Composite decking is a building material used in the same way and for the same purposes as traditional wooden decking. This modern decking is made from a variety of materials. Some are created completely from PVC plastic; others are composed of a combination of recycled plastics and wood fibers.
The manufacturing methods used to create composite decking varies by brand, as well. One is compression molding, which yields solid planks of composite material. Other composite decking is created through an extrusion process, which presses the raw materials through shaping molds to achieve the desired shape and size.
It’s also important to note that some composite lumber is hollow and requires end-caps for board end coverage, while others are solid boards that are cut and fitted like traditional lumber.
Composite decking products, in all their variety, have become an increasingly popular building material. They tend to be durable and long-lasting, resistant to warping, water damage, insect damage, and the other rigors of an exterior application. Which product is right for your current project will depend on a number of factors. Our team at Dock and Deck Supply are happy to discuss the products we carry so you can make an educated decision.

Some products are installed with screws or nails driven through the top of the board, while others use a hidden fastener system for a cleaner look.
