What is Composite Decking?

Composite Decking – Wood Polymer and Low Maintenance Alternatives to Wood

Wood-polymer composites have rapidly become the fastest-growing decking material for residential use in the past 20 years. Commonly referred to as composite decking, wood alternatives, or plastic decking. Low maintenance decking are eco-friendly alternatives to traditional wood that blend current plastics technology with traditional and nontraditional materials.

Composite deck boards are made of an inner core and a bonded external capstock that make them strong, resistant to moisture, weathering, and fading. Capped composite and capped polymer boards, unlike wood, utilize higher-end materials, manufacturing processes and technology to provide superior deck performance. Today most manufacturers incorporate a high level of recycling throughout their processing.

Advantages of Composite Decking

Prevents Weathering, Warping, Splintering, or Fading
When exposed to the great outdoors, capped composite and capped polymer deck boards are less vulnerable to the erosion, bleaching, and overall degeneration that conventional wood undergoes. To keep colours dynamic, moisture out and structural integrity intact, manufacturers cover the internal deck board structure with a protective proprietary capstock.

Industry-Leading Warranties
Sunsational Decks believe in decks that can stand the test of time, which is why we lead the sector not only in beautiful composite decking products but also in dedication to their premium results. In reality, we have enormous confidence in the composite decking materials and we work with the worlds best manufacturers to deliver industry leading guarantees.

Low Maintenance & High-Value
At least every three years, traditional wood decks need to be maintained and replaced every 12 to 15 years, a labor-intensive (and costly) process. Sanding, pressure washing, staining, it really is never-ending processes. Wood just doesn’t compare to composite decking when it comes to durability. Although the initial cost of a composite deck may be higher than that of a wood deck, a composite deck can end up paying for itself in a matter of years once you factor in time and money saved in maintenance.

Aesthetic Variety That Doesn’t Sacrifice Performance
Based on the species of lumber used, traditional wood has different hardness rankings and responds differently to its environment. That means you may have to sacrifice the look that you want to account for the material’s softness and/or variability. Today’s low maintenance decking products offer variety of colour and aesthetics that goes beyond simply choosing a stain colour. 

Sustainable Decking
Today most manufacturers are incorporating greater levels of material recycling in their processing to reduce waste.
