Composite decking is created by mixing polyethyle with wood fiber, rice hulls or other fillers as well as a blend of chemical additives. Most low maintenance decking planks are available in 5/4x6 dimensional boards in 12', 16' and 20' lengths. Some composite products are hollow and others are solid.
PVC or vinyl decking has become a popular alternative to composite decking in recent years. Some composite companies have created new products that encapsulate the composite material with a thin layer of PVC capstock for a hardened exterior shell that protects the material from stain, mildew, scratching and UV fading. As the material is extruded it is usually given a textured surface for slip resistance and appearance. Some products have reversible boards that have a wood grain side and a brushed finished side.

Capped Composite Decking Benefits
Decking Roof Tiles
Capped Wood Composite Decking is designed to stand up to the elements, allowing it to maintain its beauty for years. There is no need to paint, stain or seal it, which is often a burdensome yearly project with traditional wood decks. And, because capped wood composite decking resists most weathering, warping, and bugs, you won’t find it necessary to replace rotting, uneven, or insect-damaged boards.
Unlike many traditional wood decks, capped wood plastic composite decks are splinter-free and slip-resistant, making your home a little safer for bare feet, small children and pets
Traditional wood decks can be beautiful, but not for long. Wet springs, blistering summers and frigid winters quickly take their toll, leaving some wood decks faded, splintered and warped. Capped wood composite decking is made from a process that results in consistent, low-maintenance decking performance with warranties you can count on.
Capped wood composite manufacturers offer a variety of color choices – many that even emulate the look of traditional lumber or exotic hardwood. In addition, you can also find deck accessoriesranging from railing, handrails, gates, and post caps to deck lighting, all designed to complete your outdoor living space and complement and enhance the beauty and safety of the deck.
