Decking means a flat platform composed of uprights, bearers, joist, and flooring material usually built outdoors around the house's main structure. Decking completes the aesthetics of the exterior of homes without much effort or expense. Traditionally decking is made from wood (either timber, cedar, redwood, pine). However, modern-day construction materials such as vinyl or composite wood also see much use in decking. Such materials come with the added advantage of resistance to insect attacks and splintering, buckling and warping.
Decks are usually floored with timber for a holiday feel and to match a pool or beach area. Composite decking like plastic lumber is the fastest-growing decking material sold today. Most of the composite decking products are made from PE or PVC and come in a wide variety of stylish colours. Some composites are a mix of wood fibres and recycled plastic that stands up well to extreme weather conditions, stain and don't splinter, warp, split or decay.
