When composite decking first hit the market around 25 years ago, it was heralded as the best thing to happen to deck building since decking screws. That enthusiasm was short-lived, however, as some significant flaws in the material began to surface after it was in circulation a few years. The most common complaints were that it scratched easily, sagged, and warped over time, and in some cases, developed mold and mildew problems. In recent years, additional setbacks have been discovered in product lines from a variety of manufacturers, while other composite decking products have flourished and continue to push the envelope closer to traditional wood decking. By buying from reputable manufacturers and following their instructions for installation and care, homeowners who choose composite for their new deck can rest easy knowing they’re getting one of the best decking products on the market.
