Water absorption means wood-plastic composite (WPC) decks can rot, peel, weather, or blister. Plus, wood-plastic composite (WPC) decks need to be washed with bleach or other chemicals to ward off mold.

Alternative decking from Qizhen is one solid color through to its core, so scrapes and scratches are practically invisible. All Qizhen plastic lumber is protected by advanced ultra-violet stabilizers, so while no material is entirely resistant to the effects of sunlight, Qizhen is close.

Spring is a favorite home improvement season, and a top project on many homeowners' lists is building a new deck or improving an existing one. As awareness grows of how home improvement projects affect the environment, more homeowners are discovering the advantages of incorporating green building materials into their deck plans.

Consumers expect to double their spending on green products and services in the next year, according to the 2007 ImagePower Green Brands Survey. Choices for homeowners to bring more green goods to their homes now go beyond compact florescent light bulbs and insulated windows – they can extend to deck projects as well.

Today, decking materials are available that are not only long lasting and aesthetically appealing, but also make efficient use of recycled materials. Many homeowners are turning to composite decking as a way to incorporate an environmentally responsible material into their homes, while still ensuring a durable deck that will stand the test of time, and perhaps most importantly, look great for years to come.

Decking material choices have expanded well beyond traditional options. One alternative is wood-plastic composite decking, which is growing in popularity and provides homeowners a decking material that does not need staining or painting – appealing with today's busy lifestyles. A recent study by The Freedonia Group, Inc., projected that alternative decking materials will continue to lead the decking materials market in yearly gains through 2011, with wood-plastic composite decking providing the strongest growth.

When replacing or installing a deck, wood-plastic composite decking can provide homeowners with an environmentally friendly option. Some products, such as ChoiceDek® composite decking, are made using recycled content, including recovered wood fiber and recycled polyethylene plastics from items such as milk jugs and grocery sacks, keeping what might have been unused waste out of landfills. Sue Snuggs of Weyerhaeuser explains the benefits of composite decking materials, "ChoiceDek provides a solution for homeowners looking for strong decking materials that also take advantage of modern recycling technologies. Homeowners concerned about the environment can feel good about building a deck that is engineered to last and that makes good use of both post-consumer and post-industrial waste."

The materials used to produce wood plastic composite lumber include thermoplastic resins, most notably, low and high density polyethylene, polypropylene and polyvinyl chloride. The polymers utilized typically need to have melting temperature that is below the thermal decomposition of wood (~225 degrees C). Veranda Wood/Plastic Composite Deck Board
