Composite decking, or synthetic wood products, come in a plethora of variations, which is nice for a more customized design: from solid boards to hollow, from “capped” to “co-extruded,” to including a layer of PVC or not. Some also require multiple components for assembly and installation, while others are more like building with wood. What is common to all is they are made with recycled fibers, plastics, and binding agents. Contract Exteriors constructs composite decks in Myrtle Beach, Charleston, Hilton Head, Raleigh, and surrounding areas.
Most often, composites come in a plank or board form, like treated wood, and are available in a variety of earth tones and wood colors – and can even have wood grains added. And now, you also have the option of composite deck tiles. If you don’t want to completely replace your existing wood deck, you can use these tiles to cover the entire area.
Benefits of Composite Board Decks:
- Like vinyl decking, composite decking is pre-finished. While the boards create the appearance of real wood decks, they don’t need staining or painting, and require little maintenance. In fact, dirt can be washed off with a mild detergent and a hose once in a while.
- Composites are environmentally friendly. Up to 95 percent of materials used to manufacture them are from recycled sources, such as wood flour, rice hulls, and plastic bags or containers.
- They’re durable, long-lasting and won’t rot away (like wood).
