What is better to use in a high-volume deck, real or composite wood? Based on that what are the benefits of the better choice?
Composite wood is a manufactured material made from recycled plastic, wood chips, sawdust, and other scrap products. The materials are compressed under intense heat and pressure to create a long-lasting, waterproof, maintenance-free product that’s superior to wood in durability.
Composite is the better choice for a high-volume deck that will need to support a lot of weight and activity, and many argue that it’s the better choice for any exterior deck or patio surface. The planks don’t require routine sanding and staining for protection, hold more weight, last much longer, and can be replaced locally just like wooden planks if necessary.
