Advantages

PVC decking offers the most significant fade, stain, and mold resistance among decking products. The products are marketed as low-maintenance and are typically easy to clean and maintain. PVC decking typically doesn't require staining, sanding, or painting. PVC decking is sometimes partially composed of recycled plastic material, making it an environmentally friendly, efficient use of resources. The product is significantly lighter compared to wood composite products and can be bent and shaped to create custom configurations.

Disadvantages

Compared to other synthetic decking products, PVC is the most expensive. The 100% PVC makeup of the board makes it costlier than the wood powder/plastic mix used in composite decking. This cost means that PVC will be a more expensive investment up front, although manufacturers claim that the long life and low maintenance requirements of the deck make it an economical decision in the long run. PVC lacks the realistic feel of wood. Although manufacturers form the product with a realistic wood grain or brushstroke, some contractors and homeowners simply do not like the artificial sheen of the product. PVC is also formulated to resist scratches, stains, and mold, but some wear will still show over the life of the product.

Wood/Plastic Composites

Composite decking is nothing more than wood flour?mixed with?plastics and extruded into a ��low maintenance�� decking board.? Please note I did?not?say ��no maintenance��.? Most composites contain 50% wood and 50% plastic. ?Natural products such as wood are affected by the elements.? This equates to fading, scratching?and contending with dirt, snow, rain, etc. which necessitates some cleaning.? This may sound somewhat counterproductive, but it surely is easier than stripping and staining a wood deck every year.
