If you’re using decking to build a dock, pool surround or other application with direct water contact, you need a product that can withstand frequent exposure to waves, rain, and in some cases, full water submersion. But, finding decking that can stand up to these harsh conditions is easier said than done. UV rays and moisture will deteriorate wood decking, and several composite decking brands have been subject to rotting, cracking and other field failures related to moisture exposure.
To keep your deck looking good no matter where you install it, make sure it can protect against moisture intrusion all the way to the board’s core. For example, ChoiceDek composite decking is made with a patented process that fully encapsulates wood fibers in plastic. The boards are tough enough to be installed anywhere without compromising their moisture resistance.
