The Difference Between Our PVC and Composite Decking

The Difference Between Our PVC and Composite Decking

Julian Mossanen |

Choosing the right decking material is crucial for your outdoor space. At Composite Deck Direct, we offer both PVC and composite decking, each with unique benefits. In this blog, we'll explore the key differences between our PVC and composite decking to help you make an informed decision for your next project. Whether you prioritize durability, aesthetics, or maintenance, we have the perfect option.

Difference: PVC vs. Composite Decking

In the realm of decking, PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and composite materials have emerged as leading contenders. Although both are partially synthetic, they possess unique properties that cater to distinct preferences and requirements. Let’s explore the characteristics of each and why composite decking ultimately takes the crown.

PVC Decking

Introducing Our PVC Decking, revolutionized by the innovative Korelite Core. This marks a breakthrough in engineered polymer technology, offering advanced durability and stunning aesthetics regardless of weather conditions.

Materials Used in Our PVC Decking

Korelite: Our decking features Korelite on the inside, a lightweight yet strong material engineered to provide structural integrity without adding unnecessary weight. This innovative core ensures that our decking is easy to handle during installation while maintaining exceptional durability over time.

Enhanced Durability: To further enhance the longevity and resilience of our decking, we utilize a durable capping material. This outer layer, made from engineered polymer, acts as a protective barrier against scratches, stains, and the elements. With superior resistance to wear and tear, our capped decking requires minimal maintenance and retains its pristine appearance for years to come.

Advantages of PVC Decking with Korelite

  1. Installation Ease: The reduced weight of Korelite-core decking boards makes them easier to handle and install, saving time and labor costs.

  2. Aesthetic Appeal: The engineered polymer surface can be designed to mimic the look of natural wood, providing a beautiful finish that complements any outdoor space.

  3. Eco-Friendly: Korelite's lightweight nature means less material is used, reducing the environmental impact during manufacturing and transportation.

  4. Less Heat absorption: One of the key benefits of our PVC decking is its ability to dissipate heat. Great for around pools and high sunlight areas.

                PVC decking offers a multitude of benefits, including its flexibility and compatibility with innovative solutions like Dexerdry for rain protection. Unlike traditional wood or composite decking, PVC boards have a unique flexibility that allows them to bend without breaking, making them ideal for curved installations or unconventional designs.

By seamlessly integrating Dexerdry with PVC decking, you can create a dry, usable space beneath your deck, even during rainy weather. This not only enhances the versatility of your outdoor living area but also provides additional protection for the structure of your deck.
