A Closer Look at Composite Decking

When composite decking first was introduced in 1990, many people were turned off by the cost and the fact that it was only available in one color. Today, those are no longer issues, and composite decking is becoming a more popular choice for homeowners. Durability, low maintenance and versatility are the main reasons.

Composite decking now comes in a wide array of colors and designs. Composite decking even is available in colors that look like expensive, high-quality wood. While it is more expensive than traditional treated wood decking, its durability and low maintenance more than make up for the added expense. There is no annual painting, staining or bleaching.

Composite decking is environmentally friendly, as it is made from recycled materials like plastic milk cartons, saw dust, and plastic grocery bags. Because it is made of these materials, it will last for a much longer period of time than wood decks. It also maintains its color no matter what weather conditions it is exposed to. Even in the hot Nashville summers, there is no reason to worry about warped boards.


Because composite decking doesn’t splinter like wood, it is much safer for bare feet. Unlike treated lumber, the material is less prone to get slippery when wet. You’ll also like the fact that composite decking comes in longer lengths, minimizing seams in your decking. Composite decking also comes with great warranties.
