Advantage of Composite Wood. Boards, planks, structural lumber, and decking made of composite wood tend to be stronger and more versatile than traditional lumber. Composite wood also makes better use of trees. Almost every fiber in the entire tree can be used in the manufacture of composite wood, compared to only
The same foundation of pressure-treated wood is used for both wood and composite decks, but there are several differences between the way wood and composite decking is gapped and supported. Note: There is now a plastic lumber, USPL's TriMax, which can be used for structural applications. However, unless
When it comes to Composite decking VS Wood Decks, great things are happening. Composite We know they are rigid and near structural material, and with a UV coating, UV degradation isn't likely. This is capped
for natural wood. However, composite materials are not load-bearing or structural members and they are not as strong as traditional hardwood. Fig. different mechanical properties within the finished structure. The primary use of this material is for external works such as decks, trellis, screen walls, garden furniture, etc.

When pricing the materials, be sure to figure in the cost of railings, stairs, and supporting structure as well as the planks under foot. If you're Many manufacturers of synthetic decking offer a variety of railings, such as provincial or Mission style, that can help the deck fit with the rest of the house. Sidestep
The advent of composite materials for exterior structures like decks, gazebo floors, privacy screens, arbors and fences has virtually solved these recurring maintenance issues. The new more advanced composite decking, railing and fencing materials are now manufactured with a mixture of vinyl and recycled (non-organic)
