Composite decking is a mix of recycled plastic coupled with wood fibers.  The advantages of a composite deck is owning a product 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 virtually free of any real maintenance and needs no to be stained, sanded, refinished or sealed, EVER!

The value of a composite deck over a traditional cedar deck or the well-known pressure treated deck is that you never have splinters to content 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.
