Discover the Benefits of Composite Decking!
Long the go to material, wood is increasingly being replaced by composite decking as the material of choice for outdoor spaces. Designed to deliver incredible durability, easy maintenance and lasting beauty, composite decking offers all the beauty of wood without the hassles of continuous upkeep.
Composite decking has grown in popularity over the past few years it’s a simple, no-fuss option in more ways than one, which continues to be a top favorite for builders.
Today’s homeowners want to spend their time enjoying their outdoor living spaces rather than maintaining them. High-performance composite decking stands up to weather and day-to-day wear far better than wood. It’s also made from recycled content, which makes it an ideal choice for today’s eco-conscious consumers.
Here are key advantages of using composite decking:
Durability: Composite decking is designed for maximum durability. It resists fading, staining, scratching and mold, and won’t rot, crack or warp. It’s also insect-proof and splinter-free, making it safer and more comfortable for families with kids and pets.
Low-maintenance: With composite decking, you never need to worry about sanding, staining or painting. Just an occasional soap-and-water cleaning is all that’s needed to maintain stability and beauty for decades. Our decking even comes with a 30-year Fade and Stain Warranty, ensuring that it will continue to look and perform as well as the first day it was installed.
Aesthetics: Featuring high-definition wood grain patterns and rich, saturated colors, composite decking looks and feels more natural than ever before. Color options range from deep earth tones to spicy reds and pristine greys, including tropically-inspired boards that feature the distinct streaked look of exotic hardwoods. In addition to the range of decking looks available, homeowners also can find a wide selection of composite accessories, such as railings, stairs, gates, pergolas and furniture, to create a truly customized outdoor space.
Sustainability: Composite decking provides the look and feel of wood without the environmental impact. The deck boards are made using recycled content, including reclaimed industrial wood scraps and recycled plastic from common items such as shopping bags and newspaper sleeves.
Value: Although the initial cost of composite decking can be higher, when you factor in the cost of ongoing maintenance required with a wood deck. Their value becomes unmatched.
Upkeep: Composite decking is made of a mix of waste wood or cellulose fibre and plastic, so typically it requires only an occasional cleaning. The same goes for new non-wood railings offered in a variety of materials, including composite, vinyl, glass and metal. As well as being quick and easy to clean, you don’t need to paint, stain or seal it.
Strong Warranties: Lengthy warranties on composites guarantee enduring good looks and offer additional peace of mind. In fact, our decking is backed by a 30-year Fade and Stain Warranty, which is unprecedented in the industry—resulting in the ultimate assurance of lasting beauty. When planning an outdoor living space, an important consideration for homeowners is cost. As with many things in life, you get what you pay for.
Color Retention and Uniformity: Many people choose composite decks because of their uniform color. Since the boards are manufactured from a batch of mixed material, each board has the same look as the next.
Pest Free: When it comes to standard wood materials, homeowners are often faced with fighting off bugs. Without properly infused wood, these pests can result in wood rot, mold, unwanted growths, and other negative outcomes. Composite decking, however, is resistant to bugs and will not mold or decay over time.
Easy installation: Another perk of composite decks is that the installation is relatively easy. Wood decks can be a bit tricky and a hassle to install. Composite decks, on the other hand, come without the same hassle that wood decks have when it comes to installation
