Which is better PVC or WPC decking?
Now, there are more and more different decking materials in the market, such as WPC decking, PVC decking, etc, then, which one is better for house deck plans? Do you know?
Firstly, let’s know more about these two kinds of materials, the raw material, formula, performance, etc. In this way, we can choose a better product for our deck.
EVODEK composite deck boards are manufactured with our patented formula and by an innovative dual-screw extrusion process, combining superior performance with naturalistic looks and textures of real wood. EVODEK has adopted Color Streaking and 3D Wood Grain Technology for uncapped WPC decking material in the industry.
Art Color for a deck is a term used to describe the varied streaking on EVODEK composite decking and cladding. By adding different colors at precise moments during the manufacturing process, we are able to create a more nuanced color palette, or maybe variegated color, on a monotonous board, to create the rich, natural color variation found in real wood such as cedar, redwood, and ipe. To get the best composite decking with the most natural wood look.
The composite decking means quality, beauty, and minimal maintenance, saving you time and money. Also, offers superior performance that you can’t get from wood. EVODEK composite resists termites, won’t rot, warp, crack, or splinter. No need for regular maintenance or painting.
What’s more, EVODEK composite decking is child-friendly thanks to its slip-resistance. EVODEK decking products have undergone the Pendulum Slip Resistance Test by the standard of BS 7976-2. EVODEK 3D Wood Grain decking has better slip resistance by virtue of the embossed pattern. The decking with the grooved pattern, likewise, is also highly resistant to slip, thanks to its grooves on the surface. So when your children play on the decking, it’s very safe, nothing is more important than your children’s safety. You want to do all that you can to protect them, even if they are more accident-prone at their young ages.
Like composite decking, PVC is made from artificial materials. But instead of being a mix of wood and plastic, PVC decking is 100% plastic. Like composite, it was designed to minimize maintenance and prevent common problems associated with wood, such as mold and insect infestations.
Although it’s easy to clean, the surface is more smooth than composite. It is maybe slippy when wet. And when the temperature changes suddenly, PVC decking can expand and contract. This makes the structure less stable over time. Because the wood fibers in composite decking make it more rigid, it won’t expand and contract as easily as plastic in direct sunlight.
So, we can see the advantages of composite decking easily.
Looks like real wood more
Better slip resistance Less prone to warping caused by temperature changes
Can be 100% recycled
Rich colors and surfaces for choosing
Of course, as we all know, each material has its advantages and disadvantages. So, you can also choose the material you like or your childlike.
