These days, capped composite decking has become very popular among homeowners who want to spend their free time relaxing rather than doing maintenance work around the house. Specifically, capped composite decking is a low-maintenance alternative to traditional wooden decking, and there are a number of reasons you may want to consider it for your own home if you value your free time. Here are a few of the benefits of capped composite decking for you to consider.
No Need to Stain or Seal
Unlike with a traditional wooden deck, capped composite decking comes completely finished, with no need to stain, seal, or paint…ever! If you’ve ever had to spend a weekend sanding, staining, and sealing an old wooden deck, then you know just how frustrating and physically demanding of a project this can be.
No Risk of Rot or Infestation
Because capped composite decking materials look like timber but are a mixture of timber, plastics and resins, you also never have to worry about them becoming susceptible to dry rot or even insect infestation, such as that from termites or white ants.
Easy and Quick Installation
Unlike timber decks, which must be pre-drilled, nailed and screwed on-site and painstakingly pieced together, a capped composite deck is very easy and quick to install. In fact, many capped composite deck owners have found that they have been able to install their own decks as a DIY project rather than having to hire a professional to do it for them.
No Worries About Splinters
When you go with a composite deck, you’ll never have to worry about getting painful splinters in your feet when you walk around your deck barefoot again. Instead, the capped composite material of your deck will stay nice and smooth for years and years without splintering, cracking, or warping.
These are just a few of the main benefits of capped composite decking over a traditional timber deck. Interested in finding out more or pricing out a beautiful capped composite deck for you? Feel free to contact us today for more information!
