Maintenance-Free Decking: PVC vs. Composite | Family Handyman

Composite decking has been around since the early ’90s. Many popular brands are made from 50 percent wood fibers and 50 percent recycled plastic. Composite decking is a solid color all the way through, so the ends of boards are not as noticeable. It’s stiffer than PVC decking boards and can span greater distances.【Get Price】

Composite vs uPVC Decking – EnviroBuild

WPC (Wood Polymer Composite) and uPVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) decking won’t warp or rot unlike traditional wood decking because they don’t absorb water, which also means they are highly slip-resistant. They don’t need cleaning, painting and staining unlike timber which requires regular upkeep.【Get Price】

Composite vs. PVC Decking: Which One is Best?

Both composite and PVC decking are made from recycled products with composite decking being made from wood and plastic and PVD decking being made from 100% plastic. As all of these materials are recycled both types of decking could be seen as fairly sustainable but surprisingly PVC is actually more sustainable.【Get Price】

The Differences Between Composite and PVC Decking - Decks Docks

Both composite and PVC decking materials can be either capped or uncapped. Uncapped decking is the more cost-effective choice, but it is also more vulnerable to staining and mold growth if not carefully maintained. Capped decking offers extra protection in the form of a hard outer shell. Capping is not an add-on.【Get Price】
