Composite wood boards are comprised of waste wood and sawdust materials that are combined with cellulose fiber and plastic elements, all kept together by a durable resin. Composite boards are advantageous because they do not require as much cleaning as many other traditional deck woods and materials. Homeowners can keep their decks clean with a simple power wash and spray.

Composite wood is primarily made of recycled materials. Some of the highest concentrations of recycled wood include 95 percent, while some of the lowest include 50 percent, which makes it an ecologically-sound option when compared to traditional wood materials. The boards are also highly durable and resistant to rotting, especially if homeowners take regular care of them. The synthetic materials in their composition allow them to weather physical and exposure damage better than traditional options.

Composite wood is also available in numerous styles and colors, allowing homeowners to purchase different colors, finishes and styles of wood to match their outdoor decor. By purchasing individual boards in different colors and finishes, homeowners can create their own custom mosaics and deck arrangements.
