 Not Just a Buzzword Capped Composite decking is here
11 Jan 2018
At first, you may think that capped composite boards are a bit of a buzz word. It is getting a lot of attention as a beneficial blend of composite and PVC, but does it live up to the hype?

Wooden decking is well known for being high maintenance, particularly when it comes to staining and sealing the boards. Composite decking was developed in response to the need to keep re-staining wooden decking in order to maintain its appearance. PVC decking came later, and as they are completely plastic, they are not vulnerable to dirt or mould at all (meaning virtually no maintenance).

Unfortunately, this does come at a cost. Capped composite boards are the best of both worlds containing PVC but still affordable.

Capped composite decking has an additional outer PVC layer on the top of the composite itself reinforcing the structure even further. This outer layer consists of much more plastic than the other boards, but still retains its wooden appearance. The outer layer itself is moisture-resistant and protects the main body of the board from spillages and stains (if anything does get through, a quick wipe with your favourite household cleaner will do!). This therefore makes capped composites a great choice for entertaining friends and family on the decking in the warmer months.

Capped composite boards are resistant to cracks, warping, mould and algae just like PVC boards, but because they are almost entirely composite (aside from the outer layer), this makes them a great middle ground option that is still affordable. The boards are long lasting, durable and hard-wearing against all the elements.
