Low Maintenance, Man-made, Synthetic, Composite Decking: Various Names for the Ultimate Choice
Synthetic materials such as composite decking are the fasting growing segment of the decking market and are the most popular choice for lower maintenance decks. These materials have a similar appearance and feel to wood, with some offering realistic grain finishes, often with a slip resistant surface that’s very comfortable under foot. Composite decking, for instance, combines wood and plastic for maximum durability and attractiveness. There are a wide range of natural color choices available to coordinate with any home. In fact, a composite deck is an ideal element to consider when planning an exterior design project.
Environmentally Friendly, Low Maintenance Decks Save You Time
While they will require periodic cleaning to remove environmental dirt, structures made from composite decking and other man-made materials require far less maintenance than other decking materials. They are considered to be environmentally friendly, “green” building products, as most are made with recycled or reclaimed materials. They are extremely durable and come with warranty coverage not offered with traditional decking materials.
