WPCs usually have low moisture absorption and a high resistance to rotting, insect and damage by Uv rays. Their low maintenance requirement and expenses truly make them the preferred materials by many people these days compared to traditional wood. Because it is splinter-free and resistant to warping, it makes them even more popular. Undoubtedly, they do help save the environment as they use nearly 100% recycled and recyclable materials. So, the next time you look for decking materials, try to consider WPCs.
How to Care for WPC Decking
In the past, homeowners only had one choice of material when building a deck: wood. Though beautiful, wood decks require rigorous maintenance, and frequent resanding and refinishing. Several companies have offered a solution to this problem by creating WPC decking. WPC decking material is made from wood byproducts (such as sawdust or wood chips) and plastics. The decking comes in many different colors and styles. Though this material will not require extensive upkeep, some maintenance is mandatory--you should sweep and scrub your deck occasionally. In most cases, stains can be removed, but since WPC decking cannot be sanded and refinished, address stains immediately.
Building New Deck
When designing a new trex or composite deck, the spacing between floor joists should be 12 inches on center. On center means that the measurement should be taken from the center of a joist edge to the center of the next joist edge. Joists are typically "two-by" pieces of lumber, most often two inches by eight inches, and the actual measurement of the two inch side is one and one-half inches. This means that the empty space between joists will be 10 and one-half inches.
