What are the disadvantages of composite decking?

Fading and damages
Darker composite deck colors may fade over time. This is an unavoidable process that happens due to UV rays, weathering, and high foot traffic. Other drawbacks include noticeable surface damage. Severe scratches and deep gouges are common issues with composite deck products.

Can you pressure wash composite decking?

PRESSURE WASHING YOUR COMPOSITE DECKING
Pressure washing is not usually recommended for composite decking. If done incorrectly, it can be a big mistake. If you must pressure wash, just remember to keep it at the lowest pressure possible and no closer than 8″ from the surface.

Do composite decks get hot?

Trex decking does not typically get hotter than pressure-treated wood, although on a hot day with a blazing sun, nearly any surface will get uncomfortably hot. Lighter colored boards tend to be slightly cooler than darker composite boards.

Which is better composite or PVC decking?

Aesthetics: Capped composite decking has a more wood-like appearance whereas PVC decking, due to its all-plastic construction, has an enhanced wood look. Heat Dissipation: With enhanced UV protection, capped PVC decking offers slightly better heat dissipation than capped composite.

Is composite decking worth the cost?

Is composite decking worth the extra cost? Composite decking will always be more expensive than traditional wood decking, however if you looks at the cost over 5 or more years, it starts to make more sense. One of the biggest advantages composite decking has over wood is that it requires virtually no maintenance.

What should I look for in a composite deck?

In a Nutshell
Choose composite lumber decking based on your budget; style and color preferences; fastener choice; and site and code requirements. Quality composite decking prices, like Trex decking, are two to three times more than pressure-treated wood but lasts two to three times longer.

Is composite decking slippery when wet?

Wood is more likely to have smooth spots created by wear; such spots may be slippery when wet. Most brands of composite decking have textured finishes to make them slip-resistant. Water and ice accumulation from rain and snow may create slippery conditions on any deck surface.
