As the world of deck building moves towards the innovations of composite lumber, there are a lot of options and a lot of questions. With so many choices for low-maintenance lumber alternatives, you might be asking what makes Lumberock® different? Why should you choose our product over another leading brand? There are a number of reasons.
When we say "composite" we are referring to the combination of high-density polyethylene plastic and a mixed mineral compound. There are no wood-fills or organic materials like sawdust or wood fibers in our product that will break down and rot, unlike other brands whose wood-fill products are known to grow mildew and decompose despite their claims of longevity. Lumberock® really will last a lifetime.
While wood is still favored for its cost and appearance, the extrusion of plastic lumber reduces deforestation. Not only that but, let's face it, wood deteriorates, cracks, rots, splinters and is prone to mold and mildew. It requires sanding, staining and chemical treatments and needs replacement over time, meaning more expense and more labor.
