Unlike composite future wood decking, will last a long time if properly treated. In fact, a deck made of pressure-treated wood can be expected to last for 20 years or more.
In addition to durability, wood also looks good – it’s naturally beautiful and it can easily be customized with a variety of design elements such as railings and stairs. Plus, it’s environmentally friendly and doesn’t require the use of harmful chemicals.
However, as with any material, there are certain drawbacks to using wood. A common one is that wood can splinter or warp if not properly cared for.
This is why many people choose to install a low-maintenance alternative like composite decking. It has a plastic coating that helps keep color and texture in while keeping the elements out.
Another benefit to choosing a low-maintenance option is that it will save you money in the long run. It’s much easier to maintain than a wood deck, and it will save you money on staining, sealing and cleaning throughout the life of the deck.
A newly released capped composite decking board from Futurewood called CleverDeck Xtreme is available in vibrant colored hues with subtle streaking for a totally new decking look. It has a blend of virgin polymers that completely encapsulate the traditional composite-timber core to make it super tough and hard to scratch.
