When choosing the Composite Decking product that is right for your project, sometimes our feet get overlooked in the equation. Outdoor deck surfaces exposed to long periods of direct sunlight can reach very high temperatures making it very uncomfortable to enjoy without taking proper precautions. On the opposite side, during cold winter months or rainy conditions, the surface can become quite slippery. In this blog we want to feature a few products that are manufactured with our feet in mind.

The brand new Trex Transcend Lineage line is engineered with Heat-mitigating technology in the shell to reflect the sun and keep the deck boards cooler. The line is offered in 2 colors which are lighter shades to help reduce heat retention.  Trex Transcend Lineage is backed by a 25-year fade and stain warranty for added piece of mind. Lineage is now stocked at SWP so please call today for more information.

Another fantastic option for a cooler deck surface is Polymer or “PVC”. Products such as the Timbertech Azec Vintage line that can stay up to 30% cooler than competing composite deck boards. With a 50-year fade and stain warranty and a class A flame spread rating this product can’t be overlooked. The vintage line also has excellent slip resistance in wet and cold conditions.

Fiberon Paramount PVC decking is another outstanding performer when it comes to reduced heat retention and slip resistance.
Call your SWP sales representative today for more information on PVC decking.

When advanced traction and slip resistance is important, Deckorators Voyage line is an outstanding option. The Voyage series offers up to 34% greater surface traction then competing composite products. With its mineral core, Voyage is rated for ground and water contact which makes it ideal for areas near water where slipping is a concern.

In conclusion, while all decking will get hot when exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods of times, there are innovative products on the market today to help make those hot days more comfortable. Please call SWP today for samples of any of the products mentioned.
