Advantages of Composite Decking


  1. Composite decking requires less maintenance than wood decking.

    wood-vs-fiberon-less-maintenanceComposite decking is a lot like pre-finished flooring. It arrives as a finished product and never needs sanding, staining, or painting — just an occasional soap and water cleaning. Wood needs to be finished after installation and then refinished every 1-2 years, meaning you’ll be spending a significant amount of time and elbow grease maintaining that deck.

  2. Composite decking costs less over its lifetime than does wood and lasts longer, too.

    wood-vs-fiberon-long-lastingWhile pressure-treated lumber may cost less initially, maintenance costs are significantly higher. On average, maintaining a wood deck will cost $450-$850.o0 per year. Composite decking? Just $5-$15 annually. What’s more, wood decks are susceptible to mold, decay and insects (not to mention Mother Nature) and have a shorter lifespan. Composites retain their good looks year after year. So that new deck look you love is the look you’ll keep. Composite decking materials are eco-friendly and toxin-free.

  3. wood-vs-fiberon-eco-friendlyComposite decking is made from locally-sourced recycled plastic, lumber mill scraps and other materials. Using these materials means we prevent more than 70,000 tons of plastic and other waste from ending up in landfills or incinerators every year. Plus, our composites prevent further deforestation, do not contain the toxic chemicals often found in pressure-treated lumber, and are manufactured in a process that produces zero water waste
  4. Composite decking is safer.

  5. Composite decking looks like natural wood.
