The Benefits of a Composite Deck

You want to be sure that when you build a deck in your backyard, it holds up against all of the elements and looks great for years to come. Durante offers composite decking, and there are many reasons why you want to consider it over standard wooden decking.

What is Composite Decking Made From?

From the moment you touch composite decking, you will notice that it’s different. It’s made up of wood as well as plastic. This means that it is completely unique from the wood that you are used to seeing for decks. It can provide you with any design that you want, and you won’t have to worry about the stripping, sanding or sealing that goes along with standard wood.

It is the material that lends to all of the benefits. While pressure-treated deck boards were popular for many years, composite decking has become the more popular choice now, and homeowners around the country are seeing its benefits.

No Cleaning or Stripping

Caring for a deck has to be taken into consideration. If you have ever had a standard wooden deck, you know that you typically have to strip it every few years and reseal it so that it continues to look great. This takes time and money. With a composite deck, there is no need for stripping, sanding or sealing.

Additionally, it’s very easy to clean. A wooden deck involves a lot of scrubbing to get dirt and sap off as well as various other things that spill onto the wood and are absorbed into it. Because a composite deck is made of a synthetic material, it cleans up a lot easier. In many instances, you will be able to hose it down to clean off any dirt.

No Splinters

Composite decking isn’t going to warp, so you won’t have to worry about the presence of splinters, even over long periods of time. This makes it a joy to hang out on for hours on end, and you and your guests can lean against the railing without fear of getting a splinter. Kids can also run around on the deck without fear of getting a splinter or any other injury from unexpected sharp wooden edges.

Durante can show you how to get a great looking composite deck for you to enjoy for countless years to come.
