If you want a composite deck and you need deck builders in Laurel, the experts at Diamond Decks can complete the project for you.
What is Composite Decking?
It is made of plastic and wood fiber. The plastic is from new or recycled plastic materials, and the wood fiber is anything from sawdust to wood chips. There are two processes used to create composite decking: compression, and extrusion molding. Compression molding is when the molten materials are compressed under significant heat to give them texture. Extrusion is when plastic and wood fiber are combined and pushed through an opening that produces materials with regular sizes and shapes. You can expect these processes to produce more detailed patterning and richer colors.
The Benefits of Composite Decking
Composite decking is low maintenance, easy to install, and adds value to your home. You won’t have to worry about sanding, sealing, or painting it. To clean it, all you have to do is scrub it with a brush and soapy water. It’s also resistant to weathering, warping, and insect damage. The color won’t fade as it does on unsealed wood decks which is a plus. You can also expect a higher return on your investment when you have composite decking which is something to look forward to. With a slip-resistant and splinter-free surface, it’s safe for you, your children, and pets. The floor will get warm if the temperature outside is hot, but it must be significant. When it comes to designing your deck, you can choose from various styles and colors. Composite decking can mimic the look of hardwood or lumber. You can also find deck accessories that match your deck such as gates, deck lighting, railings, treads, and post caps to include with installation.
