Eco-Friendly and Sustainable Option

Many homeowners are increasingly conscious of the environmental impact of their choices, and composite decking is a sustainable option.

Most composite materials are made from recycled plastics and wood fibers, which reduces the need for new timber and repurposes materials that would otherwise end up in landfills.

Composite decking typically has a much longer lifespan than traditional wood decking. On average, quality composite decking can last anywhere from 25 to 30 years without the need for extensive maintenance. In contrast, traditional wood decks may require replacement or significant repairs within 10 to 15 years, depending on the wood type and maintenance. The longevity of composite decking is due to its resistance to rot, decay, and insect damage, which are common issues with wood decks.

Many potential deck owners are concerned about safety, especially in wet conditions. Composite decking is designed with safety in mind and often includes slip-resistant properties. The material’s composition and surface texture can provide better grip and reduce the risk of slipping compared to traditional wood, especially when wet. However, like any outdoor surface, caution should be exercised in wet conditions. Some brands offer specific ‘non-slip’ composite decking options for areas where safety is a primary concern, like around pools.

One of the appealing aspects of composite decking is its minimal maintenance requirements, including no need for painting or staining. The color and finish of composite decking are manufactured to last, resisting fading and staining over time. Therefore, painting or staining is generally not recommended or necessary. If you desire a different color or finish after some years, it’s important to check with the manufacturer’s guidelines as applying paint or stain can void warranties and may not adhere well to the composite material.

Initially, composite decking tends to be more expensive than traditional wood decking. However, considering the long-term expenses, composite decking can be more cost-effective. Wood decks require regular maintenance, including sanding, staining, and sealing, which adds up over time. Composite decking, on the other hand, requires minimal maintenance, saving money and effort in the long run. While the upfront cost is higher, the durability and lower maintenance requirements of composite decking make it a financially savvy choice over time.
