At Cottonwood Custom LLC we’re proud to offer composite decking as an option for your custom deck. It’s the fastest growing wood deck alternative in Cottonwood Heights and on the market and eco-friendly as well. Made of 95% recycled materials, there are now more than 50 different composite decking products available.
A durable, long-lasting and low-maintenance option, composite decks also will not develop wood rot and mold so you don’t have to worry about them falling into disrepair in that fashion. Especially if you are aiming for an outdoor living space, composite decking is a great option as it can better mimic indoor rooms than classic wood decking.
What is a Composite Deck?
Composite wood decking is made of wood and plastic. Under this umbrella, it can be composed of sawdust, wood chips, and wood fiber pieces as well as new or recycled plastics. Since composite decks are made mainly of recycled materials, it’s deemed the most environmentally friendly option.
You can purchase composite decking in any color you can imagine and use it to create unique custom decks—anything you can imagine, we can create! The two most popular types of composite decking are:
If you have any experience with decking you’ll be aware that splintering and cracking is a concern. With capped composite decking, these things cannot occur. This is because of a surface product applied to make them stronger, and repel moisture.
Uncapped composite decking was the first generation of composite material. Compared to capped, they are more vulnerable to staining and even mildew!
Both capped and uncapped composite decks are excellent options that are superior to a classic wood deck.
But Does it Last?
One point our Cottonwood Heights clients consider when choosing decking material is the staying power of a wood deck. Even though it requires regular upkeep you can argue that wood decks do last for many years—some up to 25.
Wooden decks are a great option if you want something more rustic, but a composite deck is the way of the future. Without regular maintenance, a wooden deck will last 10 to 15 years, but a composite deck, with its extreme resistance to the elements, will last 25 to 30 years longer!
A wooden deck, while it may be more affordable, will cost you more in the long run.
