Plastic decking will provide you with a low maintenance solution if you are building a new deck or repairing your old one. The material used in this type of decking does contain wood fiber or sawdust and wither recycled or new plastic. In contrast to traditional wood for decking, plastic never needs to be stained, painted or repaired. There are various colors available in the line of plastic decking. You can have decking that looks just like wood or you can get different solid colors to match the color of your home.

Decking plastic has many advantages over ordinary wood. For one thing it is moisture resistant. Most brands of plastic decking carry a 50-year warranty against decay, rot and damage due to insect infestation. The water resistant composition of plastic decking material helps to protect the wood fibers from any moisture damage. This decking material is well able to withstand the harshest of weather conditions. Even with a build up of ice and snow during the winter, the color will not scrape off.

Whether you want plastic decking for your patio or pool deck, this material is one of the best choices you will ever make concerning your home. It will beautify your outdoor living space and help to increase the value of your home. This plastic wood decking is recyclable and therefore environmentally friendly. It doesn’t matter what type of traffic you have on the plastic decking material – small children running and jumping, wheelchair, bicycles or a crowd of people for a party, the plastic in the decking will not crack or splinter.

You won’t experience any swelling or shrinkage with plastic decking. During the first few months after you install it, you may notice that a little bit of the color has faded from the plastic deck material, but it is very insignificant. This does not constitute a reason to contact the company regarding the warranty because this occurrence is perfectly natural. Like all other materials, plastic wood decking has to get used to the temperature and the weather of your location.

You don’t need any special tools when installing plastic decking. It is recommended that you use screws when fastening the plastic deck material to the wooden deck frame. When you are fastening it using this method, there is no danger of splitting the plastic or ruining the grain. You may have to use corrosion resistant stainless steel screws if you live close to the salt water. If the screws rust, this can mar the beauty of your plastic decking.
