Composite decking is a type of engineered deck board made with a blend of organic wood flakes and plastic. Composite deck boards can be partially or fully encapsulated, meaning the boards are covered on three or four sides. This outer capping ensures the boards are protected from mildew and rot, and they will not fade from the sun.

How long does composite decking last?

Its durable construction, consisting of a blend of wood fibers and recycled plastic, resists rot, decay, and insect damage, ensuring a long-lastingoutdoor living space that withstands the test of time.

Should I choose grooved-edge or square-edge deck boards?

If you install grooved-edge boards, you won't see any screws because they use hidden deck fasteners, which some homeowners prefer. Or you can use screws to install solid-edge boards, but there is one installation warning that goes with this method: If the screws aren’t flat against the decking, furniture legs and shoes can catch on them. If you use the screwed-down method to install the decking, you might want to fill the holes with a small round plug that matches the deck. Whichever type of deck installation you choose, it's important to have a space between the boards for proper drainage.

How long are composite decking boards?

Composite deck boards measure 5/4" thick x 6" wide and come in lengths of 12 ft., 16 ft., and 20 ft. The composite materials are easy to cut, so you can trim the longer boards to the size you need to fill in shorter porch or deck areas.

Is composite decking worth the cost?

If all the benefits and data listed above don't convince you that your new deck should be constructed with composite boards and railings, then consider this: when you account for the rest of the costs associated with maintaining a wood deck (that already will have a shorter lifespan!), composite decking comes out ahead as a better value.
