The use of synthetic wood has become quite popular in the past decade.
Synthetic wood decking manufacturers (including but not limited to Trex, Timbertech, Maclumber, Axion International, and PERTH) design quality products for customers that will last for years.
The benefits of using plastic wood are numerous:
-Easy to clean: simply spray your decking with a hose or use a wet towel to clean
-Mold resistant: never worry about your composite decking become susceptible to mold
-Earth friendly: composite decks are made from 95% recycled wood and plastic saved from landfills
-Natural colors: synthetic wood is available in several earth friendly colors blending into its surroundings
-Warranties: every company has their own warranty coverage ranging from 2 years to 20 years.
Unfortunately, plastic polymers are derived from conventional feed-stock (oil), and when in contact with water can create a slippery surface, causing slips and falls. To prevent such slip and fall accidents, Handi-Ramp has designed and manufactured non-slip aluminum treads that are perfectly compatible with synthetic wood. Each tread can be installed in less than a minute and comes with a lifetime residential warranty.
