The Benefits of Composite Decking vs. Wood Decking

Summer is right around the corner in the Kansas City area and that not only means Royals games and BBQs, but it also means extra time to spend outside on your deck. However, if you are like most homeowners, there is a good chance your deck could use an upgrade before the season to come. Plus, times (and not to mention materials) have likely changed quite a bit since your deck was originally installed, which gives you the perfect opportunity now with your remodel to experience the full benefits of composite decking.

Composite decking is a type of lumber material that is made up of wood, plastic, and binding agents, and is best known for its many benefits, which include:

Low Maintenance Costs
While traditional wood decking requires staining, sanding, or painting throughout the year, composite decking comes prefinished, and only ever needs cleaned occasionally with soap and water. Plus, composite decking costs less than regular wood decking over the course of its lifespan, since it is resistant to mold, insects, and other decay, helping it to stay in peak condition for longer.

Environmentally Friendly Features
Most composite decking is made with recycled materials – both wood and plastic – cutting down on waste needed to give you your perfect deck. Not to mention, composite decking is toxin-free, ensuring both you and your home are healthy for a lifetime.

Thanks to the same long-lasting technology that makes composite decking resistant to decay, this durable material also will not crack or splinter, helping your deck to stay strong and comfortable.

Featuring intricate streaks and grain patterns, composite decking reflects the natural beauty of real wood with ease. Available in a number of shades, composite decking can even display the same beauty as exotic woods for less cost and hassle.

This summer, opt for a deck that will not only look great, but also be an investment you can count on for years to come by using composite materials. Growing in popularity, composite decking is the best way to ensure the outdoor living space you’ve always dreamed of.
