Are you considering having a new deck built at your home? You’ve certainly got some options. Gone are the days of wood being the only choice for building a deck. Composite decks have grown tremendously in popularity over the years, making them among the top choices for decking materials. While wood is certainly a staple and has its own advantages, it’s hard to compete with the many benefits of composite decking, which include:
1. Superior Durability
In order for a deck to be worth the cost, it needs to be durable. Plus, if it’s going to be the location of many family gatherings, it needs to be ultra strong to bear the weight of people, furniture, and family pets. You can expect this with a composite deck, as they are constructed out of multiple materials for exceptional strength and resistance to wear and tear over the years.
2. Minimal Maintenance
Since composite decking won’t break down and rot over time like wood, it requires little upkeep. It doesn’t even need to be restained or repainted! You’ll most likely just need to hose it down or power wash it occasionally to keep it looking its best.
3. Environmentally Friendly
No trees are harmed in the making of composite decks! Since a majority of them are made from recycled or scrap materials, there is virtually no environmental impact—especially compared to wood decks which require a decent amount of lumber.
4. More Color Choices
While wood decks can be stained in a decent amount of finishes or painted, it will likely require some touch ups or fresh coats over time. Meanwhile, composite decking can be crafted in a wide assortment of colors and finishes, all of which will retain their hue.
5. No Splinters
You can confidently walk across composite decking while barefoot without worrying about any splinters! This is good news for you, the kids, and even your pets.
