So what's the difference?
Capped Composite: Capped Composite decking is a mixture of materials. Its core is traditional composite material which is a mixture of wood fiber and plastic. The outer shell, or “cap”, is a durable engineered shell material. Capped composite is resistant to mold, mildew, and fading. For homeowners who don’t have the time, or don’t want to work on their deck after it is finished, this material is easy to maintain.
PVC: PVC Decking is made from Polyvinyl chloride (which contains no wood). The benefits of this product are that is resistant to mold, stains, and fading. If you are looking for a low-maintenance deck, PVC is easy to maintain and clean! PVC decking is also environmentally friendly because it is composed of recycled plastic material. If you are looking for a custom shape, PVC is lighter than most woods, making it easy to bend. PVC offers a long lasting and resilient touch.
