprisingly does not get as hot to the touch. 

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