Composite decking prices have exciting new options for 2013. Manufacturers have come out with new price-point products that are highly competitive with wood for initial installation cost. Even when the short term costs of staining and maintenance are considered, the net expense of price point composite decking is far lower than real wood. This cost difference will only continue to compound for the life of your deck. The great thing about this seasons offerings is that they all are the new co-extruded type of composite decking, a wonderful benefit because of scratch, stain and fade resistance.
