Composite decking materials offer several advantages over other materials.
When it comes to decking materials, there are a few options out there. Most people choose between either building a wood deck or choosing composite decking, which is made of wood pulp and recyclable plastic fibers that are fused together. At Glenn Gate Construction, we are starting to see more and more of our clients request composite decking for their decking choice. Composite decking has several great benefits to the material that our customers love, including:
- Low maintenance– Composite decking doesn’t fade, split, rot or warp. The colors are incorporated into the materials, so you don’t have to worry about re-staining or painting your deck on a regular basis. Composite decking gives you the look that you want in a deck without the worry or maintenance that you don’t.
- Safe– Wood decking materials can sometimes be saturated with chemicals intended to keep bugs and insects from chewing through the wood, which you won’t find with composite decking. Because composite decking doesn’t splinter, you can walk in it freely in bare feet. It also won’t hold onto heat like wood decking does, so your feet won’t burn on the hot summer days.
- Long-lasting– Because bugs have no interest in composite decking and the weather can’t ruin it with rain or humidity, composite decking has a very, very long lifespan!
