Composite decking offers long lasting durability without the threat of fading or splintering. Composite materials do not rot or attract insects, and can be manufactured in longer lengths, which may simplify construction.
Composite Decking Material
Contrary to popular belief composite decking boards are eco-friendly and typically consist of recycled materials. Reclaimed plastic is mixed with wood fibers, bamboo or other fillers to create a composite decking material that is long-lasting and ensures harmful plastics stay out of landfills for years to come. Composite decks are resistant to fading and mold, and are usually faster to install than other materials because of their convenient interlocking construction.
