Here’s a quick rundown on composite decks. Most are made from recycled wood scraps and plastic – making them pretty eco-friendly. They come in a variety of earth-tones and wood colors to match your outdoor decor. Many manufacturers also add fake wood grains, either in the coloring or the mold in which the planks are formed.
Composite decks come in a plank form, similar to traditional treated wood planks. You also have the option now to buy composite deck tiles. If you don’t want to completely replace your existing wood deck, you can use these tiles to cover the entire area.
