Advantages of Composite Decking

columbus oh treated wood deck after iii-323-600-450-80When you think about installing and enjoying a deck, you should think about the work of maintaining the beauty of it for years to come. You can choose to go with a traditional wood deck, but you might not like what kind of up-keep comes along with it. If that is the case, you could go a different route and enjoy the advantages of composite decking all while enjoying the look of a wood deck. 


The advantages of composite decking over traditional wood are very large. Composite decking is made from a mix of wood flour, plastic and stabilizing additives. This mixture leaves the owner of the deck with a low maintenance master piece that will last decades longer than what a wood deck would. Composite decking does not fade due to sun damage, it does not have to be painted, sealed or stained. It can be washed throughout the years very easily with soap and water and is slip and splinter free.


More advantages of composite decking is it will not absorb or give off moisture, and that perk alone will help your deck from becoming subjected to insect infestation. Also since you don't have to worry about the absorption of moisture you will not have to worry about the material cracking, warping or separating like you would if you had a wood deck.


You may have concerns about installation of a composite deck, but there is no need. One of the biggest advantages of composite decking is the installation process is the exact same as if you were installing a wood deck. Screws, nails, saws, drills and hammers are the common tools you use for wood deck assembly, and installing composite material is no different. The one down-side to using composite decking is it will probably be a little more expensive, but most likely throughout the years of maintenance and up-keep on a wood deck, the extra money you will spend will be well worth it in the long-run and will pay off in the end, not only in cash but also in manual labor. And if you choose to go with composite material, shopping for it is as easy as shopping for wood material. In most cases, you will be able to find what you need at your local home improvement store.
