Composite Decking

By | Homeowner News, Products, Projects | No Comments

What is Composite Decking?

Composite decking first entered the decking market in the early to mid 1990’s as an alternative to traditional lumber.  Composite boards are often made up of recycled material like rubber and plastic that has been molded to form a deck board.  While the price of composite material can be higher than traditional decking, composite boards offer several unique advantages:

  • Increased Durability
  • Decreased Maintenance
  • Fade Resistance
  • Increased Color Selection
  • Stain Resistant

Capped vs. Non-Capped Composite Decking

When purchasing composite decking you may need to decide between a capped and non-capped product.  Both materials are made from recycled materials but a capped product is covered in a thin PVC plastic that has been bonded to the composite material.  A ‘capped’ product may result in increased durability.
