I last wrote about Composite Decking material at the beginning of March 2007 in my article 6 Advantages and 6 Disadvantages of Composite Decking.
Since then the author of the article that I linked to has written an update (March 27, 2007) and although there are some good things about composite decking material, and it is maturing as a product, it still has a long way to. The writer comes to the conclusion that the claims of composite material manufactures are erroneous. Those claims are:
- Composite Decking is Maintenance Free
- Composite Decking is Better Than Wood
- Composite Decking Last Forever
Some of these claims have been debunked in lawsuits and others are wrong in the opinion of the author.
