Composite decking is a wood alternative decking solution. It has quickly become the largest timber deck alternative on the market.
So, what exactly is composite decking? Why is it so popular?
Composite decking is a man-made product made up of a mix of wood fibers, plastics, and bonding agents. The heated mix is formed into board shaped lengths and then cooled. The boards are 100% waterproof and are unaffected by moisture or the sun. It is completely maintenance free as they are scratch resistant and will not stain or fade! The boards are also virtually unbreakable under load or impact.
What about benefits of composite decking?
You can easily see why composite decking is becoming extremely popular. Yes, the cost is higher for the initial installation of the deck compared to hardwoods or pine. However, if you are wishing to own your property long term it is a great solution.
We have many clients who have had their composite down for 15 years and it still looks as brand new as day 1. They have not needed to do any maintenance on their deck and are not planning to one day replace the decking boards.
What are the best composite decking brands?
Here at KS Fence & Deck we use the composite decking brand ‘Voyage’ from Permadeck. It is the most advanced, premium wood-alternative composite decking product on the market today. Voyage decking has virtually no thermal expansion or contraction like other brands have and is ideal for installation in the ground or water. It also features textured embossing for enhanced traction – perfect for wet weather conditions and around pools.
