Less air pollution is promoted by WPCs, too. Unlike treated wood, they do not contain copper, chromium, arsenic and other such toxins. You do not need to stain or seal them even after a long period of use, so you avoid ingesting harmful fumes that linger in your area when treating wood.
WPC composite decking might be more costly in the beginning but this product continues to look great year after year and has virtually no cost of upkeep. As already stated, composite decking requires less maintenance than traditional wood decking.
This means you can spend far less time maintaining your space and reaching into your pockets and it gives you far more time to spend money on other things. WPC decking will last longer than its timber alternatives and therefore incur fewer overall costs for replacements and overhauls.
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.
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.
