Seven Trust’s wood plastic composite decking (WPC decking) is, as the name suggests – formed of a combination of recycled plastic and wood fibres. The two main materials in our products, they work together and result in high performing products, which retain an authentic finish and feel. In forming just the right blend of materials – we believe that we have found a balance that few decking manufacturers have.

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.
