Hi, I’m Todd with Deckmasters here to show you the difference between Cellular PVC decking and Composite Decking.
Composite Decking came out in about 1992 it’s made out of wood, fiber wood flower or wood filler, both are recyclable materials, plastic, shrink rap, garbage bags and milk cartons. That’s all kind of blended and ground up, blended in. These five here are composite from all different manufacturers and I will show scratch how it scratches fairly easily.
People have you know they move grill around, they move the furniture around, little kids on the deck it might have a little bit of dirt or sand that make your feet, big dog jumping off the deck. But here is the scratch as you can see they scratch rather easily. Now this is the Cellular PVC that can—there’s a hard I don’t know if you can see this or not but this is a hard outer shell. This table is made out of all Cellular and I’ll run the tool over that.
Another nice feature with the Cellular PVC is the mold resistance where the Composite is wood fiber, wood filler, recyclable garbage bag, grocery bags, shrink wrap that has a tendency to mold from the inside out. Where the Cellular PVC, you can kind of see the hard outer shell it doesn’t have any of the wood filler, wood fiber it’s more of either a flax filler or a fiber glass filler.
Now they are real nice benefit of the Cellular PVC is the easy clean-up everyone likes to grill on their deck, every kids with suntan lotion, barbeque grease, ketchup, mustard, suntan lotion with the Composites being they’re wood filler if you just spray a little bit of this on the Composite board, you will have a stain, where the Cellular PVC you can spray that and it’s just soap and water clean up. Cellular PVC also has a high impact resistant.
