Composite wood, sometimes called engineered wood, is created from wood fibers and other cellulosic materials which are then combined with a stronger binding agent to create a strong, dense, heavier material than natural wood. Types of engineered lumber have given homeowners additional choices when it comes to choosing an attractive option for deck construction. Composite decking can be used in most any climate and on any home.
The growing popularity of using waste materials to create new products began years ago, as companies mixed plastics and adhesives with straw and other waste materials, such as wood chips and shaving the current composite decking material was discovered. These new products offered the look and workability of wood without the necessity of regular maintenance. Even though most decks are typically constructed of pine, redwood, cedar or mahogany, use of composite wood is becoming increasing popular.
Traditional woodworking tools and saw may be used on composite deck material, and pieces can be joined together using nails and screws, without requiring pre-drilling holes. Composite deck boards do not delaminate and do not require seal or stain to be applied annually.
Composite decking materials come pre-finished, and eliminates the need to choosing between painting or staining the decking. Composite materials often cost about the same as treated lumber and composite decking material is available in a wide range of pre-formed pieces that provide for very assembly and tie-in.
Composite decking is available in several options, but the most common options are wood-plastic composite, polypropylene or vinyl extrusion products.
