Composite decking: 

Composite decking has become a more popular choice among residential homes through-out Calgary and surrounding areas, this is because it’s high durability, no maintenance and the choices of colors. This type of decking is more upfront then wood materials. Where you save money is on the maintenance such as, staining or painting as well as replacing boards from splintering.

While a wood deck is cheaper to build, it will cost you more year to year for upkeep. With composite decking simple spray down with your garden hose now and again is all it needs.

The only disadvantages of the composite decking is the price up front and that it can grow mold under the floor boards over time.
