We believe composite decks are an excellent option for virtually any swimming pool. They offer a stylish and modern alternative to concrete and wooden surfaces. Our composite decks are durable and resistant to wear and tear. They are also waterproof and require minimal maintenance – unlike wood decks, they won’t splinter or rot. Another upside: Composite decks are made from recycled materials and thus environmentally friendly – reducing your need to cut down trees for lumber.

What Are Some Benefits of Using Composite Decking Around A Pool in Raleigh-Durham

1. Lasting Durability. Composite decking is not easily affected by water or pool chemicals, which makes it a hardy material to use next to pools. An article published on the MultiBriefs: Exclusive website examined boardwalks in “Hurricane Alley” built with capped composite decking and found them to be durable enough to withstand years of water and humidity.

2. Beauty & Fade-Resistance. Composite decking is available in a range of beautiful colors and is fade-resistant from the sun’s UV rays. So — while you may see very slight color fading over the long-term — for the most part, your pool deck will retain its original beauty and color over the years. When choosing a color for your composite decking, one thing to keep in mind is that darker colors may become warm to touch during the height of summer heat. Choosing a lighter color helps to ensure that the decking retains less heat, as with concrete.

3. Safety & Comfort. Composite decking does not splinter, which is extremely important around a swimming pool, where children and adults will be walking with bare feet. Also, many composite decking boards are textured to be slip-resistant when wet, making them less slick than pressure-treated wood or smooth concrete when wet.
