Composite Decking Benefits

Wood alternatives like composite decking provide you with a variety of benefits that regular wood can’t compete with, such as:

Low MaintenanceThe Benefits of Composite Decks, Quaker State Construction

Wooden decks require regualr pressure washing, staining or painting, and other maintenance to remain in good condition. A composite deck, on the other hand, will maintain its color for years without the need for repainting or staining. The only maintenance that a composite deck requires is an occasional scrub down with a mild soap, brush, and warm water.

Long Lifespan

When you invest in your deck, you want to build it out of material that will last for a long time. With composite decking, you are getting a material that will withstand rain, snow, sleet, hail, UV rays, insects, and other harsh elements. Other decking materials can break down easily in these conditions by rotting, splintering, or warping.

Variety of Options

If you are looking for a variety of colors to choose from, look no further than composite decking. With many colors to choose from, you can easily match your deck with your home’s exterior.


Wood decking can seem to cost less upfront, but when you factor in the high maintenance of wood and the replacement board dues to rot or warping, it can cost you more in the long run. Composite decking, due to its low maintenance, is the more cost-effective option.

Sustainable and Environmentally Conscious

Composite decking is composed of reclaimed wood and recycled plastic. This product saves trees and also helps to keep other waste out of the landfills, making it a sustainable decking option.
