ABOUT COMPOSITE DECKING

 

Composite wood decking is typically made from a mixture of waste wood and recycled plastic, including recycled plastic grocery bags. The recycled material is highly durable, stable, and weatherproof and resembles natural wood in color and texture. Composite decking is therefore extremely practical; it also plays its part in re-cycling. However it does not have the full authentic character of natural wood.  Composite decking is available in a wide range of colors, imitating a variety of hardwoods. It has a pressed molded surface, giving the appearance of wood grain. Matching posts, steps, and railings are also available.

 

The following leading composite decking manufacturers have comprehensive websites, with information on all aspects, including online catalogs, colors and materials, and care and maintenance.

 

LEADING USA COMPOSITE DECKING MANUFACTURERS


EverGrain. EverGrain, based in Joplin, Missouri, is a leading manufacturer of composite wood decking. It is a subsidiary of the Tamko building products group. EverGrain Decking, which is made from recycled material, is available in four colors: Cedar, Redwood, Weathered Wood, and Cape Cod Grey. Slip resistance exceeds ADA guidelines. The slip resistance is achieved through a true-to-life grain effect, which is produced by a compression molding process. In addition to residential applications, EverGrain decking is used at marine docks, golf clubs, and ski resorts. 



 

Trex. Trex Company, based in Winchester, Virginia and founded in 1996, is a leading manufacturer of composite wood decking. The decking is made by recycling waste wood, reclaimed pallet wrap, and plastic grocery bags. It claims to recycle about 50% of the recycled grocery bags available on the market. Trex Decking is available in five product ranges, all carefully designed to resemble natural wood in color and texture. Because Trex contains natural wood fiber, slight fading will occur with exposure to sunlight and moisture. Trex reaches its fully weathered color after 12 to 16 weeks.
