Composite decking offers the beauty of wood without the drawbacks of potential corroding, splintering or termite damage. This low-maintenance decking alternative holds up to the temperature extremes of Canadian weather with minimal thermal expansion and contraction to maximize the stability of each deck board.
Each composite decking brand offers a variety of colours, shades, patterns, widths and lengths. Although construction techniques differ for composite decking compared to traditional wood decking, composite boards are installed on a pressure-treated lumber sub-structure for a new deck or replacement. The material cuts and drills like wood and is easy to install.
Composed mainly of either wood flour (a recycled post-industrial material), PVC or wood fibres and polyethylene, composite decking is smooth to the touch and barefoot-friendly. Composite decking also provides excellent traction.
Premium resin decking is composed of 100% low-maintenance engineered polymer material, which does not contain any wood fibres or organic material. Resin decking is 100% recyclable and completely resistant to mould, mildew, bacteria and termites.
