If you’re interested in a new deck in Calgary this year, why not give composite decking a chance?
Homeowners in Calgary and beyond are really starting to realize the benefits of an alternative to wood for their decking, and the best alternative around has got to be composite WPC decking. It’s super simple to maintain, eco-friendly, and, best of all, can last years longer than a natural wood deck.
What is Composite Decking?
Composite decking is a manufactured product made up of wood fibers, plastics, and a small amount of bonding materials. Often, the plastics and wood fibers are recycled from other sources. This makes it a sustainable, eco-friendly alternative to timber decking.
So here are our 4 amazing benefits of composite decking in 2020.
A traditional wooden decking requires maintenance, as with most wooden structures outdoors. It’s often recommended that you perform this essential maintenance at least twice throughout the year, ideally once in spring to prepare for the summer months, and once in the fall to prepare for the colder winter months.
With a composite deck, on the other hand, you’re only going to need some soapy water to maintain your deck at its installed quality over the course of its lifetime. It’s also going to be resistant to stains in a way that natural wood is incapable of being.
Composite decking is built to last. This is seen not only in its ability to resist stains and fading, but the materials it’s made from are much more resistant to things like rot, mould, or other dampness and weather related issues.
On top of being resistant to wet and windy weather, composite decking isn’t going to crack and warp over time if left in inclement weather, the kind of weather we can get in Calgary!
If you’re a family with pets or children, you can also rest safely in the knowledge that composite decking is splinter-free, providing a safer environment for the little ones to run around.
Just like you, we’re interested in materials that are eco-friendly and sustainable. It’s no secret that changing the way we think about the materials we use in construction can only be a good thing in coming decades, and composite decking is the best of both worlds.
Not only will the use of composite decking mean that you’re less likely to have to purchase another deck so soon, from bad weather or rot that wooden decks are susceptible to, but you’re also buying material that has been made to recycle plastics that are often polluting oceans.
Composite decking doesn’t contribute to deforestation in any way, and that’s just a big plus in our books.
If you’re anything like us, you’re interested not only in quality materials and a low-maintenance lifestyle, but you’re interested in living life in style.
Composite decking comes in many colours, textures, and styles so they really appeal to the homeowner with a good eye. You can go for the traditional look and choose an almost perfect match to your favourite wood, or you can go bolder and choose something not normally available.
The best part about the stylistic choices of composite decking is that not only will your home look amazing, it’s going to keep looking amazing for decades.
