Workability of Composites

In addition to their exceptional aesthetics, modern composites provide a greater range of workability that enables further expansion of deck builders’ creativity. While contractors can install composite decking with the same tools they use for traditional wood decking, composite decking is easier to bend into creative shapes, and is easily machined, including ripping and routing to form custom shapes.

The Deck Store’s Robert Heidenreich noted that the composites he uses “cut and machine far easier than anything else, so help me achieve my design vision.” A builder of whimsical children’s play structures that often use decking echoes this point: “We love the workability of MoistureShield, as it allows us to stress and carve our designs,” said Todd Lehman, owner and director of design for Cre8Play.
