What you need to know
Decks have traditionally been made of wood. However, after extensive maintenance year after year only to end up with a decomposing unstable deck that has to be replaced merely to start the whole process over again, homeowners began to seek something better.
In the early 1990’s composite decking which blend synthetic resin materials with organic fillers (wood flour, plastic bags, rice hulls, etc.) began to appear. While these products were intended to be a longer lasting and environmentally friendly alternative to wood, it was soon evident the many shortcomings that presented themselves in composite decking such as mold, crumbling, splitting, scratching, fading, and staining. What was worse, composite decking cannot be refinished or recycled leaving the homeowner left with rotting heavy material that will end up in a landfill over time.
