Preferred Decking Materials

Beautiful decking is one of the best things you can do for your home. Installing decking around your home can add natural beauty, warmth, and desirability, and has to be one of the best decisions you can make when it comes to deciding on the style of your home. Decking is durable, hard wearing and good looking. And stunning decking will add value to your home as well.

Decking materials made from finely ground wood fiber mixed with polymer resin have been in use for almost two decades. While these wood-plastic composites (WPCs) have generally established a good track record, they have not always lived up to owners’ expectations of a truly maintenance-free product.

One of the big challenges for manufacturers is that their raw materials are highly variable, so the products they output are variable. The raw materials are wood flour – essential sweepings from the lumber mill floor – and (at least partially) recycled plastics from sources such as old bottles and bags. Decking material options have grown exponentially over the past several years and it’s up to you to decide which one offers the features that you are desire the most and that fits within your budget. No matter which one you choose, DeckSource is here to help! Here are some recommended woods and composite decking options.
