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.
Due to the plastic containment of WPC decking, the material has improved durability over its alternatives. This type of decking is designed to be durable and its material, blend and finish make it resistant to lots of the factors that usually reduce the life of wood decking.
WPC decking resists fading, staining, scratching and mould and is so durable that STORM offers a 10-year guarantee on our WPC range against splitting, rotting, cracking and decay.
