What is Composite Decking Made of?
Different Types of Composite Boards
Different Design Options
Aesthetically, there are many textures and colours of composite decking materials. There is a multitude of products from companies like Trex that can range from a detailed wood look to any colour you can desire to match your home space or other outdoor pieces and make your project.
Most popular brands like Trex offer higher grain looks to mimic most wood types that you could want, including replicated exotic woods (with no maintenance!). There is composite decking available that feels different to the touch and no two are meant to look alike. Composite also has less maintenance than wood and doesn’t require stain or sealant. Some higher-end decking even has no “plastic” look to them but the price can go up to three times more.
How Much do Composite Deck Boards Cost?
The biggest deterrence from composite decking is the price. To compare costs, Quality composite decking can cost two to three times more than pressure-treated wood. But, composite products last two to three times longer, with Trex claiming no maintenance costs and a 25-year warranty. Other available decking options can cost up to $30 per square foot.
Trex offers prices within three categories of quality of decking: the lowest coming to about $11 per square foot and the highest coming to about $20 per square foot for an installed deck (materials only). Calculate a deck estimate with Trex.
