We can simplify the many avaibable Decking Options
In today’s market, manufactured decking has become the most popular choice for consumers. There have been many technological advances made with these types of decking and railing materials over the past 15 years. The best news is that manufactured decking materials just keep getting better and better! The main thing to remember is that while these products are very durable and are usually less maintenance than a traditional wood deck, they still require diligent cleaning and some limited care.
There are currently two main types of manufactured decking available: composite and PVC. There is also a third type of decking, a hybrid product, which combines a composite core with a PVC (or similar) outer coating or shell.
There are many different manufacturers of composite decking products, many of whom offer multiple grades or versions in their product line. The differences between these versions are usually cosmetics and/or price point. Most of the major brands will perform similarly over time with regard to color loss, durability, and susceptibility to staining, scratching, etc…
