Most composite products are manufactured from wood by-products (sawdust, wood chips, etc.) and recycled plastics. Combining synthetic and organic materials captures the best of both worlds, and creates a durable product that looks and feels similar to wood decking.
The number one benefit of composite products is longevity. Composite deck materials can withstand the most severe weather conditions for decades without any additional treatment or protection. Having said that, two downsides of composite decking is the colour of the material will fade over time, as well as depending on where your deck is positioned, the sun can often heat the plastic which makes walking on it in bare feet, often challenging.
Composite decks do not need to be stained, painted, or treated. Composite products maintain a consistent and beautiful appearance from the first year onward.
Composite deck products come in a variety of colours and textures. You can create a multi-colored outdoor living space by combining different composite colored boards in one deck project. We like to combine lightly colored deck boards bordered with darker tones for a dramatic look.
