5 Advantages of Composite Decks

Wood used to be a go-to material for decks. However, it is now rapidly being replaced by composite decking as the most efficient choice for outdoor spaces. Most professional deck builders recommend using composite as it provides all the visual appeal of wood without the inconvenience of steady upkeep. Other benefits include:

5 Advantages of Composite Decks

  1. Durability: Composite decking is designed to withstand harsh weather conditions and damage from wear and tear. It resists fading, staining and scratching. More importantly, unlike wood, composite will not rot, crack or warp. It is even friendlier to children and pets since it is insect-proof and splinter-free.

  2. Low-maintenance: Building a composite deck means you will not have to worry about sanding, staining or painting. All you need to do is occasionally clean it with soapy water to maintain its durability and beauty for a long period of time.

  3. Beauty: Composite decks come in a wide range of wood grain patterns and saturated colors. This means your deck can mimic the look of natural wood without its well-known drawbacks. You can either select from a deep earth tones collection or feature the similar streaked look of hardwoods that is reminiscent of the tropics.

  4. Sustainability: Boards in composite decks are made from reclaimed materials, including industrial wood scraps and recycled plastic. This is particularly beneficial to homeowners who want to reduce their carbon footprint and embody a green home perspective.

  5. Value: The initial cost of composite decking is higher than most. However, if you factor in the reduced maintenance costs, it comes out as the more cost-effective addition to your residence.
