Composite Decking

We always think of decking as made of wood, and this is true if you look around and see all the decks constructed from wood. Although wood is beautiful when new it requires constant care and attention to keep it that way, similar to any other natural product.

Composite decking is a great alternative product that does not require the hassles associated with wood. These deck building products provide increased durability as well as extremely low maintenance. You’ll appreciate the new styles and colors which are a break from the humdrum, common deck materials that homeowners are tired of seeing.

Composite Decks

Composite decks (sometimes referred to as an engineered product) are manufactured using a variety of combinations of components such as wood fibers, fillers, and binders. These components of composite decks are heated and compressed into the base composite decking boards. They offer a very durable exterior surface that is difficult to discolor and scratch, and which is easy to clean. Composite decks also resist shrinking and swelling better than natural wood decking products.

Composite decking has more advantages over pressure treated pine decking. The material is harder and won’t dent, and they are approved for fire-rated construction. Wood products will burn and plastic-based products will melt or warp when exposed to a significant heat source.

Over a ten year period, your house decking will take a great deal of punishing use and weather. This physical beating which includes people walking and jumping on it, intense sunshine, braai grease burns, and rain with high winds, will wear down even the strongest of wood deck materials.

Composite decks keep their beautiful appearance for many years to come with minimal maintenance. A simple pressure washing once a year is all that’s required.
