What are composite decks?
One of the most popular and fastest growing industries in decking materials is with composite decks. They are made from a combination of materials, usually wood and plastic. These materials are processed in a way that makes them look like real wood.
One thing that makes composite decks an attractive choice for homeowners like you is that they are a “green” product. They are often made of recycled materials. The wood is actually sawdust, wood chips, and wood fibers. The plastic can also be recycled materials.
Benefits of composite decks
Composite decks installed by Triad Installations are a convenient alternative to people who do not have time to maintain their decks. Wood decks require a great deal of care to keep it looking good. You have to sand, stain, and reseal your wooden decks every year or two. Besides the cost and time involved, you have to wait for the right weather conditions for the products to dry. All of these issues add up to a lot of work for your deck.
Composite decks do not require painting or staining. They resist rot and they do not warp like wood. You will not get splinters from touching the deck rails or walking in bare feet. Manufacturers add a pigment for the color of the wood and a preservative to make it last without extra care. These preservatives can last up to twenty years in the decks.
Composite decking and its cousin, plastic lumber, represent the fastest-growing decking materials sold today. Most products are made from polyethylene or polyvinyl chloride, and come in a wide range of colors. Composites, like Trex, TimberTech, Correct Deck, Fiberon, Azek and Veranda, to name a few, are composed primarily of wood fibers and recycled plastic. The result is an extremely weather- and stain-resistant board that won’t splinter, warp, rot or split.
There are only two types of comp­osite decking on the market: solid and hollow. Solid is more like wood and is heavier than the hollow version. Because of its greater mass, solid decking will expand and contract more with temperature fluctuations.
Hollow composite decking has a more man-made look. However, it won’t expand and contract as much as solid composite decking. Solid composite decking is more popular because of its superior strength and closer resemblance to real wood
