What exactly are capped composite decking boards?

Capped composite decking planks are very popular among composite decking suppliers. This is due to the fact that they not only have a wood-like appearance. However, they are also extremely sturdy and long-lasting, requiring little care. Capped composite decking combines regular composite wood with a long-lasting polymer protective shell. Covered composite decking, unlike pressure-treated wood decking, will not chip, break, or rot.

The wood-plastic composite core is then encased in a single, durable polymer cover. To create a high-performance-capped composite deck, the core is co-extruded with a non-organic surface component.

The combination of these qualities gives exceptional resistance to sunlight, stains, mold, and germs in the add-on composite decking.

As a result, we offer composite decking in a variety of hues. For example, redwood composite decking, blue composite decking, teak composite decking, and so on.
