Wood vs. Composite Guide

Our most common question: “Should I go with wood or composite for my next decking project”?

The choices are quite simple. If you really like the look of wood and don’t mind a little upkeep (upkeep is optional if you don’t mind your untreated deck to turn grey over time), then wood decking is definitely the way to go. If you don’t want to do any maintenance whatsoever, then composite decking is your best option.
