What is Composite Decking?
Also called synthetic decking or low-maintenance decking, the term “composite
decking” refers to a group of decking options that are man-made
and typically comprised of wood fibers, recycled plastics, and various
resins. There are numerous types and styles of composite decking available;
however, the vast majority fall into one of two different categories:
Cellular PVC or
Cellular PVC decking is made entirely from cellular PVC, which is an extremely
durable and dense plastic material. PVC decking generally boasts the greatest
resistance to scratching and fading and is most often accompanied by the
longest warranty coverage.
Capped composite (also referred to as
Capstock) is different from Cellular PVC in that it is not solid PVC; it is manufactured
with a composite core wrapped in a cellular PVC shell. The PVC gives it
the durability of fully synthetic decking while using a more cost-effective
recycled interior. Given its structure, capped composite decking is typically
more affordable than the solid PVC products, while still offering the
same excellent scratch and fade protections.
AZEK are our preferred manufacturers for composite decking. Beautiful color
25 and 30-year warranties, and a long history of client satisfaction with Timbertech and AZEK’s
high-quality products are just a few of the reasons why we recommend them.
Timbertech was previously known for their capped composite quality and AZEK was more
known for their fully synthetic decking line, but the two are now under
the same ownership, which makes for a perfect partnership in creating
the best composite deck material available.
