Composite materials are the most popular, as well as the first of all the man-made decking materials. Today there are hundreds of different manufacturers producing different types of composites. When choosing a composite decking material, it is very important to discuss all the advantages and disadvantages of specific materials with a professional, since the properties and applications vary. Composite decking materials have been on the market for the longest time when compared with other man-made materials, and as such they come in the widest range of colours and patterns. Royal Decks is proud to work with many of the composite materials described below.

Applications of Trex should be carefully considered because of some possible complications such as uneven fading (when built around trees) and mildew (in humid areas). Trex is one of the few decking materials with Ministers Ruling.
