However, please note that the plastic is unattractive initially, or coated with a print under the tree, and then quickly loses its attractive appearance. The plastic cover is cold to the touch and usually slippery.

Wood-plastic composite (WPC)

WPC is a mixture of sawdust and synthetic binders (polyethylene, polypropylene, or other variety of PVC). On the top layer of printed wood texture or just color in such a way that in appearance this decking is much closer to natural wood than to plastic panels.
The more the composition of WPC natural wood, the higher its quality and price. Is a good product with the content of sawdust, about 80%, the average price ratio will be 50/50, and the material contains less than 50% wood flour refers to the economical segment.

The experts say that misconception to think that plastic decking and WPC will last you forever. In the harsh Russian climate and without careful care, sooner or later the floor will “bloom” and start to deform.
