Any upgrade you make to your home should be an investment, including a deck. This will most likely become your family’s favorite outdoor spot and serve as the gathering place for many barbecues and warm-weather celebrations for years to come, so you want it to be long-lasting. Composite has become known as a durable decking material, but exactly how long do composite decks last? With the right maintenance and care, a composite deck can last you a lifetime.
What Makes Composite so Durable?
By definition, composite materials are ‘made up of various parts and elements’. So, the composite used for decking is often a combination of different materials like synthetic and recycled fibers. This greatly differs from traditional wood decks, which are built with pressure-treated lumber. Despite being specially treated to combat the effects of the outdoors, wood decking can still potentially deteriorate over time. Composite, on the other hand:
Resists Any Sort of Damage
Since your deck will constantly be exposed to outdoor elements, it needs to be able to withstand years of exposure and various weather conditions. You can count on your composite deck to do just that, as it will be resistant to rotting, warping, or splintering over time.
Is a Low-Maintenance Material
Since your composite deck won’t fade or discolor over time, you won’t have to perform any upkeep like restaining or repainting it. Occasionally hosing off or power washing your deck should be enough maintenance to keep it clean.
