Why You Should Choose a Composite Deck

Honeysuckle Nursery Composite Deck

A composite deck elevates the form and function of a traditional wood deck.

There’s something special about a great deck. A deck opens your home to the outdoors and creates a welcoming space for you and your family to relax in the warmth of the sun, read or talk outside, or enjoy some delicious barbecue. It’s an extension of your home and it needs to withstand the wear and tear of regular use as well as environmental hazards. A composite deck offers a beautiful finish with a sturdy build that comes with advantages over a wood deck.

Low Maintenance

Wood decks are prone to wear and need regular maintenance to be kept in good condition. Without this maintenance, decks will begin to splinter and rot. They eventually become ugly to look at and dangerous to use if they are not well-maintained. A composite deck doesn’t need to be regularly maintained to remain attractive and sturdy. A quick power wash every so often is enough to keep a composite deck looking as good as the day it was built.

Smooth Aesthetic

With a wood deck, visible screws and nails are unavoidable. However, with a composite deck, color-matched fasteners and hidden hardware are part of the construction to give the whole deck a seamless look. There is nothing inviting about visible hardware, so a composite deck is a great option for creating a deck that is aesthetically pleasing and enjoyable to spend time on.


Unsurprisingly, wood decks are made of timber. Composite decks, however, do not have any timber in their construction. A composite deck does not require any timber. Composite decks utilize recycled materials for their construction, with some styles using up to 80% recycled materials. In addition, much of this recycled material is in the hard-to-recycle category.
