Composite decking is made from a combination of wood waste and recycled plastic. The result is a material that yields superior strength, longevity and dimensional stability. It lasts longer than ordinary wooden decking, and requires less maintenance. It won’t warp, crack, splinter or rot like wood. And because the composite decking uses wood wastes, no old-growth trees are cut down and plastic is being reused, making this product truly green.
