Wood decking VS composite,which one is the best decking materials for our house?Unlike composite deck boards, untreated wooden boards are subject to insect damage, require frequent staining and sealing and may warp or crack over time. Both products may eventually rot. Treated lumber fades to silver-gray color after exposure to the elements unless it is stained, but it won’t rot and insects won’t attack it. Dried lumber can be stained, but regular applications to maintain the stained appearance. It is subject to warping or cracking as is any exposed lumber. Composite decking lasts a long time and maintains its color well with no maintenance. Comparable wood products require yearly maintenance, but have a lower initial cost.
