Monday, December 05, 2022

Promoting and using composite decking not only can better decorate your yard but also can better protect the environment we live in. Nowadays, more and more people are accepting and choosing this new composite decking material. So, what are the advantages of outdoor composite decking material? Let’s learn more about the advantages of composite decking from COOWIN.

How is COOWIN Composite Decking Manufactured?

COOWIN composite decking is made of 50% of wood fibers, 38% HDPE, and a limited amount of bonding chemicals. We will put This mixture into an extrusion machine, after heating, molding, and lengths cutting, cooling, the composite board is produced. Then, the decking will be taken into post-process, to finish surface treatment. The finished WPC decking boards seem more authentic than plastic substitutes. And while requiring significantly less upkeep than conventional wood decking.

Different Types of Composite Decking Boards

Now COOWIN Provide Both Capped Composite Decking and Uncapped Composite Decking.

Capped and uncapped composite decking are the two varieties. Uncapped boards typically cost less. You can have it for less. Uncapped composite decking has the same texture as real wood, and looks more concise. Although the uncapped composite decking material is durable and resistant. But it does not offer the same level of stain and color fading protection as capped composite decking. Without cap protection, the composite decking will be easier to fade. And after exposure to the environment, the boards may somewhat discolor during the first few months. Uncapped decking is also more prone to scratches and damage. Of course, this will only happen if the composite decking is overused or has reached the end of its lifespan.

Therefore, we recommend using our capped composite decking. Compared with traditional uncapped decking, our capped composite decking has a longer service life. Composite decking boards with caps have an external plastic coating that makes them extremely stain- and fade-resistant. The boards retain their color when exposed to the environment and are simple to wipe clean.

What Advantages Does Composite Decking Offer?

Are you thinking about having a new deck constructed at your house? Undoubtedly, you have choices. The days of just being able to construct a deck out of wood are long gone. Over the years, composite decks have become incredibly popular, ranking among the best options for decking materials. Wood is undoubtedly a staple and has its own merits, but they are difficult to match for the many advantages of composite decking, which include:

What’s more, compared to traditional wood decking, composite offers one significant advantage: it requires far less upkeep.

Because the substance contains plastic, the boards are stronger and more resistant to decay, dampness, and insects. Even in bright sunshine, the boards won’t crack or warp, and they never need to be painted, stained, or sealed. With extra plastic capping, composite decking boards become stain and fade-resistant and are splinter-free.

Composite Decking has Extraordinary Durability

A deck must be sturdy in order to be worth the money. Additionally, it will be the site of frequent family gatherings. So it must be extremely sturdy to support the weight of guests, furniture, and household animals. This is what you can anticipate from a composite deck. Because they are made of a variety of materials for great strength and resistance to deterioration over time. Unlike wood decking, which can easily leave signs of use on the surface, composite decking is very easy to clean. Even if the surface is slightly scratched, it can also be repaired, which will make your decking look so good even after years of use.

WPC Decking Requires Little Maintenance

Composite decking requires less maintenance than wood decking because it won’t rot and degrade over time. It doesn’t even require repainting or refinishing! To maintain it looking its best, you’ll probably only need to hose it down or power wash it occasionally.

The WPC deck boards can be utilized in swimming pools and other wet locations because not like wood, composite decking absorbs little water, making them highly slip-resistant. Our own ranges come with a 10–25 year guarantee, although we would anticipate them to last much longer. Composite decking has a far longer lifespan than its wooden ancestors due to the enhanced resilience of the boards.

Although they could be a little more expensive when you first buy them. But composite decking has almost no maintenance requirements and keeps looking wonderful year after year. In summary, composite decking requires significantly less upkeep than traditional wood decking, allowing you to spend more time in your garden and less time maintaining your space.

Composite Decking is Very Environmentally Friendly

Composite decks are made without causing any damage to trees! There is essentially no environmental impact because the bulk of them are produced from recycled or waste materials—especially when compared to wood decks, which need a fair quantity of lumber. At the same time, the formula of WPC decking does not contain any harmful substances, so in the process of use, you do not need to worry that the volatilization of harmful substances such as formaldehyde will affect the health of you and your family. Have fun on COOWIN’s decking!

WPC Decks Has Additional Color Options

Wood decks can be painted or stained in a variety of colors, but over time they will probably need some touch-ups or new coats. In contrast, a vast range of colors and finishes can be created for composite decking, all of which will keep their color. COOWIN provides common solid colors and patented artistic colors for you to choose from, which makes composite decking look more beautiful and natural. What’s more, if you don’t find your favorite color on our standard decking color card, we can also customize the decking color for you to satisfy you

Composite Decks Have no Burrs and are Very Safe

No one wants to walk barefoot on wood decking because you never know if you’re going to get pricked by a wood thorn next and have to be careful. But in the process of using composite decking, you don’t need to worry about it, you can even enjoy the bottom of your feet being massaged by decking grooves or wood grains.

Without fear of getting splinters, you can comfortably stroll barefoot across composite decking! You, the kids, and even your pets should be happy about this.
